Still Here, but not making Crowns

The Summer FLEW by! 

I finished out the School Year as a 5th grade teacher, and was asked to stay on to teach during the Summer School Session.  What motivated me to actually do it was, my school needed a STEM teacher for the summer.  STEM is totally my thing.   The summer program went well, and I actually ended up teaching 2 classes simultaneously.  It was rather hectic, but good.

Crown Selection Change

This is important:  I need to take some crowns out of the inventory line-up for a little bit.  Additionally, I need to remove the custom engraving options (Name + date stuff).
