Stow and Tell U twigs before

At Stow & Tell U, Amy used twigs from her yard to craft some neat things during the Christmas holidays.  She had so much fun then, she decided there was no reason she couldn’t have more fun with twigs for Valentine’s Days.  After all, there were plenty of twigs just sitting in the woodpile, waiting to be used for kindling.
