How about a peek at the process behind some of my more recent products?
Our house is littered with cardboard boxes right now. It looks like we’re moving! I had a few big shipments of packaging supplies delivered this week, and I have no where to put them. This morning I started clearing out some storage space, and I came across a crate full of 10 or 15 of [...]
