I have to say I am one of those people who see jewelry, art, crafts or something of the like and think “I can do that” instead of purchasing the item (partially due to wanting to make everything and partially due to being fund impaired 😉 ) . It is a blessing and a curse but has definitely given me appreciation for handmade items and all the work that goes into them.
August 21st was my 34th birthday! It was also the day of the total solar eclipse in Oregon. I was pretty excited about it last year when I found out that it was happening on my birthday but then with all the hoopla and crazy amounts of people coming here I kind of lost interest…. I wish I hadn’t.
