Summer Sasha Trousers : : Jeanne T-shirt : : #2018 MakeNine

Hallo. Hallo. Popping in quickly…erm, we’ll see how wordy I end up being today; I may have to edit that statement…with another #2018MakeNine. Okay…for me summer is all about the dress.

Happy New Year Every Buddy! 2018 may be done and dusted but we’re turning back the clock Chez A Colourful Canvas. But. Quickly.

I’m embarrassed to admit this, but it was only just this week…duh…that I discovered I have access to all the Google fonts. All the fonts you guys! I’ve had this theme for over two years…
