Something sure has their attention.
Wait, what is that among my Liriope?
Is it a cake on my doorstep?
It's a mockup of my pom pom American flag.
I had hoped to participate in a blog hop celebrating pom poms. Things happen and that did not come to fruition. I had planned to make an American flag before, I think, any of us had an idea of the terror to occur in Boston. Then, I kept hearing on our local news of the anniversary of the bombing of the Murrow Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. Living in the Tulsa area, only 2 short hours from OKC, I remember going to visit the site shortly after the bombing. I have been to the incredible memorial and attended a damaged (and now repaired) church across the street from the site, while I was working in the City. Then the local news continued with the tragedies to strike our area. April 24, 2008 a tornado struck Catoosa (basically east Tulsa), killing 7 people. We are fast approaching the first anniversary of the devasting tornado in Joplin, MO which is only about a 4 hour drive. The blog hop has very creative ladies from around the globe. I am absolutely amazed at their creativity, accomplishments, and dedication to their crafts. So, the fuss is all about resiliency and those who selflessly help each other on a day to day basis.
