Year End Review

A Look back on 2019

In the holiday craziness it is easy to think only on the projects that didn’t make the list or weren’t finished.  While I may enjoy the challenge (trust me, it usually is some sort of challenge), my loved ones don’t enjoy being in second place to projects during the holiday crafting season. Besides, the year isn’t only about the holidays… it is about the WHOLE year.  All the challenges, the smiles, the hugs and maybe even the tears. Please join me as I take a look back.
