Crochet maniac

I’ve been crocheting like mad. And I mean in the mad-insane kind of way. I’ve come up with three new designs for bustles, both of them in the superhero style. I decided to come up with a new style for Captain America, Wonder Woman, and Harley Quinn tie on skirts for ladies, and I’m thinking […]

The Mindful Thing About Doctor Strange- part 2

Phew. I said a ton in my last post. 1,500 words, wow. Let’s try to make this post a little shorter, shall we? I’ll just cut to the chase, as they do in Hollywood… Remember in the movie when the Ancient One told Stephen Strange that he was a man looking at the world through […]

The Coolest Mindful Thing About Doctor Strange
