Happy New Year

Well, here it is 2008. Already the 2nd, by about an hour. I spent most of the day and all evening in the studio. If what you do on New Year's Day is what you'll do all year, then I'm going to have a wonderful year of artifying. I avoided any cleaning, arranging, sorting or tidying...I just made stuff. So I think I'm safe.

I'm not a resolution-maker by any means, but I dearly want this to be a year of Doing Things Differently. And I want it to be a year of Using My Cool Stuff. I have so much cool stuff in the studio that I don't even know what I have. I keep chanting "You haven't saved it until you've used it. You haven't saved it until you've used it." I think I finally, truly BELIEVE that. Now I want to use it.

Here are some new and old Artistamps I've made. I made some more this evening but didn't bring them home to scan. All of these were issued by the Ephemeroptera Post or the Royal Ipomoeian Postal Authority...more on those another time.

This is a test comment; someone said comments aren't (isn't?) working.

You have an amazing collection of materials to work with in your studio. I'm looking forward to seeing what you will do with them, and I'm looking forward to a different sort of a year, this go around, too.
