A new social network was created on ning.com, “Artists of the North,” started by photographer Jim Dummer of Tomahawk, WI. It is to be a place of “communication within the artists community of northern WI,” and a place to share ideas and insights. It is also for people interested in the arts and artists. I just joined, and am looking forward to the sharing and discussions that will take place. http://artistsofthenorth.ning.com.
So far today, I have been resting from the past three days of the art tour. Now, though, I think a walk outdoors would be good, even though it is cold and breezy. Then it is my usual, socks to make, toes to close, and weaving to do, and that is all good. There will be a good sense of accomplishment tonight.
One more thing I did today, a second microloan on KIVA, http://kiva.com, and I’m sitting here smiling and thinking of a woman in Mongolia working to improve and increase her business. Time for my walk, so I can get back to tending Shuttle Works Studio.
