My friends and I have been getting together for a Christmas crafting night each year. Every year we have a blast and wish it happened more often. Well this year, it’s happening! We had our first Atlanta Makers Meeting last week and it was a huge success. We organized an email list of ladies who… Continue reading First Atlanta Makers Meeting
One of my biggest weaknesses when it comes to buying clothes I don’t need are sweatshirts! I LOVE a cozy sweatshirt.

I… Continue reading Errybody Loves a Rope Bowl – dying tutorial
