Let’s get something clear: I am not crafty. Everything I draw looks like a foot, and none of the lines I sketch or cut out are ever straight. They probably never will be, and I am OK with that.

But since I happen to be un-crafty, and computer illiterate, I couldn’t get that to fit in the space provided for my header. So I got frustrated, cropped half of it out, and settled for what you see above.

Arts and crafts sure are fun! Thanks Amy for helping me get my blog on!
