For some reason, the nearness of the end of my career has sparked a need to learn new things. Part of my personality has come back: The part that sees something and thinks, "I can so do that!" And, even better, that part of my personality convinces me that I really can do that!
So, in the past few weeks, I've started playing around on the computer again and creating some custom graphic designs:
- My blog's new look: I was bored with the offerings of the prefab backgrounds (no offense!) that Blogger had to offer. A friend started a blog with a super cute background, and I read the code and thought, "I can so do that!" So, I've created this new background - and I even went in and updated the CSS so the headers and dates all match my new color scheme. I also created the headers here as well.
- Mommy cards: Seems like I've always had a business card, so starting the new venture of being a full-time mommy needs its own card. (This is, after all, a full-time job!) And, I've even had 2 orders for customized cards. If you're interested, please let me know! (Obviously those aren't my phone numbers on the card - but you can email me at that address!!!)
- Writing again: My real career started with writing and editing, so I'm returning to those roots more and more. My posts have become longer, and I've had some people inquire about hiring me as a freelance copy writer. Bring it on!
