Previous two blog tours

A little late on posting this but after posting the October blog tour, I decided to post the tour after my submissions each month.  For those of you who would like to see the comments on my submission for the August ABS challenge on the August ABS blog tour, you now can.  Here is the September blog tour as well.  Enjoy.

ABS October blog tour

The October blog tour is out.  Please check out the kind words about my necklace as well as all of the wonderful blogs of the other entrants.

The ABS flickr page shows all of the October entries.  I like to click on the first picture and then hit "older" to see the next submission.  So many people were inspired this month.  Looking forward to November's challenge (and announcement of the winners).
