oh goodness, my thoughts are all over the place today.
The images from Haiti are so very heartbreaking. I watch in increments and feel so bad when I have to turn away.
And in the midst of all of our heartbreak and desperation and grief over the situation there are words of hate peddlers like Pat Roberts and Rush Limbaugh. So unbelievably ugly and vile, I can't even begin to process it.
Let us make our care visible and heard and drown out their shrill voices and mean spirits.
Alicia, of Posie Gets Cozy, has provided a link to a wonderful list of crafters compiled by Susan Beal of West Coast Crafty, that are donating portions of their sales for earthquake relief in Haiti, etc.

The amazing artist, Rebecca Sower, is posting wonderful stories of the people of Haiti that she has come to know and love and cherish as family.
a very poor segue but from the weighty to the fun ...
Elizabeth, at Creative Breathing is having a gnome party and giveaway of one of her darling peg dolls (with adorable sidekick bunny!).
Kate, of The Garden Bell, will be celebrating her 100th post shortly with a giveaway.
oh and some good news from me at long last ... I ran all of my errands Wednesday by myself and did some housecleaning. Yippie! And yesterday, Thursday, I finally got my hair done! I had canceled three or four appointments and couldn't recognize that gray haired old lady staring back at me (in shock and disbelief and denial) in the mirror! Hurray Hurrah! No more stripes. ;) Hopefully the weekend will bring a trip to the movie theater and catching up on all of the good movies we've missed.
oh! and I love that Valentines and heart shapes are popping up everywhere ...
Wishing you a warm and cozy, heart filled kind of weekend! :)
