Sooo welcome to my new website. I switched over several months ago but never really knew what to do about my existing blog (I have been sort of blogging here and there over on moonandsparrowblog.com over the years, a sort of personal blog about work and family.) I can't delete it because it's a place for me to share things among the few readers I have and to sort of keep people up to date on new projects, family, latest hairstyles I love.
But as I become more and more immersed in my work and illustration, in the working mom culture (re - guilt, stretched-too-thinness, "squeeze-it-all-in-ness"), something that I have been wanting to use this blog for is to talk about the nitty gritty of a) art and creativitiy b) small business c) running your own show and being a mom - a subject that fascinates me because of the sheer intensity and seeming impossibility of it - yet the bliss and comfort it has brought me. Could they all find a place together here? I think so.
I don't have much time, and I fear another commitment that will put pressure on me and take up too much focus. So I will be starting a small, fun project here on this blog in a very informal structure. I can't give more details for the moment, only to say that if you are an artist, a mom and working for yourself, and would like to participate in this project (nothing big, 25 minutes of your time) get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
It will be fun, promise!
