Pregnancy is one of the worst yet most exciting waiting games ever. To fill in my time I’m still sewing for my little girl to come still. Pink, pink, and more pink anyone? I’m really loving these happy cloud and rain drop pillows backed with a soft cream chenille. My son, Jacob, actually liked […]
I’m super duper excited to tell you that…
