This past month has been a roller coaster – way too many lows, but quite a bit of highs too. Fortunately, I have a reward comng in the form of nearly two months off from working weekends. This means that I will be able to catch up on the 125,364,759,000 craft projects that I’ve started but never finished, to binge watch more than a little TV, and generally to become an air condition seeking hermit.
Luckily, I have some great things to share with you in the coming weeks, so I’ll be more than occupied. Let’s start with the fabulousness that Hella Handmade Creations’ makers have for us this month!
