Budget Beach Babeness

I am one of those people who is somehow never prepared for summer. It's almost as if I have seasonal amnesia and I totally forget that after spring comes a three month period of heat, humidity, sunburns, sweating, and beach.

Personal Motivational Embroidery Challenge

Lately I've been in a bit of a craft slump so I decided to try to motivate myself with a simple excersize.
