There’s always 2013…

I’m heartbroken about the Super Bowl. I love the Patriots, therefore by default I hate the Giants. I think that rivalry has gotten bigger than the Indy-New England rivalry (since you know, Peyton is a non factor at this point

I completed another repair and upcycle of a vintage suede women’s jacket. It was missing many of its original leather-covered buttons, and those that remained were quite damaged. In addition, the jacket had belt loops but no belt. I used
