Good Bye Summer . . . .

Let's have one last romp on the beach! I received a custom order for two little boys who both love the beach. Mama Bear says, "The ocean provides a sense of calm for my boys--even just a picture." She wants her boys to set the cards on their bed stands. This gave me the notion […]
