10/365, Steampunk and Blog Thoughts


I love bottles. And I love playing with light on them, hence today’s Photo of the Day. This bottle comes from a collection I’m starting for my Steampunk project. I’ll be working on a themed costume for the Steampunk World’s Fair in May (and other events hopefully) and I want to make a curio style carry box. So I’m collecting cool small bottles to put in it. Once I start in earnest on the project I’ll start posting about the process, but for now let me just say that it’s going to be super cool.

Reading some other blogs today I realized that lately I’ve been very photo heavy and not very talkative lately. I think it’s just where I am at right now in life. I’m on the verge of a lot of things, but that verge seems to be taking a long time to break over to the other side. For example, I am working on three different logo projects, but none are done enough for me to show off my work yet. Also, I tend to not be too personal on this blog, I try to keep it business/crafty oriented. And lately the crafty part of my life has been slow.

The point is, I’m going to make a greater effort to both be more creative and be more talkative on this here blog. I’m also not going to be too judgmental about what I blog about at first.

Additionally, a new goal for myself is to not get caught up in the little things that tend to distract me from the bigger projects. I spend so much time on twitter, facebook and blog reading that I lose time I should be being creative during. I’m going to try and change my schedule so that the internet addictions come later after I’ve already been creative for the day.

Wish me luck.
