  1. This sounds so awesome!and it's for such a great cause. I just wish I lived closer. Blessings, Joanne

  2. Deirdra ~ do people need to RSVP or register for this or something?

  3. This sounds like a wonderful function. I hope you get a good turn out. Wish Ohio wasn't so far away.

  4. Thank you for the award and wonderful comment you left on my A Shade of Whimsy page!!

  5. This sounds like something I would love to participate in but can't - I live in Canada -a bit of a drive!

  6. No need to RSVP. And don't worry, if you can't make it I'm going to post my presentation here later.

  7. That sounds amazing! What a great opportunity!

    And thanks so much for the award!

  8. I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better. But then again: That’s my opinion.
    we offer cheap ed hardy up to 35%-65% off, ed hardy ed hardy is a kind of street style clothing online store, they are all the newest and cheap ed hardy.

  9. Sounds fascinating, but a bit too far from the Great White North. Uh, make that the Great Green North. It is summer time up here.

  10. This sounds great. Guess I'll be checking into your blog. I believe your notes will help me.
