I know, I know. We’re nearly a month into summer, and here I am doing a spring semester wrap-up. Things have been busy, OK?! I shared many of these projects as I did them, either on the blog or on Instagram, but there are a few that feel like I did them secretly. I never got around to sharing them on social media, so–what a sign of the times–it feels like they don’t exist yet. Here are all my fun projects from spring semester!Continue reading “Spring Semester Wrap-Up: Projects and Designs from March to May”
