the person behind the screen

Whenever I read a blog, I kinda like knowing a little bit about the person behind the screen. I realize I’ve been wonderfully vague here, even on my ‘about’ page.

Just a quick post this morning to share something I’ve been working on… Meet the oversized book wreath! (And please excuse the phone picture that was snapped in a hurry!)
