I decided to start this year with a new skin and a slightly different organization for my blog. Cordonnier mal chaussé we say in French (poorly shod shoemaker): I spend so much time working on other people’s websites that I didn’t feel the urge to spend my evenings modifying mine. But at the same time, it hurt my eyes every time I looked at it. Now it’s almost done; it just needs a few more tweaks. I hope you’ll feel comfortable in this new ride!
The changes are not radically different; I quite like the conventional navigation of this type of blog, but I wanted something that had a bit more “space”. A good category cleanup was also on my to do list, plus a new page “Work” to keep track of what I consider important steps in my creation process.
Apart from programming, when I did sit down at the drawing table, it was to experiment with color and to play around with recycled bits that have been waiting in a box with other leftovers. I had planned to use the leaves in a collage for the DIY iHanna’s postcard swap, but they didn’t fit in. I haven’t found exactly what to do with these, but it was fun to arrange them in various montages.
I know it’s a bit late for this, but I wish you a fantastic 2014! I hope this year will be fulfilling and inspiring.
