More teasers before the great unveiling, hopefully within 3 weeks!
A mere reflection of things to come…
And the tricky art of color selection… Which one was chosen (if any)?… Continue reading
How long has it been since I’ve blogged? Weeks and weeks! Since December 7th, to be exact—over a month! In the past 10 years I don’t think I’ve ever gone a whole month without blogging! But life got really, really insanely busy.
I have moved back to Atlanta—talk about a time- and task-intensive process!
I’m still utterly depressed about returning… Continue reading
