A Very Voolenvine Vlogmas 2016!

9:33:00 AM


It's December, and you know what that means ... It's also Vlogmas!

Yep. Every day during the month of December, I'll be uploading a new vlog episode.

I look forward to sharing, with you, all my behind-the-scenes and creative happenings during the holiday season. I hope you'll enjoy!

I created a YouTube playlist so you can easily keep up.

Please know, I won't be posting regular show notes for these installments, but I will try to post important tidbits of interest here. You can also join the Yarngasm Ravelry group to chat about my Vlogmas episodes.

Thank you so much for watching!
