Trying to get rid of plastic holders, shoeboxes etc., will be a big chore, but one step at a time!!! Lots to do and lots of product needed!!! HELP :)))


  119. Kristie Maynard

    Spring craft projects? I will probably make some Easter baskets for my kids, even though they are 18 & 21 now. Who doesn’t like a little Easter treat. Probably make them from cardstock and embellish them. Also will be making a few Easter cards.
    Can’t wait for spring!!!
