Studio Milestones

As I prepare to take delivery of a cute little she-shed next week that will officially kick off this project, I decided to share my milestones for fundraising. It’s so much more fun to check steps off a project list than to just call it done when it’s over!

I’m also a very organized person and really love the idea of having my lil checklist. Anyone who knows me will testify that I have lists, and lists of my lists, and usually a master list of all of those lists too. (My daughter has, like, 5 planners and uses all of them, and she came by that 100% naturally!) So for those listy listertons like me, I hope you enjoy walking down the list with me this fall!
