Shannon Green’s Abandoned Treasures & Mini Spinner Rack

I’ve been a little busy over the past few months including moving to NW Arkansas and adjusting to some pretty major life changes. But I know things happen for a reason and in the end it’s all good! Over the years I’ve had lots of requests to sell my creations or excess supplies and I’ve […]

Our viewers are treated […]

I Just Want To Heat Up A Frozen Pizza, For Pete’s Sake

Our oven broke a while back and after several weeks of being ovenless our property management company (who I normally refer to as our ‘slumlords’ but instead let’s just call them ABC) finally replaced it…with one that doesn’t work right either. After a week of nagging, today they finally called and said they spoke with […]
