I had a wonderful relaxing staycation, with many naps and lots of time to think. The thinking led me to reevaluate everything I've been doing over the last 10 years or so. I've decided to make a few changes that already have increased my sense of well being and given me a feeling of ownership of my life and art.
First thing I decided was to take down my old www.wowmelody.com website, (as of August 1st) since it hasn't been updated in like seven years, and most of the stuff is sold anyway, so why keep it? Then I had to consider what would replace it, and I decided on having a brand new blog with the auspicious title Melody Johnson. The url is www.mixitupmel.blogspot.com because it will record a variety of new pursuits, which may or may not be quite different from what I have done here.
I am keeping Fibermania up for the duration because so much information is posted here, and I may need to refer to things in the future.
I hope you'll consider visiting me at my new blog, and sign up for email notification, as I doubt I will be posting as often. One of the things I realized was that most nights I go to bed worrying about what I will blog the next day. It resulted in quick-hurry-up art, and not enough trying out of new ideas. Now I want to take my time and be more thoughtful about the art I make.
