A few days in bed with flu allowed me to do some thinking. 🤔
I’d love for recommendations of good mics for podcasts / vlogs. Should be somewhat portable and under $50. Nothing fancy. 🎙️
Also looking for a website where you can upload designs for all-over prints for sweaters. I’ve found a bunch, but none give me control over the back of the sweater (just copies the front). 👕
