For the lore, we need to go back a decade to the year 2011. I was a senior in high school, and I was making a lot of friendship bracelets by knotting embroidery floss. Somehow I got the idea to sell the bracelets for a few dollars each and to usses that money to donate … Continue reading A Somewhat New Venture
Happy 2021 everyone! I hope everyone's first days of the year have been promising for what is to come.
