Posted January 31, 2016 by Ink Ladies / 15 Comments

It was just a good, mellow start to the year and I am happy with that. We hope you guys had a wonderful start to the year, as well. New on the blog… OTSP Secret Sister… Erica: I haven’t gotten my package from my sister yet, but she bought some last minute items so I’m definitely not complaining.
