Creativity in the Midwest

It's quite a bit cooler up here, compared to the South! I couldn't imagine doing crochet in Georgia these days, but I could do it in Ohio! There really hasn't been much activity at http://crochet-in-ohio.blogspot.com/ but the little crochet projects are just the cutest and worth a look! (I love quick projects!)
Now let's take a look at the wonderful artwork at http://amulti-coloredlife.blogspot.com/ Sue paints some amazing pictures of rural life. The portrait of Zeus the dog reminds me of Shadow a little bit!
I love Ohio, mostly 'cause my mom lives there. It really is a beautiful state--okay, all states are beautiful, but I'm partial to ones where I have family. Still, it's time to go. This time, we have a stretch limo to get us to Pennsylvania. Don't worry, this is a virtual trip--gas costs exactly zero. I'd rather spend money on cool vintage and thrifty stuff, anyway. Let's take a stop at http://thriftshopromantic.blogspot.com/ and admire those gorgeous roses! Then we'll link over to her "Squidoo" page, http://www.squidoo.com/thriftshopromantic for some great thrifting advice!
Here's another Pennsylvanian blog I like: http://thekrazykraftlady.blogspot.com/ Check out the cute primitives! Denise, aka NeeNee, will show us how to do some crafts and introduce us to other crafters! (BTW, I have to laugh about her nickname--that is what I called my son Nicky when he was a baby!)
Well, I think 2 states and four blogs is enough for one day, don't you? We'll spend the night at a nice Amish bed and breakfast, then head out early in the morning!

Mom2Fur,
Your link to Ohio Crochet has a comma at the end of it and it doesn't allow blogger to find the site. Just thought I would let you know! Great job BTW!
