Ok, maybe some of you have been wondering why our font has turned blue today.  Or our Facebook Page's profile picture has turned blue.

Naurally, we have a very blue giveaway to match:

It's all fair game, as long as it's blue!   I will post a winner on Monday April 4th.

    As with your song, blue tends to be associated with sadness in the music industry…
    To me, the color blue is like the Bluebird
    of Happiness and full of hope! Two of my
    best friends work closely with autistic children
    and I respect and admire them!
    Many thanks, Cindi

    I was shocked to hear that one out of every 120 babies will develop autism by the age of 2 1/2 years. We need to become aware, find the causes, and develop a cure for autism.

    The color blue always reminds me of the summer sky and the deep colors of the ocean. It is also calming and brings about good memories, which makes it the right color for autism awareness.

  8. Leanne

    My sister in law works with children that have autism so thank you for making us aware of these special angels on earth. I love the color blue it can work for any season and emotes gret emotions depending on the color blue it is!

  9. Leanne Seed

    My sister in law works with children with autism, this is a wonderful reminder thank you. Blue is my favorite color depending on the shade it can evoke so many diffrent feelings and work for all the seasons.

    I love the denim quilts I make with blue, but the blue that’s on my mind right now is the blue of the ocean in Hawaii I’m going to see in about a month.

    Blue makes me think of making ocean themed cards. They’d be lovely embellished with these beautiful ribbons.
    I didn’t know that April is Autism Awareness Month… thanks for bringing it to my attention!

    I like blue because it is a very calming color, I painted my craft room blue for this reason.
