We’re into September–heading into my favorite part of the year! I’ve got my early autumn decorations up (I put them up shortly after Lughnasadh)–the autumn leaves, early harvest decorations.

I have an incredibly well stocked office and am constantly trying to rationalize the use for whatever new cool gadget, Post-It note, binder, folder that comes along. What’s your ‘crack’ store? Where do you just want to go crazy? And […]
