It is one of the things I just have to be in the mood to do. I've got to be "on fire" to do it actually or really inspired, or really embarrassed about the state of things. Or board. And It is all happening at once for me right now. I'm talking about web site upkeep and design. I LOVE a bit of good graphic design and I'm not the best graphic artist so I rely heavily on my dear heart to keep me focused and uncluttered in my design. I'd been updating the "Day of the Dead" pages of the website with more hand painted beads and color options and the dang thing kept crashing the program so that decided it for me! I have tooooo much on one page! It was too cluttered and I don't think people really knew just how many options and items there were. So I've split them up and given them a more space. It feels special again!
This is the new main "Day of the Dead" page. I've sectioned bits of it off as links to the various areas. Beads, Pendants, Charms and Connectors each have their own page now. I'm going to model this necklace/page link design on the rest of the site. I'm even thinking of asking for people to send me their projects that have used the pendants and give jewelry designers a bit of publicity as well as a bit of inspiration. It is in the beginning stages of design but thought I'd throw that idea out there. If you have an opinion about it please drop a comment in!
