So I went to the doctor for my 3 month diabetes check up.  You might remember this post where I admitted to a 9.1 A1C level.  Dude.  That’s high – like wayyyy too high.  My goal is 6.5 with my current goal of just getting it to 7.    As of today – 7.2!  That’s almost

Little Bunny Bag

After making Kacie that adorable Bunny Makeup Bag, I decided to make her a matching zipper bag to hold her makeup brushes. She had them in a ziploc bag and we’ll, we can do better than that 😉 I used the bunny print on the outside and this yummy gold stripe for the interior. I wish
