Hatching a Logo

It was fun designing of a logo for my Rhyming Tern site.

When most people hear "A Rhyming Tern", some thought they heard "a Remington" - presumably thinking of a Remingtons Typwriter and not the gun.

Putting the tern and the typewriter together, it looks a little like the tern was trying to hatch an egg. And perhaps that is what the artful creative life is like sometimes - a sitting and waiting. Doing little, yet doing what is so needful.

So, when it came to the logo's frame, I decided to make it in the shape of an egg. It also looks a little like the outline of an island. Imagine the waves lapping up on every side.

What do you think of the logo?

ATC on Parade 2010 - My ATC CollectionTalk

We had a cosy turnout for our talk on 7 Aug where 4 of us showcased our ATC collections. And we each have an amazing collection of ATCs from all over the world. The diversity of theme, mediums and stories that go with each set of cards made it a most engaging hour spent together.

We hope many will enjoy this exhibition.

Ready for Take-off

After some weeks of preparation, this new flight of fancy of mine is ready to meet the world: A Rhyming Tern - my small eShop of artful books, kits and games.

It has been as much fun as it has been exhausting scouting for these wonderful products abd learning all about shipping them in. Starting small but hoping these goodies have the same appeal to many out there.

Do take a look and tell me what you think.
