Hi all-
Well, I just lost an hour with daylight savings time… we sprung forward, despite that we are expecting snow here tomorrow. Even if the weather is unpredictable, I hope everything is well creatively and in all other aspects.

Here are some updates from my March 2016 listings. I have eliminated at least one opportunity that now charges 20.00, so…. :( let me know if you catch something I missed.
best of luck,
