Homemade Chocolate Espresso Wood Stain

Oh boy, has it been a week.  My computer died.  I mean, take it out in the back yard and bury it died.  Thank goodness my back-up hard drive mostly did it’s job.  All the files are there, but they look like they were filed by a drunk person.  Lots of duplicates, weird names and…

Clear Shelf Liner to Transfer Vinyl

Since January has been a sprint for me, I haven’t even had a chance to tell you about my amazing Christmas present.  It doesn’t even have a home in my craft room yet, but you better believe I’ve already taken it for a spin or two. My husband has watched me struggle with projects that…
