Craft Friday

It's over. All done.  Black Friday came and went.  I survived.  Did I shop on Black Friday?  Yes...but only to go to Clark's Pet Supply, a locally owned business, because my mom was out of cat food.  I am not one of those people who feels the need to start my holiday shopping the day after Thanksgiving…
