the weekend flew by. the kid said it was the best ever, so that’s a win. no photos of it, but i actually even cleaned some. shocking. we hung out with our friends which was so good for the soul. lots of laughs over silly jokes. good food, good drink, kids old enough to amuse […]
in my family i am known as the christmas elf, so it’s probably no surprise that i am already starting to think about the holidays. since falling down the crafty rabbit hole, i have focused on making handmade gifts, and décor, and so that means i tend to start early. several years ago, after falling […]
