Its amazing how one week can seem so terrible and awkard, and then next week is the exact opposite! The bad times sure do make the good times seem that much better!!!
Just want to share my happiness with all and hope that everyone is having an equally amazing week :)

So I hit a lovely milestone - my 900th Sale!!! It is incredibly exciting on its own, but then the cherry on top that I was on the front page!! Sigh, I am just elated. Must get back to earth though and work on those custom orders!! Thank you to all my lovely customers and fans that have helped me reach my goals!!

This is sort of where I have gotten. My problem is that I am so indecisive and every few months I seem to change my mind. I am currently working on redoing a lot of my photos. So I don't want to do a whole new website and 6 months from now, not be happy with it because I don't like the photos. I've had my logo for awhile, but recently have been thinking, should I change it?
Does Ronald McDonalds ever think - "I don't like my logo anymore"
Its not that I don't like my logo. I do, I just wonder if I couldn't have something better?
I am extremely happy with the fonts I picked many years ago and definitely don't want them to change. And my colors - any variations of green w/ light blue.
I think it just all comes down to the fact that I like change. Change is exciting and keeps things from being boring. I've never really thought I was one to get bored easily. If I love something, I don't get bored with it at all. If I only just like something, I usually think I can do better until I find something that I love. Sigh.....

I'm hoping to start doing more key chains too, not just the constellations. I remember when I was a student, my first student sale was coming up and a friend of mine stayed up late one night making really fun key chains. They are a great way to do something quick and fun and loose. I remember that more fondly than a lot of projects I was assigned! You can check it out in my shop here.

When I heard on NPR that Art Rosenbaum won a Grammy, I was SO excited, almost as if I had won it! Though I never had him as a professor, one of my painting classes was next to his class one semester. The painting room was a very large with extremely high ceilings. It was divided down the middle w/ some lockers and organizing slots for paintings and drawing boards. They didn't go up to the ceiling and didn't block off the two rooms from each other very well. Which was a good thing! Art often brought in his banjo and invited other musicians to come in and play for his painting students (it was a figure painting class if I remember). It was such a treat to get to eavesdrop. His wife, Margo, is in the continuing education jewelry class that I help out with. Her photographs are in the book that comes in the box set of field recordings. I am so happy for them to be honored in such an amazing way. Check out the youtube video above and this article which includes links to more info on him and a video about Volume II.
