Laughs, Life & Creativity

Something doing the rounds at the minute that gave me a laugh:   63 As a 1930s wife, I am Superior Take the test! How they came up with that I’ll never know!! ~~~ I’ve also had a chance to do some scrapping!     ~~~ Another project I have in my mind is an abstract painting, possibly with a […]

I came across 18 completed, trimmed, ready-to-be-joined blocks from a “crazy log cabin” class my sister and I […]
