Hi and thanks for checking out my crafting blog. While it will primarily be dedicated to paper crafting, particularly card making, I do love a variety of crafts. So you never know what might show up here. Hopefully you can pop by often to see what this nerdy girl is currently crafting.
House Mouse Halloween (Projects 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24)
