Recently I've been thinking about advertising and marketing.

I saw this amazing ad.. It was for Oreo cookies (can I talk about name brands freely?).. it was some sort of thing holding liquid.. a glass, a mug, a bowl.. filled with milk.  It looked like a giant swimming pool full of milk.  Two bendy straws were bent over the side, representing a ladder to climb up and jump in.  In the middle of the pool, an Orea cookie was floating, just a small edge submerged, in the milk pool.

I really wanted an Oreo cookie.

It was amazing.

Day 2.

Is one blog every day too much?

I'm not sure I'd read a blog that posted every day.

Maybe I would.  I don't know.

Anyway, hi!

Today I worked at the coffeeshop, so I didn't get to spend much time in the studio.  I made it to the post office and to Target, and did some online work, but that's about it.  All day I was thinking about things I'd like to do in the studio.  And then all the things that I could get done if I could work there five days a week.  And how I'd even have the weekend off, every week.

It may not happen for a while, but I'm really looking forward to that day.

While the wax was melting...

Today was very frustrating.  I'm tired, head-achey, and still not back to normal from last weeks crappiness (personal, not Wunder Budder).  I've been at the studio for most of the day, getting really frustrated with pretty much everything I'm doing.  I've written and erased this blog three times (there was a lot of venting and complaining involved), but I'm now remembering why I started this in the first place.

I wanted to write about my first year in business.  The good, the bad, and the melty.  Today was all three.

I originally wanted to write it for anyone interested in the story of Wunder Budder, anyone who is also starting their own business and can maybe learn from my (many!) mistakes, anyone who just likes to read blogs, and for myself.  So far, I've enjoyed the randomness of my blogs, but just a minute ago decided that I'm going to get down to it.

I'm going to write something every day.  Or, at least try to.  Short, long, good, bad, praising the world or venting.

So, there it is.  Today you were spared my icky rantings because I feel like I got it all out, but in the future there will probably be some not 100% positive posts.

I hope you'll keep reading anyway....
