What I’m working on: water bottle holders for the whole family!

My current mini-project is something I wish I had thought of myself: water bottle holders, to just sling over your shoulder on your way out the door, rather than juggling keys, a handful of other stuff, trying to give the dog a treat, corral my son, AND get my butt out the door while trying… Continue reading What I’m working on: water bottle holders for the whole family!

What I’m working on this week: slippers!
