My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Many Thanks

Hi Everyone,

I don't have a card today, but I thought I would just catch up on a few random bits of life before the weekend arrives.  We were going to see some friends this weekend, but the flu bug is going around their house, so we're rescheduling with them for the obvious reason.  Unless I can round up someone else, we will be watching the Kentucky Derby by ourselves on Saturday :) 

I was so excited to have my get well card featured on the 365 Cards blog!  It was "In the Spotlight" for day # 58.  The card was a recent personal fave, so I was thrilled someone else liked it too :)  Thank you 365 Cards!

Also, before I left on vacation last month, I received this lovely award from Monica.  I didn't have time then, so I'm making time now to say thank you...So, so much!  This lady is just super sweet, kind, and generous with her time, talent and comments.  She sells her cards and donates the proceeds to all kinds of charities. Currently there are a number of children who are going to school due to the $ she's raised. I encourage you to visit her blog, as I know you will be blessed by her kind spirit that comes right through the screen :)

So friends, this is for you!  Please take it and pass it on to anyone who has cheered you along, or helped you advance your crafting skills :)

If you are in need of some paper, my friend Cheryl is purging some of her stash, and sharing it in a bit of blog candy.  Click on the photo on my side bar to enter.

And I still want to share a few more Italy photos, but I just don't have time to write the post right now, so I will leave you with a few random photos...

Florence is AWESOME!  Look...

Couture for dogs...lol!

Have a great weekend!  And if you see a number one below somewhere on this post, I have no idea how it got there and I can't delete it.  So weird, so just ignore it :)

Congrats on the spotlight, Karin! You deserve it =) I love these pictures....reminds me of why I loved Florence. That doggie wear is beyond bizarre, though.... ;)
