New Year… and redesigning my website

Filed under :Uncategorized

Another New Year… and with it comes thoughts about redesigning my website. I haven’t touched it in over a year, when I first started this “work from home freelance designer/illustrator” adventure. As I’m going through my work, choosing the new work to put up, making space to accommodate my first picture book… I’m reflecting on my first year. What a wonderful year 2007 was for me! I am so grateful for all my clients, and all the work that just seemed to fall into my lap. It was really quite amazing. I know that I have learned and grown so much more than what I would have if I was still working in-house at Image Craft. I had obviously learned all that I needed there, and the bankruptcy was my “push” from the Universe. It’s all been very exciting. I’m looking forward to seeing what unfolds in Two-Thousand-GREAT.

So, I’m still working on the website redesign… between other projects given to me by my clients. I’d have had it done by now, but I’ve hit a few html/coding snags… working with tables. I’m so grateful that I have Michael to help me with it. I’d be bald from pulling out my hair. The fun thing is, it was me who TAUGHT Michael how to code HTML waaaaaaay back when I graduated in 1998. And now he’s teaching me. “When the student surpasses the teacher we know the teacher teaches well”. Of course, all his reading and experience coding probably helped too! 🙂 I’m hoping to have the redesigned site up by the end of January but we’ll see. I can never really predict how busy I’m gonna be from day to day. One thing I’ve learned is that life is always an adventure when you’re working on your own.
