Crunch Time: A Magazine In The Making
I’ve been taking a lot of photos lately and running into a lot of hexagon tile on my latest mission to make a magazine celebrating art and craft. Hexagon tile will not be featured in the publication, but there will be hexagons. Oh, yes, there will be hexagons. : )
Anyway, I always try to shoot patterns attract my eye so I can study them and figure out what it is about them that intrigues me so.
On the magazine front, the cover art (which I will reveal soon) has been selected and the abstract vision I’ve had for years is slowly coming into focus. I’m spinning the usual freelance writing, teaching and family plates while simultaneously working to develop something new. I’m a little tired, but feeling tremendously inspired. And I’ll take a plate of inspiration with a side of fatigue any day.
I’ve felt this way since the beginning of this project so I think I’m on the right track. This all feels like it’s exactly what I’m supposed to do, so I’m happily forging ahead. We’ll see what happens next. I can’t wait for you to “meet” the contributors and sponsors making it all possible. Thanks to all of you!!
If any of you were considering becoming an advertiser, there’s still a speck of time to jump in, just contact me right away if that’s the case. Advertising rates range from less than $40 to $400, so there are options for all budgets.
And if you’d like to contribute to an upcoming issue of the magazine, I’d love to hear your ideas. Talking to contributors has been one of the absolute best parts of this process. I’ll be posting official guidelines as soon as I get a break, but feel free contact me before that.
Ok, I better get back to work. There’s so much to do and yet I keep stealing glances at the “The Hunger Games” series by Suzanne Collins that I’m reading on my iPhone. I just love a good book.
