That Adele is a bit of down to earth fun, isn’t she? I think so.
So. I am popping in to say howdy, it’s been a while. The eagle eyed may see I made some changes to my header and logo, but woefully, apart from this lament, there have been no new posts from me since last year. The crime of all crimes for a blog.
Often I’ve had a blog post in me over the last year – I have 18 drafts saved of me waffling in various degrees. My big dilemma was, and still is – can I maintain a blog? I’m not a natural at this social media game. I wax and wane in my desire to communicate, which is not very helpful when you want to build a presence on the internets.
So I return to my blog remembering the main reason for it in the first place: this space is for me to spill out and order my thicket of thoughts. Often my brain is has far too many tabs open. But in between the seconds of thinking and typing, this mush of randomness forms into something more coherent.
Now I’ve decided: I may post once a week. Or once a month. Or, it might be snippets on a daily basis, instagram style.
It may be things you can relate to. Occasionally even useful. Occasionally even humorous.
The big question is – what the bloody hell have I been doing for the last year then? Well, I’ll tell you: art making, some good, some bad, learning, reading, getting on with living and children and dogs and houses. And, closing in on what art I like to make, which is simpler, and includes surface pattern design. Unfortunately, I can’t post as much surface pattern design work as much as I’d like, for various copyright reasons, but I try and share what I can.
Also, I may go on about gardening a lot.
