It’s not a scene from Dexter. It’s a roll.

In my last post I made a note about how much fun I was having making things for the holiday. I also made a note of how if it looks like a scene from “Dexter”, it was even more hilariously fun for me. Of course, this got people asking what I was making, and if […]
