Too much of a good thing?

And now it seems I have two Blogs. That's OK, I guess. My friend David has something like 45 or 50 blogs. Must be the thing to do!

But I am a little bit OCD, so I'm going to create some guidelines for myself. This here site, Wise Child, will be where I showcase anything that I make, from movies to podcasts of live music shows, to jewelry, to hats, to bags, to you name it, in the hopes that someone will see one thing and want to give me some sort of a job, or help me sell my wares. You'll find a link to Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained in the upper right corner of this page. That'll be my personal blog, for pics of family and friends. If it appears to be something of a vanity blog, keep in mind that me mum started it. Love you, mom.

Let the games begin!

Taking things apart, putting them back together differently

Inspired by a link on my mom's blog (hip mama!), I took up my magazines and started collaging again the other day. As I did, I slowly began to realize that almost everything I like to do, from video editing (cutting footage together) to building things from recyclable materials (I'm working on some designs...don't rush me!) is some variation on the activity of breaking already existing things down, and putting them together differently. Perhaps, in this day and age, when, as The Who said "Everything [we] do's been done before," re-using, re-newing, and recycling is the most exciting way to create!
