  1. I’m totally in! Do you have any buttons to share on a blog? Is it ok if I use the photos in this blog post?
    I’m not sure what I want to make yet, but I’m going to start by spreading the news.

    • Ohh yay! So glad you are in, Lisa! I don’t have a button sadly! I guess I should get on that, right?! Absolutely use anything and everything on the HK site, and I’ll put together a button soon. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm!
