At the behest of many of my friends and family (and sometimes even perfect strangers!) I am starting a blog. Moreover, it has been a personal goal of mine for at least a year or two to organize and store my ideas in the form of a blog, for easy reference and sharing! Another goal is to try to make my living off of my creativity with out having to go back to a company and returning to life as a photoshop and/or illustrator monkey. :)
I suspect I’ll be mainly posting about my artistic and creative endeavors, whether they be personal or professional. This includes, but is not limited to, drawing, painting, vector graphics, web design, sewing, knitting, pattern making, interior design and jewelery making. Did I cover everything there? Probably not. Sometimes I wonder if I have this sort of blind confidence that allows me to tackle any project to see if I can do it. Luckily, it usually works out in the end, with plenty of trial and error along the way. I’m sure I’ll be documenting some of those trials! You learn so much more from your failures than you do from your successes.
Lastly, I’m sure I’ll be occasionally be posting about my family adventures. I’m recently married to an amazing man (about 10 months), and I’m currently pregnant (about …9 months! Hee!). I’m lucky enough to live within 25 miles of the majority of my immediate and extended family, with whom I have a very close relationship. So this blog should (will?) cover my attempt at making a successful home business and our path to becoming a new family.
