I am not one to set New Year’s resolutions but there is something I enjoy with a new beginning, or looking ahead at a new year with 365 blank pages to fill. For me, I love a clean slate, the chance to explore uncharted territories, start something new, and mix things up a bit. As I welcome in 2014, I begin by launching my new website.
If this is your first visit here, Welcome! The website launch that I did several years ago displayed my current work that I had completed and gave me my first online presence. Since then, the focus and direction of my work has changed. With that in mind, I think it is a good time to hit the “reset button". That is exactly what I have done with my new site.
Why a new site? Well, it accomplishes several things for me personally. First, I decided to rename my site so that I could include my name as an artist. Second, I wanted to give my site a new look to reflect who I am in the world of Fiber Art. Last but not least, my site is designed around a new platform that I was not using before. This platform allows me to be “hands on” behind the scenes adding new content, or changing the appearance of pages if and when I want to. I have directed visitors from my old site to find me here.
The goals I have are to post on my Journal page at least twice a month, sharing what I am currently working on, and my creative process. I want my posts to be relevant about my craft, have lots of photos and share visually what is new. I also incorporated the social media aspect on my site this time around to give my readers a chance to share or follow along with me on other sites where I enjoy all things creative.
I am excited to begin work in my studio this year! I have several projects that I have been mulling around in my head and I have been sketching these ideas in my design journal. I have hopes that they will become a reality and look forward to begin the design process to see where they lead me. One theme that I see going forward opposed to last year, is that I will be creating a series of smaller works, and or a compilation of smaller parts that will work together. Before I share my current work, I will spend the next couple of posts reviewing some of the pieces I completed last year that can be found in the New Work Gallery.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you here in the coming months, and I wish you all a wonderful, happy, and creative New Year!
