Sustainability vs. Perfectionism

I started writing this with the intention of making a simple “what I’m thankful for” Thanksgiving blog post (cute, right?) – but as I started writing, I realized there were some things I had to cover first. They tie in pretty nicely with the gratitude-bit, but they’re also things that (I’m sure) apply to almost… Continue reading Sustainability vs. Perfectionism

Four years, but this year…

It’s important to reflect every once in a while. For me (Sammy here), that comes around each year on what I like to call Pixel Day (the anniversary of the first Pixel Planet Today post).
