I’m trying out a new thing here. I read so many great posts on craft or industry during the week, and then invariably I want to go back to one and re-read a few days later … only to discover I can’t for the life of remember who wrote it. I follow a lot A LOT of blogs, so I felt like I was constantly going on a paper(less) chase. I needed a solution.
VOILA! It’s a round-up of posts I thought were interesting and helpful from the past week. Hopefully you think it’s helpful too! I may or may not make this a regular feature. Only time will tell.
