Smart, she is…

That’s my tribute to Star Wars… The ring tone on my phone is also Yoda… it makes me laugh when it doesn’t surprise me and freak me out. 😮

So you’re probably wondering who the “she” in the title is – it’s my sister, Laurel. She wrote a post for BlogHer, which got me thinking about this blog.  When I first started this website/blog, I had to give a lot of thought as to its purpose.  What I came up with was using it as motivation to produce.  I used the words “guilt and shame” in my first blog entry – if you’ve told people you’re going to do something, it’s harder to let it slip away. I think Laurel’s word – accountability – puts a bit more of a positive spin on it.

Over the past 14 months, I’ve noticed a decline in my posting, and unfortunately that means two things – 1) I haven’t been producing as much, and 2) when I do produce, I’m forgetting to write about it.

I’m not a person who make resolutions – I never keep them, and who wants to feel bad about failing?  I will, however, work on this whole accountability thing, by putting a thought out there.  Something I’ve been thinking about doing, and have been putting off, is creating items and posting them to sell.  I don’t know if this website or a link to Etsy would be the route to go, but it’s something for me to start figuring out.

So, that’s me, contemplating the fresh new year.  I hope it brings you joy and contentment!

I leave you with some of my latest work, which I had a lot of fun making.  Take care all!
