burnin' up the keyboard

I have been working on my computer a lot lately so now my wrist hurts. I have been busy, busy doing design work on a number of projects. I made some custom blog banners for the winners of my give away. Dede decided to get a matching Etsy banner too and I love how they turned out. It was so much fun and very inspiring to be able to pick some of her images to use.

My other winner, Monica, has yet to get back to me on the proof I sent her so I am waiting to hear back until I show it off. Seeing Dede's banner reminded Karin that she needed my services as well. Karin went for the whole shebang and is now the proud owner of business cards (2 designs) and an etsy banner for her new shop and a watermark image. She is using a Microsoft product so we need to figure out how she can use the image on her pix. She said I can show off my creations and she will be blogging about them tomorrow, so I will only preview a couple and you can go visit her to see the rest.

In addition to these things I have been working on some projects for my Mom. They aren't nearly as exciting unless you like garlic because it is some new promotional material for her business. I DID decide that I liked playing with Dede's photos so much that I did make a banner for fun out of images from Shosh's flickr.

Finally, as far as the digital work goes, Hope has found some time on her schedule and is finally working on my NEW website. I needed some help with the templates and she is allowing me to get a little more hands on so I can brush up on my coding and HTML. There are no teasers yet but hopefully I will have something fun to show off like Melfie did HERE. Oh, and speaking of Melfie, she and I did a little swap. I know she got what I sent her so I can share it here. (I don't think I did before) I made her a blank journal with the techniques I learned in Pam Garrison's class at ArtFest. I loved doing it and want to make more.. I just need more paper!
