Goals for 2022

It’s time for the annual round-up of last year’s goals!

I’ve had a month to figure out what worked last year, what was messy, and what doesn’t quite fit.

The book made for my youngest was a cute coloring book on how dinosaurs get ready for the winter holidays. I hope you enjoy a little prehistoric holiday cheer with these coloring pages! 🙂

I hope you have a safe and happy New Year! I’ll see you on February 1st :D
