Not on my to-do list

Or my idea list, either. But I started doing these today because I found it relaxing. And I didn't have to worry about Roadshow practices or Girl Scout cookie booths or Young Women activities or the young women themselves. Or even my kids, for that matter. Nothing but me, Photoshop, and InDesign, playing with typefaces. I don't care if it's the fad nowadays. I don't care if everyone's doing it. It completely made me happy :)  I will do more again tomorrow when I find the right quotes for each of them.

And another

I am not sure how well this turned out, I haven't looked at it outside of InDesign yet, but as it's after 2 a.m. I'll worry more about that tomorrow. gnight.

yeah, yeah... I'm jumping on the quote bandwagon. But I loved this quote, so I played for a  bit in photoshop and InDesign with it.

Portfolio site

Since I do not feel like learning how to program, I simply created another Blog for my portfolio. The great thing about this is that I can add to it whenever I want. Here, I can post sketches and thoughts, there I will post finished work that I feels reflects my best efforts. There is a whole series of posters I did for the youth that I wish I could post there, but I cannot. With that said, here is my portfolio site now :)  It's simple, but it works.


In other news, I have purchased the 3x3 wood sheets for paintings. I have borrowed the dremel bit kit that I need to texturize the board the way I want it. I've got the housework done to a point I'm ok with leaving it, and am now going to go play in my workshop in the basement with power tools! Off I go to sand, texturize, and stain before I get down to the nitty-gritty of painting.
