Fighting Winter with Color and Crafting

Posted by mrssmythe on March 13, 2017 in Art, Baking, Crafting, Garden, Seasons, Week in Review |

Snow, snow, snow. That’s all anyone was talking about today. Snow last week, and snow on the way. This in addition to frigid temperatures and incredible winds.
