Author ad creation and other things keeping me busy

Lori Tiron-Pandit books adThings have been keeping me busy these past two weeks and as much as I don’t like it when the blog goes down to the bottom of the to-do list, it happened again. Last week I had a final project to submit for the Information Design course I have been taking. The final project was a “me” advertising piece. I came up with this little author ad that you see illustrating today’s post. I need to find a way to acquire the rights for this flower background image that I used (it’s only available for personal, non-commercial use) if I really want to use this ad, which I would very much like to do.

This week my husband and I had the interview required in the process of naturalization. We passed, and after the oath ceremony in June or maybe July, we’ll be American citizens. I’ll be able to vote in the 2016 presidential elections! Yes, I know!

This process also offered me the opportunity to change my legal last name to the hyphenated form I have been using as a pen name anyway. I’m over the moon about that too.

I have been sewing to relax in between studying for the interview and working on the author ad project. Next week I’ll show you the results of that endeavour.

Hope you’re keeping productively and happily busy and find moments to relax and enjoy your days in between.

  1. Hi Lori!

    I just saw your comment on my blog. I miss it too, sometimes. It’s sad I don’t really write on it anymore…I just don’t have the urge like i used to. But I miss you, too! Are you on instagram, or will you be soon? I hope so. It’s my new favorite place to keep in touch and share small stories. I would love to stay connected with you there. And when does your new book come out??!?!?! I want to order a copy. Keep me on your mailing list, if you have one. XOXOXO

    1. Hi Sadie,
      Thanks for leaving me a note!
      I think I’m following you on Instagram (although I don’t use it much to post myself). But I still miss your blog, anyway. I’ll have to try to connect through Instagram more.
      And, yes, I’ll let you know about the second book for sure. Thanks for asking about it! I’m hoping to finish it soon, although it’s very hard right now to balance everything.
