    our day…

    Today was a good day (minus hubby having to work). I made this… and this… and this reversible tote using this tutorial… and this double ruffle cash envelope system wristlet using this tutorial… We decided to head to the park and have a quick impromptu picnic before the rain and cold weather blew in… Then Big E and I made apple bars!
