September Challenge Complete!! 30 days, 30 creations!!! It was a tough challenge, but pushing myself to do it daily was a joy. It proved to me that it can be done if you give yourself the time. Procrastination is the enemy but carving out a small-time per day is the only way to get better at something. Cheers!
