I've been missing in action while I played Madam of Ceremonies and support to author and book industry members of Book Creators Circle. People like:
- Laura Milligan (Spike Milligan's eldest daughter)
- Helen Ross
- Dr Lindsay Simpson
- Boolarong Press (I went to a workshop run by Boolarong and was impressed to hear them comment on a potential downside of the move toward e-books: toxic waste that all the e-readers and ipads will eventually make. Go you good things!)
I am a published author and guest speaker myself you know. I am not celebrated but always willing to celebrate 🙂
Writers are creative people: some write and paint, some write and sew. Me; I write and craft from junk. My words are recycled and so is my post consumer waste 🙂
I am very happy but so wish I could make a decent living from both of my creative loves.
Which brings me to: There's going to be some changes around here, old woman.
I am experimenting with the genre of instruction and plan to retail at craft markets as an extra income stream. You will notice some web site changes over the next few weeks as I progress with the business plan....nothing obtrusive or vulgar but rather subtle adds and tweaks.
In the mean time, it's almost Christmas and I am planing a nativity scene from aluminium can.
What are you planning recycled craft wise for Christmas?
