« Part 721: New Printers Part 722 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series no next part

I am going to keep things short today, as there is much I need to accomplish. I spent the day yesterday writing and working on the photographs that will accompany my patterns and articles for the magazine. That pretty much filled up the day for me, and I did little else. I was able to finish up for the most part however, and the files will be waiting on my editors desk this morning. I am relieved about that.

I still have one more article that I need to finish up, but first I need to talk about some things with my editor as to which direction we are heading with it. It is the article which explains the process of using the texture past that I used for decorating the bell ornaments, and I have over 30 photographs to accompany it. I want to explain the process clearly, and I recreated the designs and took many step by step pictures of the process. I don’t know if there will be room for that many pictures in the magazine, so I need to find out before I proceed.

Either way, the groundwork has been laid and it is only a matter of assembling the information. I just don’t want to do it and go in one direction when my editor is thinking in another. I thought it was best to check in first and make sure we are on the same page with things. That way time won’t be wasted.

I did take the time to clean my printer thoroughly, including the print head, and it seems to have rectified the issue that I was having with it. I had to print out several color orders, and everything was fine. I am still planning on purchasing probably two back up printers though, as I want to have them in reserve if and when this one decides it is finished. I appreciate the comments posted yesterday regarding printers in general, and took the information to heart.

It is rainy and cold here today, and I am divided on which direction I need to work today. I want to finish the new set of ornaments and perhaps begin cutting them, but I also need to work on the step-by-step painting photographs for the new ornaments. Perhaps I will do a little of both.

With that said, I will keep to my intention of keeping this short today. I want to get an early start and see how much I can accomplish. I wish you all a happy Monday and hope your day goes well.
