Taking My Interior Design Skills to the Next Level


So this is what’s keeping me busy these past few weeks, other than working out the migration of my blog from free to self-hosted site (I can talk about this experience in another post), and of course being an employee by day and a mother by night.  I’m trying to learn more about interior decorating, and I am so excited about it!  I got myself included in an online Continue reading “Taking My Interior Design Skills to the Next Level”
