    I am a 73 yr old hyper/ocd crafter
    that’s always looking..I am in LOVE with every stinkin’ cute one of these. Here it is Sept and I’m seriously wanting to get set up but alas we’ve had an attic fire and working on repair/upgrade. No crafts?. Thanks for the post and I’m going to try to do that Instagram thing…

    1. Hani says:

      Wow, you are such an inspiration. I stopped crafting a few years back when I had babies. They needed me more and now that I am restarting and just working on creating my first ever crafts room you made me so excited for this journey. 🙂 I am sorry for your fire damages but I am glad you and your family are safe! Goodluck with the upgrade and hope you stay in touch! I am social on instagram.
