Well, going by the responses to last post it seems we have 6 potential members: Sue, Luitgard, Jenny, Mimi, Susanne and myself (Kathryn). Unless some of you are going by aliases, this doesn't seem to bear much resemblance to the members list on the sidebar of the blog. We all seem to agree a fresh start is needed with some differences about how we go about that, prinipally about what platform we use. I am happy to take an active role in moderating once we have set up a renewed and revitalised website/blog/whatever, but honestly don't have the technical skills to get us started. It would also seem we should increase our membership - perhaps by invitation to our readership(such as it is) or through our personal connections. I am at the Australasian Quilt Convention next week, and could use that to network. I am also wondering if regular challenges suits our needs, as most of us seem to have difficulty completing them. I wonder if this is the inspiration we need at this stage of our collective creative lives. Maybe we should realistically look at less challenges, and more sharing and comments about whatever else we are working on and finding inspirational. More like a community of artists encouraging and spurring each other on. For example, perhaps every two months we respond to a prompt such as: What technique / medium currently excites you? Where do you do your creative work? How do you track down the muse when she has gone into hiding? Just some thoughts. Please respond, whether or not you are an official member. Cheers Kathryn p.s I still can't seem to load any photos!
