Brand New

I've been easing my way into 2011. Going slow, taking my time... until it felt right to start using "2011".  I've been hatching ideas and circling them. Rolling them around between my fingers and generally talking to myself, more than usual.

So, I came up with a logo for myself. I carved a piece of wood to (hopefully) resemble a typewriter key.

Then, I spread ink on it and stamped it:


I've discovered something about myself, recently. I am happiest when I am sharing my own creativity and helping other people live more creatively. Whether it's through my writing or knitting or block printing or even painting the furniture. And, I'll admit it, I love facebook and twitter... social networking suits me. My plan is to harness these things, share what I love and who I am, and help other creative people like yourself,  reach an even wider audience. I have a few ideas about how to go about this... the main one being that in the next few weeks I am going to start offering my services as a social networking manager... that's right, you or most likely your company can hire me to "tweet" for you... There is a lot to do and I can't wait to get started. I will post more details very soon.

Here's to a creative 2011!
