{life lately} a crazy month

Wow, it’s been really busy.  To be totally honest, I think I bit off more than I could chew.  I’ve started too many projects at once and it’s made for a very crazy month.  I’m revamping BOTH of my websites, mocking up new products, re-organizing my studio, and tending to a sick kitty.  I had set my goal to have everything done by February 1st, but I’m now thinking it may be a bit longer.  I should have taken it one thing at a time, but I was feeling ambitious.  I can’t believe that I thought I was going to finish all of this in one month… hahahaha.  I’m still working hard to get as close to my goal as possible, and I can’t wait to share the updates!

So, the reason why I’m revamping both of my sites is because I’m feeling a bit stale and there’s a lack of inspiration on my part.  I need something new and fresh to make me fall in love with blogging again.  It’s been really busy with my day job and I found myself letting my blog slip.  I mean, I haven’t even been taking my camera out and about, so i have no new photos to share.  Why on Earth would I do that?!  This is what I love and I can’t lose my passion.  With the revamp I’ve promised myself that I’ll be more consistent in blogging for both you and I.  This is important to me and I need to show that.

Right now you might be asking yourself, what other site is she revamping other than Chickiedee?!  Well, I started another website (before Chickiedee) right out of college when I was looking for work where I started freelancing my graphic design services.  Even though I found a job, I’ve still been accepting clients throughout the years.  It wasn’t until recently that I decided to narrow my focus to my own niche – The Creative Small Business.  The site is appropriately named A Beautiful Brand and there I will share everything that I’ve learned about building my Creative Small Business from the ground up.  I’ll share my experiences of what’s worked and what hasn’t.  I really want the handmade community to grow and stay beautiful.  I’ve owned and run Chickiedee Handmade for nearly 7 years now, so in that time I’ve learned a lot.  A Beautiful Brand is a great resource for anyone either thinking of starting a Creative Small Business or someone who’s already in the thick of it.  I can’t wait to share it with you!

So, I’m working hard to get everything wrapped up and I want to thank you all for reading and for helping me hold myself accountable.  Oh!  I’m super excited to share a home project that I just wrapped up and I’m going to feature my own studio soon!
