Spolight on Dakota Frank
Mile High area geeks know Dakota Frank. Not only is Dakota one of the bravest badasses in Colorado, he happens to be a super talented writer. Dakota will be at MileHiCon offering his very cool Sacred Self Cards. On one side of the card is a prayer for peace, love, and strength. On the other side is an affirmation that he wrote. His good friend Robin did the artwork for the affirmation side, and he did the artwork for the prayer’s side. These cards will be selling in packs of eight with lovely handmade pouches. Stop by to say hello to Dakota.
