Hi friends
Originally I was going to post the July guest designer today, but I am out of town and won't be able to choose the new guest until I return.  I will make the announcement on Saturday, June 18th.  I appreciate your patience.

I peeked at the entries and you all are so talented!  This is going to be a tough decision!!  I LOVE looking at your fantastic creations every month.  It's always a treat for me :)

The price of a bottle of Coca-Cola stayed at a nickel for over 70 years. As a result, vending machines only took nickels, and before raising prices to a dime the president of the company asked President Eisenhower to mint 7.5 cent coins to keep the increase reasonable.
