For those of you already on my newsletter mailing list, it will not come as a surprise that this month I have reduced the prices on all my publications, including my poetry chapbook, photo book and wall calendar. As a special thank you to my customers, I am adding free of charge with any purchase one of my desk calendars! I have great fondness for my own work, but I don't need quite so many copies keeping me company. Consider this a clearance sale of sorts. I have some new projects I'd like to begin this spring and I need both the mental and the physical space to work! Thanks to all who have already contributed to this effort!
See the sidebar to purchase items using the BUY NOW buttons. Descriptions of my calendar can be found in my IMAGE SHOP by following the tab above. My photo book, whose genesis you can read about by clicking on the STUDIES IN CONTRAST tab, is still set to full preview via the Blurb site if you want a peek inside, but please purchase direct from me - my prices are a lot better and Blurb doesn't send free calendars!
Every Kind of Night Sky
Before I hang up my crochet hook for the season, I've produced one more scarf which is a tribute to the many moods and colors of the night sky from the moment the sunset ends to just before sunrise begins. Perhaps this theme appeals to me because I too am in a "between" time of sorts.
A Closer Look
On a technical note that will surely strike a chord of sympathy with many of you out there, for some reason, I've been having problems lately capturing the colors of my recent works when I document them for online listings. This is especially vexing for a photographer! Possibly there is now too much natural light in my studio and my digital camera can't adjust - which really means I am not adept enough with my digital camera to adjust it myself! Maybe this is the real reason I prefer shooting black and white film! In any case, in the interest of accuracy, I am now including an offer with all my crocheted creations to send my potential buyers a small sample of the actual fiber used in the product if there is any doubt about true color. Believe it or not, I have tried to snatch online images of certain yarns from the sites of the vendors who originally supplied them, and even they are sometimes far from accurate! I'm always happy to accept returns or exchanges if it comes to that, but why not save everyone the trouble and get it right the first time?
I'm working on a much more thoughtful and much less shamelessly self-promoting post for next week, so thanks for reading and see you then!
