Happy New Year!
Hope everyone had a great holiday season! I know I did. New Year’s Eve we held an impromptu party and had fun getting to know people and playing word games…and eating. 🙂
For those of you new to the blog, let me introduce myself…
I am Jean Ottosen, a fibre artist working in the medium of traditional rug hooking. I am a folk artist hooking with primarily silk and wool fibres on primitive linen backing. I sell my work in shops and exhibit across North America. I work out of my home studio located in beautiful Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.
I blog to motivate myself to finish projects, and inspire myself to create new work. I hope it inspires my readers too. I look for inspiration around me and post photos to inspire others. My motto is “Seek – Create – Inspire”.
I also blog to share the daily life of an artist with my readers.
And, I blog about food, because what’s a good hook-in with friends without food?! Recipes appear not only on this blog, but can be found indexed and linked on the page “Recipes”.
Since Christmas I have been busy working up plans for this new year. Things will change a bit on the blog. Well, really it’s more a formalizing of what I’ve already been doing. Here is some of what you’ll see…
- a Monday post on my plans for the week,
- recipe posted once a week,
- inspirational photo(s) once a week,
- WIPs (works in progress) not only in rug hooking, but also in other crafting areas,
- a Friday post summarizing what was accomplished this week.
- there will be no posts on Saturday and Sunday.
I hope you like the changes and, if there is anything you’d like to see on my blog, either leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank-you for following my blog and “liking” my posts. 🙂
