Cross Stitching for Christmas

Every year around the holidays I always seem to make note of endless ideas for Christmas-themed cross stitching.  There are so many great ideas out there, and I always wish I had a little bit more time to try a couple before the season is over.  And every year I find I’m simply too busy with […]

I’ve had the opportunity to work from home every once in a while now for well over a year – probably going on two years at this point.  I’m lucky to have a manager that believes in providing the best possible working environment, and if that means allowing an employee some time to work on […]
