Episode 47: Feelin' the Love

The Christmas holiday came and went without the completion of a few gifts that I'd hoped to give, but the holiday was more enjoyable without the pressure of rushing to finish. Join me to hear how the time off from work after Christmas, and getting some awesome tools for my craft room, provided the motivation to jump right in to something new and make sure I completed at least one project that had been waiting patiently to be finished.
