On being caught up


Wow, I think I am going to actually clear my plate this week for the first time in 9 months. It is one thing to be caught up here at Art Paw, and yet another to totally have a clear schedule. I was just reading a great article over at How magazine about what to do with down time. It is called "Turn Slow Time Into Go-Time".

So what do you do when you find yourself with extra time at work? I would love to report that we organize file drawers and assess business reports, but the reality is we always look for some creative project to jump into. Allison has been revamping the web site this past month and trying to trim it down a bit. One of the bad things about being able to manage your own domain is the natural tendency to add more links, more pages and so on until your homepage looks like a jumbled mess. Allison has trimmed down our navigation a bit and is now working on manually updating over 1000 interior pages. Yay! .... go Allison.

We are also looking at learning i-movie and may even venture into pod-casting, who knows. I am very close to signing up over at Lynda.com for their one year training subscription. Sometimes I get nervous when we slow down and then I remind myself to just enjoy it and spend the time learning and creating.

Definitely enjoy your time right now, Rebecca...it's good for the creative psyche to have a little break I think!

Absolutely LOVED the "Cow Dogs" portrait. That is the best!
