  1. I do workshops and classes for Early Childhood folks for a living (sort of). The best reward is when someone tells me “I tried it and it works”. Thank You!

    You’re welcome, but really — Thank YOU. This has become a regular fall craft, for sure!

Including her very own wonderful homedaycare provider.
