Viva Summer!

Welcome June. I take a deep long breath as I write this. May was one hell of a month – craft festivals, birthdays, school events all clubbed together and squeezing me so tight that I could barely breathe, let alone blog about them. I’d like to move on, but first let me quickly tell you about …
