  1. Hi, Karen. What a great idea for a scrapbook page. You are off to a great start with your blog. Your jewelry pieces are very nice. I am sorry for the loss of your sweet Jared. I can't even imagine what you are going through. I am going to follow your blog. I am not a stalker, just a little nuts which you already know since you have read my blog.
    Can't believe the weekend is almost over - I hate Mondays!!
