5 Years.


Five years ago, I sold my first WIP Kit.  FIVE YEARS.  To every person who has read this blog, bought a kit, left a comment, stalked or lurked, THANK YOU--from the bottom of my heart.  I am truly humbled.

Going to do a few fun give aways today.  Leave a comment and/or email address, and you could be a lucky winner!  Fun kits will be involved, I promise.  :)

Congrats Trish! I remember you're first kit and I'll tell you my favorite was the one with your recipes. Complete with pictures. I STILL have them and refer to them often.
