News! I Have News!

I haven’t written anything this month, completely failing at NaNo, but I have good reason…

I start my new job on Monday! I don’t want to go into much detail (like naming the company) until I’m situated and know how they feel about these things, but it’s still a design job, I’ll be part of an internal department (which I’ve wanted for a long time), and I can bring Owen (I don’t know how often yet)! It’s in Grand Rapids, which is where I ultimately want to live, so things are finally moving in the direction I want. Wheee!

I’m excited to share my other project, Ink Slinger Designs. I’ve found a way to combine my love of design and love of writing with my love for helping others and creating pretty things. Go! Go! Go check it out and please like my facebook page while you’re at it. And if you have an upcoming project, you know where to find me.

So what’s new with you?

    Hey, congratulations.
    When are we going to do lunch?
    I have the week of Thanksgiving off, and there are many places here to eat.
    Love the new business idea.
