second, now that the holiday madness is over, onto a bit of real life.
i don't think i mentioned it via this blog that in january i begin a one year intensive course in graphic design and multimedia at the toronto film school.
no that's right, after two years out of a six consecutive year spell of being in college, i am back at it to navigate this funny little craftlife to a slightly different direction than even i expected.
after going through what turned out to be the wrong programin 2006, i switched to crafts and design and i found what made my bum ticker light up with almost a constant creativity, heeps of art, and making with my hands. deciding that is what i should follow was one of the best decisions i've made in my life and in a lot of ways has saved my life. for what felt like a lifetime, i had zero drive to do anything with myself.
since then, i am forever trying to build a creative world around that funny muscle hanging in my chest.
tomorrow is my first day of this new chapter in my life and i'm anxious... in a pretty good kind of nervous and a good kind of excited way.
so what does this mean for the hearts and crafts? probably no sales in the city, though i will be (finally) getting on a bit of an etsy shop update in the next few weeks. you can expect more handmade to order listings and a dash of ready to ship ones.
i'll of course be sharing any projects i'll be working on during this year and all the heart pops (and farts) along the way.
stick around if you're into that.
