That's it folks! Thanks for stopping by! Let us know how you liked this month's posts! Better yet, prep some posts for next month's Carnival hosted by Comfortable Shoes Studio!

(Note: Please let me know if I forgot anyone or if you're under the wrong category. I was worried that I wasn't going to get anyone because the carnival wasn't working so I did this from scratch. >_<;; Hopefully this is acceptable. :D)


  1. Wonderful carnival. Well done for getting it out without the blog carnival site!

  2. Thanks Millie! It was nice for my first time doing it! Yeah. XD Luckily I knew some HTML otherwise I'd be in trouble. XD

  3. Finally got around to checking out your links - spent a couple of hours indulging in my favorite subject - making a mark! Thanks for doing all the legwork, so to speak. I'll be looking forward to the next one, since I especially enjoyed comfortable shoes studio's take on things.

  4. Thanks for the reply Sheryl! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! No problem, I'm glad that all the hard work paid off for your enjoyment. :3 I also like Comfortable Shoes articles in her blog as well. :D But everyone I thought was great. :D
