About Me

Updated 8/4/18:

I have cancelled my crafty swaps. I don't think I can handle them yet due to pain. I hope everyone understands.

Updated 8/1/18:

I am back. I am taking it slow. I hope you understand.

Updated 7/10/18:


Due to severe pain in my left hand and arm I am taking a break during July. I have rested it for 4 days and it is doing better than before but it still hurts. I hope to return to normal on August 1st. I hope you understand. Any prayers would be appreciated.

I plan to change the dates on my swaps from July to August. I won't be announcing any swaps for the rest of the month. I also won't be posting anything that I have received. I hope you understand. It hurts just to type this message.
