Hopping into Spring and Artful Gathering Hopping

Life has been hopping here at the Cook homestead...in more ways than one!
We just had our grandchildren over this past weekend, and needless to say, 
they had a blast at PawPaw & Nana's house.
They jumped and hopped and wrestled, 
and we laughed enough to fill up a hot air balloon!
Alton is 4, and loves driving his Jeep and riding his bike.  You would not believe how much Samantha, who is 14-1/2 months, loves to ride around in the backyard with her brother.  She is one little girl who loves to ride in a Jeep!
She fits right into our Jeep driving, Bronco bustin' & 
Land Rover driving group!

We've had unseasonal cool weather here, 
and we've been lovin' every minute of it!  
Usually by now we would be running the air conditioner full blast...
Yee haw, is all I can say!

We are getting so close to opening up class registration for 
Artful Gathering 2013....
May 1st is just around the corner!
Now...on to the hop news...and...

Each week I will announce the next featured blog for you to visit, and there you will find a new secret word or words that you will need to collect along your way. Once you have collected all the words from each blog you visit, they will work out to say a very artsy phrase. Here are the rules:


  1. For your chance to win, you must collect all the secret code words and submit them upon the final destination blog in May. A random drawing will be conducted from those participants who have submitted the complete collection of secret words.



     

  2. Only one winner will be randomly drawn from the list of participants who have collected all the secret words.

     




Remember to collect all the secret words. These words will work out to say a very artful phrase, and you'll need all the pieces to be eligible for the final prize drawing!
