The lovely Miss Lori Anderson has organized a blog hop today to support 7000 Bracelets of Hope.  This outstanding organization will give the bracelets to one of 7000 families having children with rare diseases to show them love and support.  That's as far as I had to read, I am in!  One caveat though...  Lori said make ONE bracelet, which I read after making three.  A good mistake I think because a: I was IN A GROOVE and having a good time creating and b: I plan to send them all to the 7000 Bracelets of Hope.

Take a look...
