8500 Miles of Project Inspiration


Last Thursday we arrived on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state, after 8500 miles of driving through 30 states. It’s been a pretty amazing trip, but — surprise, surprise — I can’t wait to get back to having my own kitchen, a sewing table, and my craft supplies out of the moving boxes. And a […]
