And a happy new year

Believe it or not, I am still reading the book I have on the sidebar in my "Currently Reading" section. It's just that I read it little bit by little bit because it's a lot of book to carry around.

I survived the Holiday Season with mostly the greatest of ease. Most of my work came just prior to the actual season which is probably why I don't remember it being too overwhelmingly busy. I did make a resolution to post here once a week, which I've already failed at. Whoo! Go me. So now I'm gonna shoot for twice a month.

Many plans are brewing for 2008: calendars, decoder rings, more cards, papers... I'm contemplating taking some classes at The Center for Book and Paper Arts and maybe finding a yoga class or something a little more physical than hours of LocoRoco on the couch.

Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting my all-new, completely functional, mint green, Hermes Rocket Cyrillic typewriter! It makes me want to type up encoded messages. It also makes me wish I'd paid more attention in Russian class.

That's a fantastic typewriter!

I wish we had such a think as a center for book and paper arts. I suppose that's what travelling is for :)

Happy New Year!
