A wife and mom, a worker bee, a churchwoman, a reader, and a crafter. What more is there to know? :)

Hardworking cheer?

Decor is not my strong suit. It’s definitely not something you’ll find much of on this blog. And I don’t suppose decor would normally be considered hardworking, either. But I guess I’ll go out on a limb and call this Christmas wreath a Hardworking project and put it here anyway. […]
