Upcoming Events and Changes

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted…. It’s been a busy summer with lots of fun summer classes and programs. Plus my family and I are days to maybe a couple of weeks away from welcoming the newest littlest member of our family, another little boy!! So, if I continue to be off-radar for another month, please know that I’ll be back the beginning of Oct. with a bunch of fun and new blogs about paper and crafting and having fun with three kids! Thanks for your patience!
