A Note from Emily
The concept of “Today” is a fun one to play with, I’ve done it every so often and have always loved the results, there’s a “now-ness” about the layout that takes me back to how I was feeling when I created it. This layout was made while I was chatting online with Paula Gilarde. It was cold and snowy outside, but our chats always make me happy. I wanted to capture that.
January Fun Fact
I heard a quote in an interview with singer/songwriter Tom Waits that really spoke to me. Speaking about creativity ebbs and flows, he said, “Music has rests in it, so you are on a rest right now. And the music will begin shortly." I like thinking of a lack in my creativity as just a rest in the music. It makes it a little easier to handle the mojo-less days, weeks, months that I’ve been having lately.
