Can you believe January is almost over?! Goodness. Winter usually lasts forever for me, but so far so good!
I hear my southerly neighbours are getting a nice healthy dose of snow right now – hope you are keeping warm friends. If you need any toques or mittens just holler and us Canadians’ will send them by dogsled.
With January just about behind us I thought it time to start looking forward to Valentine’s Day! And always on a mission to keeping crafting simple and cute, I though these paper plate ones would definitely come in handy.
As will my eBook on Quiet Bins – nothing quite like the magic of quiet time when you are buried in snow!
Hope you find something here that will suit you and your little ones. Have fun!
