2020 has been quite the year so far. Despite the strange occurrences and unprecedented times, I have to admit, it hasn’t all been bad. I imagine most people have found ways to enjoy life at a slower pace, like I have. My family has developed quite the love affair with the wildlife that visits our yard, especially the adorable squirrels we see scampering around. The inspiration for this craft came easily with such fun subject matter!
