Brushstrokes in Metal

Hello! I’m having one of those days when nothing is easy. Probably something to do with baby needing to be held all of last night, which I spent on the rocking chair.

Hello, there! So, remember my last post where I (naively, no doubt) made plans to get some weeding done and then do Fluid Friday nails, while Baby ACD enjoyed an activity-filled day at daycare?
