An old tagline, and a new pattern.

The website continues to take form, and I’m digging the current minimalist WordPress Theme (at the time of this writing, it is Minimous by Andrew Thompson). Thanks to a timely thread over in the Designers group on Ravelry, I’ve just learned about imbedding Google Fonts, so you should be reading this in “Oxygen” under “Quicksand”.. hm, that’s a funny combination now that I notice it!

Today has been a mostly awesome day – delightful customers at work, joyful fun at hooping class, and discovering that not only has the Fall 2013 issue of Twist Collective gone live, but the photos of my design Penta are awesome, AND ALSO one was chosen for the cover image!!!

And that old tagline I mentioned?  You can see it right now, up there under my name…

These were my first business cards, the layout, design and printing gifted to me by my lovely sister Heather when she was working in a newspaper office doing graphic design and business stuff. (She’s much happier now as an electrician keeping a large production wood mill running day and night!)  I didn’t have a specific job, but I really liked making things, and I wanted a card that would cover it all.

In redesigning this website, I’m bringing all of my various trades and talents back into one place, and I need something to describe what I am about and what I do.

Creativity (mostly unlimited) still works.

 

PS – curious about the logo on that old card? It is based on a vine design that my longest-friend Paul used to draw on my face when we’d go dancing at an alternative/goth nightclub years ago… and I have that X, with vines and hearts and all, tattoo’d to the left of my bellybutton, almost as big as my hand. Loved it then, love it still!
