A Happy Monday to you... many thanks to all the artists and makers featured in this week's mosaic. It's a sunny if chilly start here. Not bad at all.
This week I am going to spend some time working on the final edit for my forthcoming zine 'Home'. I still have quite a bit to do. Putting together a zine does take time, but I find the process worthwhile and I learn a lot about putting images together and the basics of it all. This one will be out January 4th - which seems a while away yet but really is not.
I was listening to the radio yesterday evening (I listen to the radio nearly all day every day - not really tv watcher) - and the presenter was talking briefly about musicians who have been writing a song a day for the year. This reminded me of how it is not just visual artists who undertake a 'one a day' or a '365' or '100' challenge. It's a format open to all. It also reminded me that I really want to put together some kind of database of ideas. So that if you want to take on a new challenge in 2012 - well there's a whole list of ideas you can mull over....
So tomorrow I will blog 'ideas for daily projects in 2012' - or something like that - not sure of the blog entry title just yet. And I would love it if you could come back tomorrow and leave suggestions. I'll add all ideas (as long as not illegal or offensive) to the list. I am a list maker by habit, so the idea of sharing a list of ideas appeals to me as rather an indulgence. Let's see what we can come up with - ideas for visually-related projects wise. More tomorrow then.
I'm also hoping to add one or two new items to my shop this week. Please note that if you are in the UK there is still time to buy in time for Christmas delivery. However, if you are elsewhere it may not get to you before the 25th. The post office today (I've just come home from there) was busy but as efficient as ever.
Please also note: I shall not be posting packages between December 21st and January 4th. My shop will remain open during this time but I will not be able to guarantee an opportunity to get to the post office, due to holiday closures etc.... I shall put all this info in my shop but thought I would just note here also.
Have a good start to the week - and more tomorrow x
