Imogen’s First Month

Last Friday, a co-worker hosted a lunch time craft session. She brought all the materials and tools while we went to town with the glue dots. I discovered my creativity and we all had a great time! Look what I made 🙂 I’m looking forward to the next session…

Moonstruck Chocolate
