Welcome to Vicki's grow your blog hop party.
My name is Valerie and I've made some wonderful friends because of blogging and my life is fuller because of them.
For those popping by for the hop:
I enjoy crocheting and am learning to knit.
I make mosaics and enjoy sewing but since I don't have a lot of downtime, I make small projects.
I love to play with new elements because I think it is important to keep learning.
I drop toys each month because I believe surprises are important...and it makes me feel good to know I made someone's day.
I am married to a wonderful man and we have 2 amazing children. They are teenagers so we don't travel much but we do a lot of fun things as a family. I stay busy but between work and my family, I love to create things and cook to unwind.
Our family includes 4 pets. We never set out to have 4 fur babies but things happen and they are precious members of our family.
In honor of this party, I made a Valentine's pincushion to give away so please leave a comment before you go! No strings attached, anyone can enter.
The drawing will be held February 1st and one winner will be chosen via random number generator.
Thank you for stopping by and thank you to Vicki for hosting!
