The online blogging class -- which is currently exploding my brain with all the things I can do to make this blog prettier, shinier and better -- assigned me to do a mood board. A mood board is basically a collage of images about how you feel about your blog or what inspires you.
Currently, I feel like I've bungled my blog set up because I'm seeing all the things it could be. My helpful brain says things like: Should I change the name? The layout? The topics? The color scheme? Should I set it all on fire and start over???
These are not useful questions. So I ignored them and thought about everything that inspires me. All the illustrations and art that I look at to feed myself. This is the result.
I'm an avid image hoarder on Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/sleepsbrother/) and put my own photos on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/sleepandhisbrother/). Between the two, I pulled a cross section of what lights me up and makes me happy.
In doing so I realized Baby Skullhead's external arrival had drastically altered my ability to tell anything other than personal stories. My focus had drifted. Now that she has become Toddler Flails-a-lot it's time for art and shiny objects to make their way back into the blog.
I hope you enjoy the new places we will be going.
