This week we have a wonderful sponsor, Laurie, from Doodle PantryHere are a few words to re-introduce you to Laurie

"Hello, my name is Laurie.   I'm just a regular Joe crafter. While trying to find digital images that met my own crafting needs, I decided to draw some of my own, as I had so many unique (weird!) ideas that I just couldn't locate elsewhere. I sincerely hope something I've done inspires you to go create something to bring a smile to someone else and hope you enjoy creating to your hearts content with some of my doodles."
