Ugh, I had this post half written and Live Writer crashed!! Dam program.
I have been swamped. I’m taking two classes right now together (Cultural Diversity and Intro to Graphic Imaging). I thought the graphic class would be easy enough that I could take another class along with it. Well, I failed to think about the workload on the other class…so it’s a bit of a struggle but I am managing.
Confession: I didn’t even turn anything in last week in one of the classes.
Yeah, I’m not managing well. I’m gonna do better though!
I’ve been in a funk. I don’t know what is going on but I’ve just been EXHAUSTED! Like I could fall asleep right this minute if I close my eyes exhausted. But I’m trying to kick myself out of it.
Because of the double school workload and the funk I’ve pretty much been neglecting my household chores, my husband, my life…And change is in order.
So, I’ve rejoined Weight Watchers online. Before we went to Florida I had done it on my own and did pretty good and more importantly, I felt good. I want to feel like that again and Lord knows I could use to lose weight!!!
And in order to keep myself accountable I have made a new blog that I will link on a tab above. I need to design it and get it going first.
I also ordered some materials, so I’m actually waiting until those arrive to start the program. I know, I should start it now…but I’m waiting.
I will post the link when I get started.
How cute are those pears?? Click on the photo to see credit and read about how they were made.
I am excited about this next part!!!
I have been trying to decide on a name for my Web Design site and business for whenever I begin to charge for my work. I original wanted “Purple Pear Web Designs” but that is already taken by a couple people. I had thrown around a few different names and decided on Pear Girl Web Designs.
I got to thinking about the name again recently and decided that I didn’t like that name…even though I registered the domain and have been sitting on it for almost a year…so back to the drawing board I went.
I decided on the name “Joyful Pear Web Designs” and I’ll tell you why. The pear part should be obvious…but the Joyful part is in honor of my Granny. Her favorite word is ‘joy’. If creativity is inherited then she is who I got mine from.
So I registered my new domain and I even designed my logo. Of course I had to design it at that moment…it’s funny because I actually sketched it out, and I don’t draw all that well…but I think it’s lovely. It’s simple.
I will share soon and this, too, will be linked above.
I don’t know when I will begin making sites for profit. I may actually start with making blog themes and go from there. I’ll have to see what happens.
If anyone has any ideas how to get something like this started, please leave me a comment. I’d appreciate any advice!
My poor photoblog has been so neglected!!! And I have forgotten more photos than I have taken. I’m going to try to work this out. Maybe I’ll just take the photos with my cell phone…hmm, that’s an idea.
Will try to start this over soon. I’ll keep ya posted!
Blog re-design is coming soon!
I am trying to get my hands on that Colorful kit below. I emailed the designer, so I’m waiting to hear back. If I don’t hear back soon then I will be on the search for a different kit. I am thinking something purpley and lovely. I dunno though….stay tuned.
