"What praises can we offer To thank thee, Lord most high? In our place thou didst suffer; In out place thou didst die, By heaven's plan appointed, To ransom us, our King. O Jesus, the annointed, To thee our love we bring!"
When I was a kid I loved to check out drawing how-to books from the library. Some of my VERY favorite books were those put out by Ed Emberley. (Click his name to be directed to his fabulous website where you there all sorts of fun activities!!)
He had several book that were based on colors (Big Purple Drawing Book, Big Green Drawing Book, etc.) He including everything from cute little animals to intricate pirate ships. I remember pouring over them and drawing all sorts of environments and creatures.
Easter is just around the corner, and I wanted to share some of the cute crochet projects I've been seeing around the web lately!
You all know how much I love color, so I'm adding my especially favorite colorful Spring creations here!

Even though I am LDS, when I was growing up, my parents always tried to expose us to lots of culturally diverse experiences. My grandmother (on my dad's side) was Jewish, and so my parents decided that when we were children we would learn about and celebrate Hanukkah! And we did - every year!
