Talk of the Town #151

I love this time of year, don’t you?  It seems like even people that normally don’t consider themselves crafty or creative start finding ideas for gifts or decor they want to make.  If the parking lot at craft stores is any indication, I think I’m right. Are you a crafty person or a baker?
