The Colorful Words of Lisa Bogart

It really is funny how we met people in this Internet age. I guess the equivalent of how I met Lisa would be walking into a Hoedown in a town you’ve never been to before after a long ride on your horse where you fell asleep and the horse picked the destination. Howdy, Lisa! Howdy, Lisa! So how did I meet her? Completely by chance after doing a google search for designers! But Lisa isn’t a designer… after striking up a Ravelry conversation, low and behold I discovered she’s an author! And not only an author, a generous soul who’s offering two of her titles as a prize for our Hoedown Showdown event. Please join me saying “howdy” to Lisa! …
