As I mentioned in a previous post, August is vacation time here in Italy. They call it ferie and the conversation all month long is about where you went, what you did…and eventually, oh no, it’s time to get back to work! Although I had plans to continue posting through this period, in the end I was swept up by the rush of hosting family visiting from the USA. I can’t say vacation was all that restful, but it was definitely great times and now I have thousands of photos to go through! Back to the grind and playing catch this week for sure.
So this past month, I didn’t have a lot of time to journal, but the creativity definitely came out in finishing up issues of my Pensieri zine. Also, if you haven’t already, check out the bookbinding tutorials I did post this August – easy peasy accordion book, longstitch binding and chain or coptic stitch binding. I’m going to take this week to get back to the old routine, but I also started thinking about all my blogs and how I could organize better and schedule my postings more consistently. If you have any comments on posting schedule and topics, please let me know! Besides this art blog that is the most active, I also blog about papercrafting on BacktoPaper, pattern designs on and embroidery on andfeeling. Since I can’t bring myself to cut down on my interests, I’ll just have to optimize my time and get more organized…I’m always wanting to do more, not less!!!
