Hey Lee,

Thanks for mentioning my LP books on your site - that's awesome! I'm glad you like them. I had seen something similar on the web a few years ago and thought to myself "I could do better"...so this is what I came up with.

Cheers!

My pleasure, Natalie. They're extremely praise-worthy. I love that "I can do better" impulse too, along with the "hey, I could do that!" reaction. Many an art career launched with those words. . . .

Hi... I know you don't know me, so you couldn't possibly be writing about me, but I totally recognized myself in this post all the same. In the "I might be able to use that in a piece of art someday;" in "small and packed with both shelving and computer equipment, making the work space negligible" and in "When I was moving ...I made the mistake of ditching a lot of stuff that I wish I had now...That said, where the heck would I store them? I mean, I got rid of them because I didn't have anywhere to put them. And that's the recurring problem."

Eeek... like looking in a mirror. My husband and I live in a house now, and I have less workspace and less storage space than I did when I lived in a tiny studio apartment in Philadelphia.

I am glad to know, though, that I'm not the only person who regrets throwing things away.

Lee

Hi Alison! You're definitely not the only one with regrets, not by a long shot, I'm sure. :^) And I love your maps! I love maps of imaginary places and yours are lovely. Thanks for dropping by.
