I made an Etsy account sometime last year but I forgot about it (gasp !) until recently ! As I have a wee few things that I made recently I thought I might just open a shop on Etsy and see how it goes. So I did it ! Currently I only have 3 listings […]
30-March-2013 Today I finished a project I’ve been working on for 9 months ! I spy something beginning with P..
