October was a blur... Lots of sets, but missed blogging about them!



I have been consumed with activities both in the studio and outside, and as a result my normal blog postings suffered.
I am currently on the road and thought I would take a few moments to catch up while enjoying my breakfast at the hotel.

All the following sets were created and sold within the month of October.
