Well, now February has come to an end, and I am posting my monthly "Ta Da" list. As I mentioned when I posted my first list at the end of January, this list, which I plan to post at the end of every month, chronicles all of the ways I am living a creative life and working toward my goals. It may be of interest to no one else, but my blog is my online journal, and my one consistent source of self-expression, so it's the best place for this list to reside.
so, this month, I...
planned & taught a card making class at the senior center;
planned & taught my House of Collage accordian book class at Stampassion;
hosted a surprise party for my husband's 50th birthday (it was a bowling party, and everyone had a great time!!);
created Asian atc cards for a monthly swap;
designed an identity system for my amazingly talented friend Ali's new handmade soap company - Grubby Wench Soap (more on that in a later post!!)
assisted a friend who is an event planner with graphic design for the Northeast Make a Wish Foundation gala;
created a 4 x 4 mixed media signature piece for Art Connection's Little Fat Book club quilt;
am teaching myself how to solder jewelry. I've made 6 charms so far (for a charm swap), and only burned one finger;
was solicited by Stampington & Co. to design greeting cards for upcoming issue of Stampers' Sampler, and I'm almost finished (yippee);
read three good books: The secret life of bees - by Sue Monk Kidd; In the company of the cortesan by Sarah Dunant, and The uses of enchantment by Heidi Julavits;
edited and submitted my (rejected) article to a new magazine for possible publication;
and submitted 5 pieces of artwork to Somerset Studio for possible publication in a future issue.
