The Lowdown

I feel sometimes like I’m in a holding pattern...mostly with projects I want to work on. I’m slowly realizing that I put myself in this pattern...It’s frustrating and I don’t know why I do it. Then there are times I get so bogged down by ideas and then intimidated by what other artists are doing...that helps me to sometimes get into the holding pattern. I do it to myself. Any advice on how to stop this whole process?

In other news, I just finished uploading images for the postcard sets. There WILL be a B&W set and a color set. I tried to follow your recommendations but I also had to consider cropping and what that would do to some of the images. But most of the pages were ones that most of you recommended. I hope you’ll like them! They’ll be on Etsy as soon as I get them...

I will also be posting a couple more Moleskine journals on Etsy and soon some handbound journals as well. I just ordered a better Epson printer that will allow me to print quality copies of my journal pages that I will sell on Etsy as well. So much going on there!

Geez, I really need to get back to yoga. I think it would help clear my head. And that really needs clearing right now!

And I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who reads this blog and/or comments. You help make this blog what it is. I appreciate your candor and your visits. It really does mean a lot!

More 12 Days of Books in the next couple of days!
