I have a Bosch Dishwasher and I caution you to read all the reviews you can find. We have had problems with it, as have many others, since it was first installed. It continues to be a problem.

Hi, Beth. I am so sorry to hear about the problems you've had with your dishwasher. I hope you get a resolution soon.

Hi there! My tribe and I are creating a link party list and would love to add your party. Can you please tell me when your party starts and what you accept in it? I hope our list will bring you more traffic! Cynthia

Hi, Cynthia! I am so sorry I just saw this now. My party starts at 8 p.m. EST on Mondays and we accept anything that is family friendly but no Etsy shops, stores, etc.

Thank you so much,

I am wondering if you could please tell me where you purchased the mason jar pump at? I have been to the Michaels and Hobby Lobby here in the suburbs of Chicago and the people at Hobby Lobby looked at me as if were insane! I have not tried Joann's yet. Maybe I just talked to the wrong sales people? Thanks for your help, I have everything else on your list to make the rate I am going I should have them ready for next spring! ;)

Hi Carol,

I bought the mason jar pump at Target near the other mason jar products. I also found it on Amazon after doing a search and here is the link:

I hope that helps!

Hi Mary Beth, I hope you're doing well!

I was invited by Erin of The Blue Eyed Dove blog to participate in a Tour Through Blogland, In case you aren't familiar with it each blogger shows some pictures of their home and answers 4 questions about their blog/blogging process. Then they introduce their readers to 2-3 new readers, who then do the same thing the following Monday.

Here is a link to Erin's post

I would like to invite you to participate. My post will go out next Monday and if you would like to join the Tour, I'll announce you at the end of my post on Monday.

Let me know if you'd like to participate. Right now all I need from you is a short bio, headshot and possibly blog logo if you have one. Then next Monday (Aug 4) you will share some pictures of your home/projects, answer the same 4 questions about your blog/blogging process and lastly introduce a few more bloggers. Hopefully that all makes sense.

I look forward to hearing back from you!

Hi Marybeth!

I have wanted to contact you for awhile! I have subscribed to quite a few different folks, their blogs...etc. However, yours is one I have never regretted subscribing to and look forward to your posts! I am a craft-addicted girl as well and very much a Christ follower.

I just think you make or...find...such cute ideas and also very inspirational stuff too! I am a motivational speaker for my career and just love networking with creative souls. So I guess I just wanted to encourage you and let you know folks appreciate what you do and sometimes there are days that you create the only smile someone may have! Be Well!

If you 'd like to check out my websites, here are the addresses:

I just taught myself how to design websites not too long ago (I am a novice!) I would love to know what you think!

You seem like such a fun gal! Where do you live? Hope all is well in your world today!

Warm Regards,
