I totally meant to be like Melissa & post every day this month, in the spirit of January & everything, but I have spent the past few days eyeing up some CSS manuals, which sucked all energy & will to blog from my being. But! I persevered (& found a much easier way to do things, which turns out to be have someone else do all the CSS work for you), & now I am excited to share that eightbyeight, the blog for my new collaborative art project with the inimitable Blair, is up & running. I made a banner & everything.
The idea is that, for the next 12 months, we'll start each month by sending each other an 8"x8" box of supplies based on a theme (you can see our list on the eightbyeight about page), & by the end of the month, we'll each have made an 8"x8" project incorporating each of the materials from the box.
On the blog, we'll be sharing our materials, inspiration/process, & final results; we'll also be posting pictures on flickr along the way.
I got my first box of goodies from Blair on Sunday, & while I have no real idea where I'll be going with it yet, I'm super excited about the start of this project. I love working small, & I think we have a great list of themes that will send us in all sorts of new directions. Stop by & say hi!
