This post was never published when it was supposed to be, back in October. I suppose I ran out of time? I felt it was worth sharing, something I will always reflect back on when I hear the number ’20-20′. It’s funny how at the beginning of lockdown, way back in March, I had all the time in the world. But I soon found … Read More Crafting phenomenon of 2020

Followed by The Hills … Read More Winter is Coming..
