Wowzers – we are in July – that means I have officially been in business for 6 months. I guess i should do some figures and work out how things are going. From the last bumbling around with the books, I think I might actually be doing OK – not sure why I am so surprised! There is still a huge way to go, but hopefully I have made a good start.
I was hoping to have something very exciting to show you this morning, but no – it hasn’t really worked. The thing is, amazing as I am, not every idea works! What I had been trying to do was to cut a skull (standard paper, not a real one, although…..am giving myself ideas!) I had a go last night and spent ages doing it. I thought it was coming out OK, but once it was finished, it just looked a bit pathetic really, and not that much like a skull at all. Total rubbish. It was very disappointing. So…. I am not showing you any pictures today. But to make up for it, here are a couple of links to some rather good skulls, if that’s your thing….
Firstly, the amazing Kirsty Mason – I love her style of cutting. Check out her blog for her fab skull, and many other great works.
And if you really like skulls, check out the Skull Appreciation Society
So there you have it, sorry I have not been able to be more interesting this morning – it’s hard work, this blog malarkey! I think this post wins ‘most terrible post’ award, and perhaps I shouldn’t even publish it, but I did say to myself that if I was going to do this blog I would do it honestly and openly, which means sharing with you the failures and the rubbish boring bits aswell as any excitingness, so there you have it. I am hoping that I will have something exciting for you later in the week – a brave new project that I have started – all will be revealed by Thursday, I promise!
