Bookpage Garland Tutorial

My apologies, readers, but this tutorial is going to require a great deal of imagination on your part. Why? Because this is what is between me and my supplies… All manner of junk, but all for a good cause. We are in the midst of packing up our home and have done serious amounts of […]

I Lived to Tell the Tale

Heavens to Betsy. I hate that I went MIA from blogland for so long, but it has been quite a week-and-a-half. Just as we were packing ourselves up to go down to H-Town for Thanksmas with the fam, I got slammed with the flu. The good news is that I realized it before I got down […]
