Today I am a Guest Curator on Jenny Doh's site, Crescendoh.

My Art Saves story is here - click on the link

Check in every day as there are links to 2 of my favourite blogs and these links change every day.
The links are on the bottom of my section on Crescendoh's home page
So over the next week you will get to read posts from 14 of my favourite blogs.

Crescendoh is an amazing site and be sure to check out all the links (in red) on the left hand side of the home page.

Congratulations to Michael & Chantelle!! I think we may have a similar annoucement soon, from Michael's old Prep buddy!

I've just had a quick visit to Cresendoh, I don't think I've visited before, lots of exploring to do over there when I get a bit of time.

Great article Allison and your blog looks great.

That's a site I'm going to enjoy :-))

Reading about the quilt making really took me back to my own childhood... guess lots of Grandmothers used newspaper templates.

I bet your mom is pleased to know that you've followed her passion... to find your own, & to honor her.
