Washi-lined Envelopes, Paper Straws, and Resignation

Two weeks into my corporate freedom, I’m able to focus more on crafting and doing the projects I have long been planning for. Yes!

Hello fellow craft lovers! :) I will be joining the 10a Alabama Fair this coming Sunday, July 21. As always, I can’t wait to reunite with my Alabama family.

Skateboarding x Crafts

So, what would a crafter do with a skateboard? Turn it into a Hey Kessy mini cruiser, of course! Lately, I’ve been thinking about how indoorsperson I’ve become. Totally opposite of my college lifestyle. I don’t go out the house unless I have work, meetings, and sometimes, meet-ups with friends. It also doesn’t help that […]
