Apple Anniversary Bowl

A year ago I was bridesmaid for one of my close friends. They got married on an old cider farm in Somerset, and were coming out to California for a visit for their one year Anniversary. I was looking for something nice for a gift, and came across a no longer available item on Etsy. […]

Nerd Crafts: Erythrocyte (Red Blood Cell) Earrings

I know. I disappeared into an abyss. (Otherwise known as having two lots of visitors, resuming school, and general life.)
