It’s a McGree Miracle!!!

Last night, they all sat together in the same room and didn’t kill each other. It’s a miracle!!! I think I told you that Mitzie pretty much hates the bigContinue reading “It’s a McGree Miracle!!!”

Week 5 Part 3: Changing the World One Marking Pen at a Time–While Making Your Projects Look Awesome!

Good Morning. I am sick with a cold and feeling sorry for myself. A rotten little cold-troll latched on to me while I was editing the Marcy-Jacket update and I haven’t been able to shake it yet.

The second half of our second date

Blogger’s Remorse Have you ever had the experience of thinking something looked awesome in person and when you saw a picture of it later, you said, “Hmmmmmmmm…that didn’t turn out like I expected.” This happened to me with our last post.
