Finished WIPs Round 1


Since it's late, yet again, I'm going to make this post brief on words, but full of pictures.  I wanted to share some of the WIPs that have gotten finished over the last couple of weeks.  I'm so excited to have my WIP List getting smaller and smaller.  It seems like once I took the pressure off myself to finish them up, I was free to actually enjoy working on them, and before I knew it they were getting checked off the list.  It goes to prove that lightening up a little does help with productivity.
