Projects

I once read that unfinished projects can be a major energy drain — and I believe it! As excited as I feel about my various projects, I often feel like my “To Do” list is absolutely endless and that can’t put a dent in it since I’m constantly adding new inspirations.

In an effort to prioritize and focus my creative endeavors, I’m testing out a new digital organization system and will share monthly project lists to keep myself on track. This Projects page will serve as a master repository for ALL my projects.
