Hello, hello! How has March been treating you? I hope very well! It's been busy, busy here. Lots of work, which is something to be so grateful for. It's all sort of happening at once, so I have no photos to share yet, but will soon. The last few days I've taken a break from deadlines to work on some new things for the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair, which is this Saturday. I've had a great few days in the studio mixing colors and printing.
I decided that for this fair I would make a pledge to myself to keep it simple, use more color, and most importantly that I would have a good time. So far, so good! I've had a wonderful assistant these past few days, the sun! It's been warm, and bright and very cheery on the fourth floor this week. Fingers crossed the sun comes out again today! I'll take some snaps of my progress to share here with you again tomorrow. For now, here are a couple of shots of my inspiration wall at the studio, complete with color swatches!
Thanks so much for all of your thoughtful comments about cutting back and weeding through blogs. I really enjoyed reading what your thoughts were on the topic. My rule has become so effective that this week I'm only looking at flickr. I may sneak a peek here and there at a couple of links from photos of friends, but it's been very easy to be away, easier than I thought. It's helped me be so much more productive with my time, and I feel a tension has left my shoulders as well.
Ollie is happy too, because it means during little breaks for tea here and there I'm no longer staring at a screen, I'm playing ball with him! I have missed many of you though, and know I will return. I told myself that the next rainy day in that I take off will be full of netflix movies and catching up with you, sweet friends.
Have a beautiful day!
