As you know, I'm travelling across the blogosphere for Blog Blast for Peace today.
Not only that, I'm in the thick of NaNoWriMo.
So on Tuesday I mentioned to my friend Tracy at work that I hoped I'd be able to put together my Peace Globe the way I was hoping to, because I also had a choir rehearsal just to make things interesting.
Tracy, being the marvellous friend that she is, offered to make me a back-up Peace Globe in case I ran into trouble with my own. This is the one she made for me - I love it!
