On this auspicious day of 09.09.09 (depending upon which culture you follow) I’m going to come clean and make an announcement. The photo projects that I mentioned? One was really by the by – to actually enter a photo competition this year, rather than thinking about it so much that I missed the closing date. I have that one ‘in hand’ as we speak – prints ordered and now I just have to pick what I think is the best and send it off.
More important however is the other photo project and here is why I should come clean about this – it’s going to take a whole lot more time than I anticipated. I’m currently in the process of setting up an art and design venture with my two daughters, both of whom are talented at art but both of whom are earning their daily crusts in a strictly financial environment (not much of a creative outlet there then). As three people who love creating things I thought it about time that we put our heads together and started taking our love of art, craft and design more seriously. Post stroke I’ve concentrated on photography so that’s why I referred to a ‘photo project’ but our venture will be so much more than that.
I’m going to make a point of checking in here regularly, mainly because if I didn’t I’d start to miss you, and partly because being here is simply a welcome rest for my poor frazzled brain. (Things described on the web as ‘so easy to set up that they don’t need instructions’ ? Clearly when the wizz kids wrote the code they hadn’t come across someone as computer illiterate as me).
So that’s the lie of the land around here. When we’re ready to go public I’ll be celebrating our launch with some kind of promotion or prize / giveaway. ‘Oh no! Not another blog giveaway‘ I hear you cry. Oh yes, you better believe it! Trust me, you won’t want to miss it.
Oh, and I should say that my other WordPress site of Voix Douce is still hanging around in the wings, ever faithfully dispensing pearls of wisdom (although, there again, not as often as I’d like). I’m a bit like the Scarlet Pimpernel. If I’m not here …you may find me there!
