A Year! More?

Hi Everyone!

I have been keeping up this blog for a year now. While I have not been able to give it the attention that I had planned, it has been a crazy year, I hope that you have gotten something good out of it… perhaps even a work in an exhibition!

Next year I am planning on getting the word out about the blog as well as stepping up the frequency of posts but certainly not lessening the quality.

Please let me know if you have any success stories! I’d love to hear from you.
