It’s Cold and also: I’m Learning Magic Loop

Hello friends! I hope you are all doing well. I'm writing here on a Saturday night. I am, as usual, being overly ambitious about the amount of projects I can finish before the new year, so I've compiled all the holiday-related kits I haven't worked through yet to see how much I can get done… Continue reading It’s Cold and also: I’m Learning Magic Loop
