I'm so pleased that Alice has set up a private Yahoo group for us to communicate. The past few mornings I have been reading the Twelve x 12 book and doing alot of highlighting! A number of their members have mentioned how valuable it has been both creatively and personally to be able to have a private forum ( their Yahoo group ) in conjunction with their blog. This is my first experience with actually being part of a blog, and even though I am thrilled to be a member, I am not as of yet completely comfortable with posting thoughts & ideas to share with "the world".
Another idea that I'm trying to adopt from the book is the importance of documenting the various "ideas" that I put up on my design wall. I have a small digital camera that I carry around with me in my pocketbook for those "just in case" Kodak moments,
but am now trying to make it a habit to bring the camera with me to my studio. Many times I have been "playing" and put things on the wall, think that that combination is "kind of interesting", and I will remember it. Well, I now have to admit, that I don't.
I do remember that I liked SOMETHING, but never seem to be able to replicate again ( and spend WAY TOO much time trying! ).
This might actually lead to having another "dedicated" studio camera!
