SamSketches: A 2015 Calendar

Now Available It was last year around this time, that I came up with a Christmas gift idea for my older sister, Sylvia.  After a fun filled evening (as usual) with her in which we joked about how horrible she is with remembering dates, I decided to create for her a personalized calendar to supply herContinue reading “SamSketches: A 2015 Calendar”
