Hello everyone!!!  Another episode here…it’s a long one and it includes a bunch of things off my dish, some new projects on my dish, a small give away opportunity, pin loom class recap, Let’s go Retro! and a quick puppet at the end.  I had hoped to get it up before the holiday weekend, but alas, I recorded on a different computer and then didn’t have a flash drive with enough space on it to transfer the file!  Thankfully, Dana to the rescue today and here we are!!!  The good news about that is that I actually DID get show notes done….didn’t think it was going to happen 🙂 Enjoy!!!

**small warning**  My apologies  –  the sound quality on this one is not fantastic and there are a couple of places that my laughter and excitement get quite loud….please be aware of this especially if you are using headphones or ear buds!  sorry!!!
