March in Review

March is officially over {I know, I’m a few days late}. For us here in Greenville, last month was such a tease. There would be 70 degree days followed by 30-40 degree temperatures. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for Spring to stay and for the weather to be warm.

March was a busy month here on the blog. There were lots of projects accomplished {both for the renovation and for fun} and the creative business series continued. In case you missed a post, here’s a little March in review from the ole blog.

I got to attend the Maker’s Summit here in town. A one day conference for indie artists and makers. I learned a lot of things that pertain to blogging and was inspired by several of the speakers including Jordan Ferney from Oh Happy Day. I loved this quote from her about being patient and persistent in achieving your goals.
