Make it Friday – Catching Up


Oh heeeeyyyyyyy! It’s been AGES since we’ve seen each other here on the bloggy. And it’s suddenly May now, what.

So you veteran readers know that I collect chronic health conditions as a side hobby. Well unfortunately they ALL flared up at once in April. It was about as fun as getting three simultaneous root canals. But I made it and things are slowly getting back to normal and I am ready to re-immerse myself in all things crafts.

I hope you are too because I found some beautiful DIY ideas to inspire your weekend!
