Tiptoe Craft Desk Update.

The craft corner is perhaps the most used area of the house, certainly by the girls that is. If we had to get rid of every single toy, as long as the supply cupboard was well stocked, I’m not sure Nancy and Eula would be all that concerned, it’s a very industrious corner, a constant…

How to extend your home with style, for less than you might think.
