the catch up game & don’t worry about a thing.

…every little thing is gonna be alright. (Bob Marley, anyone?) Since I went on a mini vacation this week, I have a lot to catch up on for the #31DBBB challenge. However, before I move on to the next steps in that challenge, I think I may need to soften any concerns that might haveContinue Reading

A daily dose of sugar was pretty quiet last week. I was hard at work on the redesign of bellafaith design [my graphic & web design business], so every available minute went directly into it.
