Inspiration Board : my home office wall

Posted by

Since moving to the Starrett Lehigh building in the Spring, we gained a lot of light and some space, but I had to give up 2 large bulletin boards I had in my office. One was always for the story I was working on currently, and the other never really changed, just ‘evolved’. For current …
