I love Etsy. Whenever I get bored, I’m usually window shopping there. So much creativity in one place! Also a lot of really crappy stuff, but I’ll leave the commentary on those items to Regretsy (another site I spend a lot of time on when I’m bored). This week while looking [...]

I’m already working on project #3 and I have like 10 more ideas in the wings. This stuff is WAY more fun that I ever imagined.
Thanks once again to Sprite [...]
