Making (easy) gift-wrapping magic with washi tape (c/o Brit + Co!).


On the latest episode of our new Heritage Radio show, we had so much to jabber about that we didn't even have time for a special guest. So what was so important that we urgently needed to address? Anxiety...and preserved foods and washi tape. We have a lot of all of those things, all right? Tune in here—and feel free to catch up on past eps while you're at it.
