Prickly Plushies

I’ve been doing really well this year in keeping my resolution to use more of my existing craft supplies, and not to buy too much new stuff. However, I did cave and buy a few new sets from the Clearly Besotted sale last week, and I couldn’t wait to colour up these adorable cacti! (TheContinue reading “Prickly Plushies”
