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!
