The First Post in Months Where I Actually Say Something

Go Ask Alice
The holidays were busy. I think we can all agree on that. I know many of you eased off of blogging a bit from Thanksgiving through the start of the year. But I'm not going to use that as an excuse for why I completely stalled out in November. In fact, I'm not going to offer any excuses. The plain and simple truth is that I started to dislike blogging. What once was intended as a writing exercise, a creative outlet, started to feel more like an obligation. It was time for a break, so I took one.

It felt reeeeeally good, people - and I'm more than a little apprehensive about starting up again. I will likely be posting less than I previously did, and mostly just want to use this medium to support the whirlwind of creativity I am currently caught up in. Also, I like the kind of sharing of information, ideas and resources relevant to the group of folks I've met here, so if I find something I think may interest or help anyone, I'll happily post it.

Feed Your Head
I used my time well. I don't quite know what happened, or when, but some creative door opened up in my brain, and the ideas that are pouring out of it are many, varied, and (for me) exciting. If I tried to describe all of the projects I have on the table, this post would eat up most of my evening and yours. So instead I'll put up some pictures. Let me know what you think, and I'll try to post about them in the future.
