Hello 2013 . . .

Well. I've finally managed a blog post, the first since December 17.

Is anyone still out there?

If so, I promise to do better with posting. 

Not a Resolution, because I don't believe in them,
but a plan to put more thoughts and art onto these pages.

Pantone's Color of the Year for 2013 is

...wait for it...


I'm not sure I like a Color of the Year.
The year is too long to dedicate one color to the entire time.
But Pantone, being all about color, will have their say, I guess.

I've got some projects coming up that I'm very excited about!
One of them is the Stencil Test Drive using Jessica Sporn's
new stencil designs. I've been asked to create something using
her Starry Night stencil. I love stars and swirls, and the stencil is
full of them, so it will be tons of creative fun.

My blog post featuring the art I will create will be on January 10.
Eek. It's right around the corner!

Sometimes when I'm stumped for an idea, I create a crazy background
and go from there. Hmmm . . . I do see some Emerald green in here.

I'm planning on creating more Art this year. My Muse deserted
me for a good part of 2012, so I've decided to just go on without her.
Who needs her fickle, simpering self flitting around 
dictating what I should or shouldn't do, anyway?

I would like to enter more art challenges this year, 
which will involve more time, but we'll see how it goes.
Since I won't be catering to my difficult Muse, 
things should move along faster. Right?

At Inspiration Avenue, we'll be hosting a Tag Swap soon.
I'm super excited about that since tags are awesome.

I hope you're excited about the new year!
2012 had some good things happening, but a lot of bad.
Wouldn't it be awesome if the world could make a brand new start!
Of course, all we as individuals can do is vow to do our best in 2013.

Write it on your heart that every day
is the best day of the year.
