I'm Writing A New Blog Next Year!


I'm excited to unveil my new blog, www.AnArtistsYearOff.com. I hope you'll go over and follow it. It will only last for one year, and I will of course keep this blog, but the new blog will chronicle my explorations into new realms. In the past five years, I've made some (I think) really pretty jewelry -- but it's time to up the bar.

I also hope to encourage anyone who feels that they can't create, or are "too old" to create. I can't tell you how many emails I get about that, or how many people come up to me at craft shows and wistfully say they would like to try but feel that ship has sailed.

I'm QUITE certain I'm going to make a lot of mistakes as I try new things -- drawing, painting, lampworking, and even writing a book. But I'm challenging myself to get over the fear, and just TRY. And get over even more fear and share the experiences.

I'd love for you to join me, comment, share your own journey, and even start your own blog, as a sort of New Year's Diary, a way to see what you started with on January 1st, and what you end up with on December 31st, 2010.

See you there.

  8. Tempting to join you but I know how bad I am at keeping up with one blog. I really need to start working on my jewelry again though. My plan for next year is at least 3 pieces a month. I know...not a lot but I have found that I tend to prefer knotting and it takes me time. Now if only I could learn to take good pics so I could sell them. Oh and I already have your blog set up in my reader.
