I don't have some crazy story about how I spent all night making valentines. I actually planned ahead for these and my daughter got to help m
I decided this year I was going to make my kids' valentines - you know, the ones they have to bring to school and give to every kid in the class. I picked up most of the supplies a couple days ago and was looking forward to a weekend of crafting with
A couple posts back I talked about how I had made myself a new purse with some fabric that I had tie-dyed. I love the idea of the purse, the general pattern, but I thought it was too big and bulky for my every day needs. Basically, I just wasn't in l
