If I had a nickel for every painting or picture I’ve made to go in my son’s room, I’d have enough nickels to go to the craft store and buy supplies to make more. And that’s probably what I would do. I can’t stay away. As it stands, I have way too many things to […]

I’m an aunt again! I now have a third precious niece, born to my sister and brother-in-law on January 9. I crocheted a quick hat on the car ride to visit the new baby in Houston. I love it and hope she does too! I told you I was on a crochet kick.
