Update-Keep an Art Journal

Written by on April 26, 2013 in keepanartjournal with 0 Comments

The Good News! It seems that all my content and personal links etc. are still here and intact. Today I will go through and weed and cull to make sure that only current things are visible.

The Bad News…I need to figure out a different photo software or learn more of GIMP to make a new banner/header.

Stay tuned…
