I’m on a little vacation at the beach. It’s my happy place. I like to sit on the beach, watch the waves, read a good book and walk the shoreline looking for shells.

I have a little spot in my house....that is mine....all mine....and it’s set up to be my crafting spot. I could call it a “Crafting Cave”....but it’s not in a basement, so it not dark and cave like. In fact it’s actually quite bright (at least it is when it’s sunny outside and not raining!).… Continue reading This Little Piggy…..Says Thank You!
