quiet

I know I haven’t posted much here.  Part of that has to do with spending every available moment working on Museum Themes.  But, in addition to that, I’ve been guest blogging on 10timesOne and WordCamp Utah 2010 as well as trying to keep an active blog going over at Arcane Palette with posts about art… Continue reading quiet
