So over the last year or so I’ve done a lot of projects that didn’t seem worth an entire post here. Little things around the house or clothing remakes or whatever which just sit in my “To Post” folder for month after month after month as I fail to think of a way to incorporate them here.

Surprisingly enough I didn’t think of a way to do it so today I thought I’d just make a project dump post… lazy for the win!

Here’s a really really really old photo of Lottie to distract you though!
