Aloha, all! I'm 75% moved into my own home after having been away for 6 months. Unfortunately, the 25% not unpacked and put away is what's in my Craft Room! I decided to do that by design so that our household would be back into commission and everyone would be ready for daily activities before I started in on my crafts. Yes, my crafts are … [Read more...] about Getting Ready for Easter!
