Book Review: Stylish Remakes

I’m here today with a book review courtesy of Tuttle Publishing.  They have provided me with the book in exchange for this review, but the opinions are all my own.  This post also contains affiliate links.

Friday Favorites–Space Crafts

All this talk of the Perseid meteor shower last night got me thinking about the final frontier out there.  Did you see it?  It would have been a great night for it, but they lost me at “predawn.”  The only thing that happens for me predawn is preawake.  But I’ve always had a little fascination…

Remember last year when I lost my mind and agreed to do my first craft show with only 12 days to prepare?  You can read all about it here.  Well, I think it was a little like having a baby.  The moment it was over I thought “Whew, that was hard.  I don’t think I…
