January Scrap Happy Day

I’ve always enjoyed playing with scraps, but have been making a concerted effort to use up my stash and my scraps since the Pandemic began. I have purchased some fabric in person when storefronts finally re-opened, but find shopping on line to be an imperfect solution when the stores are closed. These past two weeksContinue reading “January Scrap Happy Day”

September DrEAMi Projects

This has been such a fun month with so many distracting squirrels chasing me around. I think it might have something to do with having time on my hands while working for Elections Canada at the advance polls and just sitting and waiting for people to come and vote! 😉 It all started when IContinue reading “September DrEAMi Projects”
