Party last week and filed it away … Continue reading
I DID IT!
I actually submitted not one but four pieces to Celebrate 365 (my amazing husband was the driving force behind this because I would not submitted anything). I submitted four ornaments (a snowman, a tree, a star, and an angel) with the explanation of the donation to charity and a description of each piece. I guess … Continue reading

The pictures aren’t the best I took them with my cell phone – I am going to do everything at once tomorrow. Star Ornament – 50% goes to The Trevor Project. The ornament is … Continue reading
Works in Progress (Quick Post)
