Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    The crocheted tubes are amazing. I wonder if they are made with a simple circular loom they used to sell when I was young (back in the 1950’s). The Elvis cover artist has a very nice voice.

    Hi Joy,not sure what is happeneing at my end and wondering if you or any others have a clue? I cannot join in your link ups any more. The button is not available to click on. also I only see the top 3 images that are linked up. I have refreshed my page, accepted cookies and changed my safety listing for this site with no success. This has been happening to me for weeks now, and suggestions please

      Hi Lee,
      I’m so sorry you’ve been having issues connecting. I spoke with my techie hubby and he said that since you’ve gone through the first line suggestions, to try accessing our site from different browsers to see if that helps. Also, if all else fails and you can’t get linked up in a given week, if you let me know and send me your links, I will upload them for you. xoxo 🙂
