In very unsurprising news, moving across the country is not for the faint of heart, so I have learned.  I’ve been having been dreaming of tex-mex and long days at the lake my sisters, but my reality has been moving boxes and logistics all the live long day!  My craft supplies may be packed, but luckily Sarah is with us today sharing a super easy ceramic DIY that can take one a myriad of uses.  I actually have a little dish that looks just like this one by the sink in our bathroom to hold my jewelry while I’m showering.  Keep …
