Here's the Birthday presents I got that are NOT art supplies, in no particular order. I mean, the biggest one is last because I don't want it to negate the other awesome presents, which I love, but otherwise no order. From dad, window prisms! I have one in the bedroom, but now I can hang … Continue reading Birthday Presents I Adore

Today is Wednesday, and I'm meal prepping for Thanksgiving. I know a lot of people aren't able to celebrate, but we have an odd situation in our households...
