Best Of Dodge & Burn's 2011 Posts

So I started off writing this post thinking that I wouldn't have anything much to link to, but looking back at this year's posts I surprised myself. Despite my new-Mommy lifestyle, enrolling in graduate school for my MFA and a few personal struggles, I managed to keep this blog afloat with some good content.

Here are a few headlines of note:

Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!
This new year is already chock full for me - juggling classes every day, an internship, freelance writing, my own daily artistic practice and of course my more humbling roles at home.

Happy New Year to you all and thanks for being such wonderful readers... I wish you a very inspiring, productive and creative 2012.

Much LOVE,
Qiana Mestrich
