Long Time No Blog...(here)...

> Yes, it's been a long time since I've posted. Believe me, it's in the back of my mind, and at the bottom of my to-do list. Yes, the bottom. Clients always come first, and thankfully, I've had a really really busy month with 3 new clients (yay!) and several projects for ongoing clients. I love being busy! 
> When I'm ahead of schedule, I move down the list and take care of my own business. muse—my email newsletter is at the top of that list, and almost without fail, I send one out every month (here's how busy I've been...I didn't send one last month, and I'm hoping to get one out this month before it's not this month anymore!) Once that's taken care of, I blog, or update online ads and portfolios. If you look at my own web site's portfolio, it's been too many months since I've updated it. But don't worry—it's on my list.
> So yes, I have a long list to-do list for myself. But since I always stay on top of client work, I don't beat myself up over it. I just make progress whenever I can, and eventually everything on gets accomplished.
> One of the things on my list is to upgrade my email newsletter to html format, and I'm really close! I won't be attaching the designed postcards to them once I switch, but because I've gotten feedback from subscribers who love them, I decided to create a new blog where I will post these quote cards. I laboured over the name, and the look and feel of everything about this new blog, and I'm really excited to announce that it's finished! And I just posted my first "Q-card" (quote card, get it?) 
> My goal is to post a card every week (I can hear you now...yeah, right!) The good news is that I've been doing my newsletter for a few years now, so I have lots of cards already designed that I can use—and every month I'll post a new design, so even my long-time muse subscribers will have a new card once a month—which is how often they received them before. I feel good about that.
> I still intend to blog here too (as I get inspired on things I need to share), as well contribute on another blog, GoodLook CookBook. Yep, they're all on my to-do list.
