Oakland Athletics Manicure 2016 Edition

If you’ve been following me for a few years, you’ve seen I’ve done an Oakland Athletics themed manicure for my first game every season.  This year’s first game manicure has come later than the others considering I’ve been unemployed.  However, thanks to Lorenza’s ticket deal booklets and Free Parking Tuesday, I went to my first game last night for the 2016 season!

Handmade Gifts with Love

Having found myself recently unemployed, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands.  So I’ve been putting those hands to work producing more handmade gifts for friends in exchange for both money and thanks.  Many have involved my trusty Cricut but others are more, well, hands-on like a small commissioned cross-stitch ornament I’ll be working on this week.  I’d be happy to put these hands to work on your custom, commissioned gifts as well!
