ffffound it again...

Thank you Alex for sharing this site with me (and Nicole)... It's one that is usually blocked at work when I take my blog-breaks, but we have free-range now (!) We are our own administrators:) so I will be checking out a lot more now. I guess they have so many contributors that they will get three new pages of posts every day.

We traded Art Trading Cards and I will try to get some pictures of those posted... they are really cool and unique. I might rotate like collections through a shadow box... it would be like an ever changing gallery show on my wall!

good quote

I'm actually in class, but wanted to put this quote up... for my future reference (I need all the inspiration and guidance I can get!):

IF "garden"

I am using my old illustrations like modular building blocks... oh what fun:) I have (obviously) been in love with these flowers (they are all over my web-site)... and these green garden illustrations fit the bill for this weeks Illustration Friday theme to the tee; my container "garden." I killed two birds with one stone and worked on this in class this last Saturday. We are making artist trading cards to trade with one another; very fun, I can't wait... maybe I will scan my favorite to share next week!

check it out, now!

Colleen said I could give this link out... so if you want to see what I've done so far, click here! It is a work in everything.

I think I am going to make more of a portal out of the default page and move all the "about me" stuff onto an "about me" page. But for now, to get it in for grades this is where it will stay. I am so excited:) I thought it would take me a long time to get my own site up and now all I have to do is get my url and choose a web hosting service (I've heard is good and cheap, but seems to have some good packages... I think I'll research it a bit more).

my website (?!!)

I'm sooooo excited:) My website will be done in just a couple of months! It has been years in the coming... I am finally taking a class at UAS and learning a lot and getting a lot out of it. Colleen Mckenna is really great and knows her stuff.

Here are two screen shots; I will post the link when I get them all done and choose a web server. I am not a flowery person, so I'm sure this site will change when I get tired of the flowers. The flowers are from a sketch I did in 2006, so maybe I will change it up with another sketch that I will develop and then I can do that every 6 months or a year. Yes, it will be a site with an identity crisis... But the navigation and content will stay consistent (I know not to alienate people... but I've got "itchy designer" syndrome.

I'm also just putting my slideshow up until I can find the time to do a really well designed flash gallery. I could do a poorly designed one using PhotoShop, but I would rather take the time and get it right... So, I'm cheating for now.
