Hey Lisa, I have a ? about your "norms" pin on Pinterest. Did you do that yourself or did you find it somewhere? I'm trying to find the original author of it so I can give credit where credit is due. I looked through the blog to see if you had it posted anywhere, but couldn't find it. I posted a picture of my version today and want to go back and link it to the correct source if I can. Thanks for the help!
