Happy New Year, everyone!
We don't make resolutions here at blitzpampers headquarters, but we do enjoy the opportunity to start new projects. With that in mind, Jennifer is taking the Art Card Challenge. The idea is to commit yourself to creating small art every day. The card is just a format/size goal to get you started, and you can use any media you like (paint, pencil, digital, photography...whatever!). You can start with a week-long commitment and expand to a month or a year if you like. There's no sign-up, so no one keeps track of my participation but me. I just made my second card, and I'm really enjoying this! It hardly takes any time at all (depending on how elaborate you'd like to get), and it's very satisfying to get the creative juices flowing even for just a short while each evening. When I complete the challenge, I'm not sure if I'll keep the cards and use them myself or if I'll gift them to a friend. Either way, I'll take pics of the results and post them when I'm done. If you decide to take the challenge, please let me know! It would be fun to see your work if you'd like to share!
Another project we're starting is a second blog: "eating blitzpampers-style." By now you know about my obsession with food (healthy and otherwise), and I've really enjoyed the feedback I've gotten on my little "Cooking" sidebar. I thought I'd start a little food blog to share recipes and get more feedback from foodie and wanna-be-foodie friends out there. You'll have to be patient with me on the photography. I have become addicted to several food blogs on the web, and the food photography is gorgeous. I can't quite seem to take the pictures I want to of my food, but I will be working on technique as time goes on. Bear with me and please check it out over at http://blitzpampersfood.blogspot.com.
