Introduction to Adulting with Wine and Cats

Hello World! My pseudonym / nom de plume / pen name, is Pandora Cray: Pandora because I am a strong independent woman whose life is chaos (which is almost entirely my own fault), and Cray because my life is crazy and so am I.

But in school you learn the whitewashed version of the story, so … Continue reading COVID-19 in the history books

Dresses, Dressers and Dressing (Stuffing)

Dresses So, I've recently become rather  involved in my new sewing hobby (she said wearing self-made Dino-ween pajama pants WITH POCKETS). Dino-ween flannel fabric composed of four different kinds of dinosaurs in Halloween costumes, a cat in a dino costume, and the phrase "Happy Dino-ween!" And JoAnn's had a sale on sewing patterns.
