I’m super excited about this new year. It’s almost like I’ve got butterflies in my stomach!

So excited, in fact, that I thought it would be cool to tell you a little bit about what’s going on in my life and on the blog.

In a few days, we will be moving into a new space, and that alone is going to change my life. I’d gotten so attached to my life as a freelancer that I’d kind of let the studio take over our apartment – now all I want is to have a real creative space, and also to be able to go home to my own place, you know, now and then.

The team has grown too. I used to think that working alone was perfect for my personality. I’m now realizing how much I love to collaborate, the life at the Studio and I also love teaching other people about what I know.

The blog is evolving as well. We’ve talked about it here before, it’s always changing, so it’s not much of a surprise: in my opinion, a blog is a form that’s never finished or sacred, it’s more like an ever-evolving organism that’s always responding to the many different possibilities that come up in the digital world.

I’ve always liked crosses. I simply find them very beautiful.

I wasn’t raised in a religious home – my father comes from a Catholic family and my mother from a Muslim family. They are both atheist, and I was never baptized or taught about any religion in particular.

I’ve gone to baptisms and celebrated Christmas just as often as I’ve helped my grandmother prepare the Eid meal. I was even invited to a Sabbath celebration recently, and I felt very honored. I have a lot of respect for religion.

So I didn’t think about it too much when I bought this cross. I found it sublime, perfect, and I wore it all the time – I still wear it!
