Web Weekend #11

Whew. It’s been another rough one. I’m gearing up for my Grand Re-Opening on Tuesday so I’ve been crazy busy. I’m actually going to open in a few stages. This week, I’ll be debuting jewelry.
I’m still at 363 this week. Weirddd.

Remember you can follow me on Pinterest for nearly-daily flailing and excitement. Now let’s get to the links!
