Linda Brown - Technical Editor

Considering that I am a new designer, who mostly looks for things that are gratis (free or close to it), I can't really put a price on this valuable service since I am still learning what things cost, but I would budget my pennies to be able to afford occasional help from Babs.

No suggestions, just lots of praise! Babs, you were a lifesaver. I'll never be able to thank you enough!
