New Beginnings

I created a new blog header for Notes on the Jazz Age:

What do you think? It took me a few hours to set up the “photo shoot” (if you can call it that) and to take a ridiculous amount of photos. I have always loved black and white photography, and I have vowed to learn as much as possible about it through trial and error and studying the methods of others. I also used this image to create business cards; it is perfect timing too because I only have five cards left with my old blog header.

In addition to learning photography, I have decided that I need to learn to draw. I signed up for a six-week class at the museum in Boston. We shall see how it all turns out. You will definitely see the fruits of my labor because I plan to share my experiments with photography and drawing on this blog. I would love to illustrate my stories in the future. Being a visual person, I have always been drawn to books which incorporate visuals and words.

I just shared a few of my creative adventures. Have you tried something totally new and creative lately? If so, I would love to hear about it.

    Oh goodness, I LOVE your blog new look!!!!

    I’m not an expert of photography, but I’ve been an illustrator for many years. That is, until I had to choose whether keeping writing or drawing. Can’t do both at the moment 😦

    I’ve discovered only last year that I love making jewellery. I even opened up a Etsy shop last year. But once again, as I’m working hard on getting an agent, I had to put that aside too.
    But I really really hope I’ll take both up again… sooner or later.

    Good luck with all your projects. I’ll keep an eye out for news from you 🙂

    1. Thank you – I’m so glad you like it! And thank you for sharing what you have been up to; what a busy and multitalented lady! I loved learning that you create jewelry and do illustrations. I think we all need these type of creative projects on the side. And I hear you in regards to figuring out where you should put your time – there are just so many interesting things to do in life, and so little time.
