5 out of 4 Fleece Pullover Tour

I am a big baby when it comes to cold which is laughable since I live in California. But our temperatures do get lows of teens and with daytime highs being in between the 30s-40s plus the crazy 60-70 mph winds we get. If you know anything about desert seasons, they are harshly drastic and…

12 Days of 1 Hour Projects: Handcrafted By RED

Welcome back. Sorry I had to skip yesterday. I was stuck hanging on to my bed trying to be human. Not so easy, but I am thankful that the husband was home to sort of wrangle the kids. I’m still feeling less than human, but pushing through it. So tomorrow you can expect 2 separate…
