  1. Carrie, well when you put it that way … ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you! I’m so glad you came out!! And I saw on Instagram that the light stand is treating you well.

    Definitely will be another one, I have to convince Candace to want to be exhausted again.

  2. This is a cool idea! It’s like a neighborhood showcase for all the crafty/artsy inspiration we find on Pinterest! ๐Ÿ˜‰
