I didn’t think I would be starting this blog with the crazy ideas so soon. A while back I read The Art of Innovation by Tom Kelley and I have been obsessed with inventing things. I never really truly invent things. That is the hard part, but I do have lots of interesting, if not slightly wacky ideas.
I have been having back problems and after lying on my face for 2 hours this morning to help my back feel better, I thought, why don’t regular mattresses come with face holes like massage mattresses. Or heck, maybe just an attachment (borrowed from massage tables) for those of us who love to sleep on our tummies.
I did a quick internet search to see if I could purchase something like that before sharing my idea, but no luck. However, I did find this really cool cuddle mattress. Now that is an interesting idea.

I did a blog about 5 years ago and kept at it for about 2 years when I got distracted with a shared blog. Well, that died and when I came back to my blog after a year break I discovered my database had vanished like Jonathan Strange in a mirror. It was long gone and my internet service provider could not retrieve it from the long ago wiped back-up files. So I gave up on blogging.
So, I am back and ready to start sharing my thoughts on my creative calamities. The title comes from the premise of success through failure and I have plenty of failures.
Here I will be posting successful art and not so successful art. I will be discussing my thoughts on art and books and whatever suits my fancy. I might be deviating from my blog premise from time to time. Crazy ideas may be common place. Rambling and digression should be expected. Off the top of my head I plan on designing my very own Tiny Dream House and my Zombie Appacolypse homestead and sharing it here.
I am a graphic artist, painter, photographer and ukulele novice with lots to share.
I’d backed up most of my posts from my old blog and I might start digging through those files and manually reposting interesting entries when the whim suits me.
So here we go again, Hello World part 2.
