Have I ever told you how absolutely in love with Pittsburgh I am? You may remember my move here last fall; sparked by a yearning for a more vibrant and affordable city. The cost of living in Pittsburgh is low enough that creative people can actually afford to be creative! It may sound silly, but the proof is in the pudding. I am surrounded by inspiring movers-and-shakers all doing amazing projects, many of which center around the creation, promotion, and/or appreciation of art and design. It’s like heaven for me.
