Take a sneak peek inside my studio: a yearbook of creative adventures! I'm so grateful I've been able to craft a business from all the things I love to do: lettering, stitching, reading, cooking, teaching. I’ve been in business over 20 years, and in that time I’ve worked with some amazing people and made some pretty neat stuff. Through running my business, I've set goals and organized and looked to the future. In the spring of 2013, I reorganized my business (legally-speaking), which helped me realize I spend a lot more time looking forward than I do looking back. I figured I'd never appreciate the wealth of my own story unless I started keeping track. Who hasn't looked at a blog and wondered how the artist could possibly be so prolific? Maybe if I paid more attention to my own history, I’d have a better sense of my own accomplishments. So I gathered all the creative adventures from one year in my studio, and now I’m excited to share those ideas and projects and insights with you. kickstarter gina sekelsky studio I've taken photos, drawn patterns, written instructions, and hand-lettered quotations, putting them all together in an anthology commemorating one whole year of creative work: everything from how to make your own hand-stitched hat to handwriting tips to how I schedule my time for the week. I'm calling it Studio Yearbook One because I'd like to make this an annual tradition. In a couple of weeks, I'll be letting you know about my Kickstarter campaign to help me gather the funds to finish my book. (I'm about 80% there!)  And in the meantime, don't forget to share your own summer reading.  My 2014 Summer Reading Program ends this Sunday.
