Having a four day weekend gave me a lot of uninterrupted crafting time. (Side note:  I usually teach crochet and knitting on Saturdays.  While it is mighty fun to get paid to do what you love, having a one day weekend does prove stressful over the long haul.)  I really needed the extra days to […]

MC and I have been avoiding high fructose corn […]
