A Mini Overhaul for 2015

So, the site is back! I took it down over the weekend as I worked to clean-up a lot of the content. Needless to say, it was a mini-overhaul.

As you can see, I'm in the process of changing the colour theme to one I've put together... Color by COLOURlovers ...And ... Continue Reading
