Hey- I'm definitely praying for you and wishing you the best this month. Keep us updated on your cycles. I don't think I've heard anything from you in awhile about where you're at. By the way, I'm super excited about how crafty you are! I love to do all things scrapbooking, crocheting, painting, picture frames, etc. I've slowly but surely been keeping a record of everything I make to keep in a portfolio. I've considered selling on etsy, but want to have more of a selection first, and then open it up for custom-made projects because I like my gifts to be personal. Meanwhile, I'm working on making baby blankets for couples who experience infertility and then get pregnant. I want to use my arts and crafts to glorify God and bless other people. I wish we lived closer together and we could do crafty stuff together! Anyways, blessings on everything.

Hey Mel,
this is interesting. I was just gonna say that the Blarney Stone is in Ireland on a castle. If I remember correctly kissing it bestows a gift (maybe of speech) to the person. It's been awhile. But I know it bestows you with something ;)
