It’s Saturday

I have no skill at titling posts. This reminds me of a newspaper I design at work. The customer never provides headlines. They send the articles without heads and I guess I’m just expected to throw something together. ugh. I’m a designer, not a writer folks, this is not a smart move. I usually just throw something together with the general topic of the article, but I always hope they will see how lousy the heads are and start providing them.

Speaking of heads. I finally put up my new banner on my blog, etsy and twitter. And, wouldn’t you know, as soon as I did, I wanted to change it to something entirely different. I thought I was going to have a meltdown. But, I’ve just decided to let it go, and not worry, be happy. It’s good enough. The most important change wasn’t really even the header so much, as making the background all white. I had a gradient gray color there before and it was claustrophobic to my posts. I wanted the blog to be like a gallery with white walls, so my artwork is the focus. I’m excited to”publish” this post and see it in action.

I didn’t have a chance to post my mailart yesterday because I actually had to go to work. Imagine that, a 5 day work week! And I was busy, busy, busy. Things have been picking up at work and while having 4 day work weeks has been a dream come true, I would also LOVE to get back to work fully and start making what I used to make on my pay checks. We’ll see how it goes.

So, without further delay, I present you with this weeks mail dump. And once again, just a reminder I’m writing a list on the back of each postcard that I send, so that is the text that appears under each card.
