An Awfully Snazzy Jumper

It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post (I have been VERY busy at school), but trust me a lot of making has been done so a LOT of blog posts are going to be published in the coming weeks – I have a lot to catch up on! So this jumper. I… Continue reading An Awfully Snazzy Jumper

I found her about two days ago now, and I’ve committed myself to watching every single video that she has posted, and… Continue reading A (Not Very Quick) Hello
