90 Day Challenge

Happy Hannukah: Day 7 & 8

Published by under Miscellaneous

Here’s the menorah I lit each night. My mom bought it for me when I was in graduate school. I love it. I admit it. I got nothing crafty for these last two days. So I will just have to wish you a Happy Hannukah!

Frock by Friday: Anda – Tuesday

Frock by Friday: Anda – Monday

Published by under Miscellaneous

So I am following along with the Frock by Friday sew-along. This is a really easy dress we’re doing. A bit below my level. But I need an easy one in order to finish by Friday since I don’t typically have that much time during the week.
