Everyday Adventures, Projects

One of my goals this year is to make more videos–and maybe actually be in them (not just my hands)! So I figured I’d get the first one out of the way to show off my Gauched-Up Planner Pad that I made in part to keep me sane this year and in part as my February Newsletter project for The Dirt.

I have a couple of sets up in my Etsy shop just perfect for Valentine’s crafting.
