Love is in the Air

For those who craft, we have to get things done ahead of the holiday so they can be given or sold to someone to use for the holiday. So I’ve been busy working on Valentine cards (even though one has the Christmas reindeer) with a kit I received from Lyssa at Song of My HeartContinue reading “Love is in the Air”

Encouraging Words

Recently there has been much change in my professional world. Not just my world, but many of my friends and co-workers as well. I’ve found myself repeating over and over many of the phrases on these cards or hearing them said to me.
