These past few months have been nothing short of amazing and I am so thankful for this maker community! Finally finding my direction and purpose has really allowed me to step into the Maker I want to be and so much of it has to do with the positive and uplifting makers that I have only just begun to connect with. There are so many that may or may not realize how much of an impact that have had on my journey and I am SO thankful for all of them. There are too many to name but I am sure you know who you are!
