Breathe….

Let me just say that trying to run a business that has quickly become full-time while having another full-time job during the day is hard.

But this is going to be a super busy week with Stamp Club and three workshops still to go! (Not that I’m complaining!) So needless to say not a lot to show you. I will hopefully have some cards to show you from my card class last night when I get them uploaded. In the meantime, let me show
