I am a work-at-home mum to two children, and I've been married to my very busy, dear hubby for more than 18 years.
We share our home with a mini-lop bunny named Scooter, two pet rats named Hazelnut & Pistachio, and a "labradorable" black lab mix named Plinker.
My heart belongs to Christ. When I get the time to craft, I like to bless and encourage people through my creations.
In just a few more days, my kiddos will be heading back to school. It's kind of bittersweet to see the summer end, but it's also exciting to see the kids embark on a new year of learning. This was my mindset when making my sample for this week's Crafty Secrets challenge - ABCs & 123s.
My dad blesses me with all kinds of lovely vintage goodies - both decorative & functional, and one of his great finds was a huge set of old primer flash cards. I used one as the basis for this wall hanging:
