One thing I love about Layla is that we just get each other. She is my mini-me which is awesome, but I’ll admit it can be frustrating at times. We both love doing crafty things, and she naturally assumes any image with some sort of pattern is fabric. It’s pretty common for me to be […]

    Oh my goodness, Meredith! This is amazing! I bet Layla feels so loved to have a mommy-made backpack with so many special touches. Might have to get some homeschooling info from you one of these days. I’ve been considering it but don’t even know where to start!ReplyCancel
