New Dipes Posted

I finally finished the two small fitteds I’d started, took pics, edited the pics and posted them at Hyena Cart. They’re still there, but hopefully they’ll sell soon. I really love the colors in these two, they’re bright and happy. 🙂 But I think I need to change my strategy…

I must be crazy!

Why do I do these things to myself?! Why can’t I say no? Why do I like to be so busy I don’t know which was is up? I must be crazy! On Monday I agreed to design and maintain a website for Valley AEYC. Valley Association for the Education…
