A Challenge + Some Updates

I've been itching to share some things I've been making lately, but this is the first chance I've got to take some time to jump on the 'ol blog and actually share. And oh boy, do I have a lot. :) I'll break it into a couple posts over this weekend. I love weekends back in Wisconsin- so much time to relax and catch up on life. Without further ado, I begin...
