Life she is a changin’…..

Know how you feel when you’ve made a change in your life that seems a bit scary and like a refreshing breath of fresh air – at the same time? That is how I feel this week. Why? Well, most of you know that in addition to my designing I’ve been working two part-time jobs, […]
