On Wednesday, I received my business cards and postcards from moo.com. They look great, very nice quality, good color. I chose to have a series of different images on them, rather than sticking with just one or two. My only fear is that people will say, "Oh, I want one of each!" I'll have to learn to set limits. Working with moo.com was my first experience in uploading images, which took a very long time, but it gave me the courage to go to work on the website. Yes, I can learn this stuff. (What I really need is a 5th grader, who would be able to do it in his/her sleep.) Tonight we're going to a reception at Phoenix Commotion, www.phoenixcommotion.com/ with a display of innovative chairs made or recycled from used materials--maybe I'll have a chance to hand out some cards. Theirs is a website worth perusing--enthusiastic use of recycled/discarded materials to build innovative small houses, decrease the load on landfills, advance the cause of living within our means.
I'm just about done with stoles for the Diocesan Convention in February. I have seven examples completed, only lack a red one for Pentecost which I will begin this afternoon. It will be good to get back to the sewing machine. There are photos of the completed ones in Spirit Gallery 2--they're the ones for sale. Yesterday I put together a sample form for ordering commissioned stoles, hoping I can generate some orders. Guess I will also have to locate some carbon paper (talk about archaic!) so I can give people a copy of what they're ordering. I have completed a piece to submit for Larkin Van Horn's "Deep Spaces" exhibit, and plan to begin one for submission to Sacred Threads next week. More later,maybe with pictures.
