It’s not just glass …

So, I’ve spent the last two days taking photos and sitting at the computer, uploading and entering data … not really my idea of fun.  The good news – my etsy shop more than doubled in inventory … the bad news – I think my arse is permanently fused to this seat. Just kidding – I …

This week’s projects … AKA Magnet Madness
