The Goal: Come up wit a fun Easter Project. Spoiler: I didn't. You see I’ve spent the last couple of weeks pursuing my lifelong dream of being really tired all the time. I've been in a coaster-making frenzy with hundreds and hundreds due. But that's really the definition of a "good problem" isn't it? So,… Continue reading Easter Edition: Mo’ Bunny Mo’ Problems
