I kinda fell off the blogging wagon for a while there. I’m still not completely back on it — I feel more like I’m being drug behind that wagon right now! I’m really hoping August is a bit slower month for me, but I can already tell that the first half of it won’t be. […]

How did you do with last week’s challenge? Me, I got one letter done, and I don’t have a long name! I do tend to get carried away sometimes, tho! I’m not skipping this week’s challenge, but I am making it super easy, since it’s what I need to do: Go back and work on […]
