As usual, I’m trying to clean things up around the apartment. One way I’m doing this is to make better use of some of my stuff.

I redesigned the Meadow’s Mirth website (back in January of this year) as a custom WordPress theme. Even though it’s been up for over half a year, I thought it might be nice to give a little more detail on the project. Here’s what the site looked like before: I actually designed this site for […]
