Hello again! I know that it has been a little while, and to be honest if you look at the past few posts I’ve written I’m pretty sure they have all started out with “it’s been a while…” or “it’s been a little quiet around here lately…” but, I am planning to change that! 🙂 I have a lot of fun ideas in the works for new fresh patterns, and project inspiration posts! My new goal is to post three times per week with a pattern round-up on Mondays, project or pattern on Wednesdays, and a project inspiration post on Fridays so please stay tuned!! [Read more…]

I made a couple of them for drawer organizers because lord knows my drawers organizing.
