I had a little bottle filled with sweeties given to me at a craft retreat – the sweeties were soon gone but I could not bring myself to throw away the bottle, so I tucked it away in a corner………… knowing that one day I would find a use for it.
WOW I am thrilled to share with you that I have been invited, once again, to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central and I get to share it with you today!
