New beginnings

This has been a year of new beginnings for me. I vowed to spend more time being creative and on the things that inspire me. Not surprisingly quite a few of them overlap. I started doing pottery and one of the first things I made were herb names for my newly planted herbs. Now I'm thinking of making them for Christmas presents. I've also started a herb pot for my mom inspired by african masks.

On top of this I've always wanted to experiment with botanical art and the first experimental results have become my title design. Now the blog; which has given me a way to start arranging my thoughts and a context for the rest.

(Instead of isolating the individual I think the world wide web has given many of us a voice and a way of finding like minded individuals to be inspired by and with which to share.)

Exciting times indeed.
