I cannot believe it has been so long since I last posted. Things have been slightly crazy around here. We received our non-temporary storage shipment last week and I had so much fun going through things we haven't seen in 9 years.

This will go until I complete these with the 5th weeks of months and to finish off a week when another project is completed for working on small items such as the Family and Around the World Ornaments.
I also have several WIPs lined up to then move into the rotation and a couple of kitted up projects; believe me I won't run out of things to
