Wednesday Weekly #147

Happy Hallowe’en! I hope you all have fun tonight, be it trick or treating with kiddos or drinking old fashions with friends! I will be shamelessly going door to door with my 10 month old niece, which is really just an excuse for me to get candy. I am also looking forward to moving into my new office space this week and will be sure to get a blog post detailing the move and the new set-up for you all! You can follow along on instagram stories, too. I can’t wait to show you my new sewing space!
