Ringing in the New!

Happy New Year Everyone! Hope you had a safe and joyful celebration last night. I had a quiet night at home with my guys, which suits me just fine.

January 1st brings with it the opportunity to start new projects and to that end, I wanted to announce the launching of the Be My Valentine Blog. If you were following the 12 Days of Xmas Blog, you know that that swap drew to a close last week. What will you do for eyecandy now? Well, you can visit the Valentine's blog! We had so much fun doing the last gift exchange, that I decided to host one more before taking a hiatus from these kinds of projects. (One of my goals this year is to cut back significantly in order to persue some of my other artistic yearnings.)

To that end, I accepted an invitation to join Art Pub Studios which is a network of artists supporting one another to reach their personal goals. It will be helpful to have a sounding board and to be able to receive constructive feedback. I am also looking forward to supporting the other members. So much of the processing and work we do as artists takes place alone in our studios and it can be quite an insular experience. It will be nice to feel like a part of a team-together everyone accomplishes more. *Note: The website for Art Pub Studios is a work in progress.

So that's where I am at on this first day of the new year-thinking about the unlimited potential that lies ahead in the 364 1/4 days left of 2007. Onward ho!

Hi Robin,
A bunch of the ladies who were in the 12 Days of Xmas exchange wanted to do another so I came up with the Valentine's exchange. It's full, unfortunately, but thanks for you interest!
