feeling torn…

January 27, 2009

Sorry to have neglected you blog lovin’ folk!  I must say, January always seems the month to tie up loose ends, attend to the real business side of things…revamping this, tweaking that, and taxes…ugh….taxes!  Oh and we bought a wii…so yeah, a little distracted to say the least.  The other missing part seems to be inspiration…since my printer is a jerk…(there I said it)…I’ve had to fore go many of my initial January plans, and search for inspiration elsewhere.  I have an idea of the direction in which I want to take things, but it hasn’t exactly beat me in the head or anything…so I’m holding out.

According to Nick, I’ve been talking up a storm in my sleep about printers…I’m still torn as to which beast to go with…which one would you go with?

Sadly, I won’t be selling my wares at today’s market…but there are plenty of other stellar artists that will be…including verijeri,  and Robin Lynne, and many many more!  Be sure to step out and support your local artists!

I think we’ll all be watching our pennies a little closer this holiday season.  There will be some great deals to be had, and for those of us on a tighter budget, it will mean really looking hard to find that perfect gift.  So this year, I’ve taken The Handmade Pledge. I’d rather my dollars support an independent artist, artisan, or craftsman, than a corporate machine.  The best part about it?…I end up with a truly unique, one-of-a-kind, thoughtful gift, and help an indie artist continue to do what they love.  Of course Etsy.com is a great place to start shopping for all things handmade, and they’ve got some really fun ways to navigate the site.  Check it out!
