Well I am done with my camping weekend and back to work. It was so much fun, I didn’t want it to end. Spent the day yesterday with Dr Jude at The Wellness Cottage. Y’all check out my personal health and weight-loss/wellness blog on her site at The Chocolate Moose Blog.
She has started me on a new weight loss progam that is very strict. We’ll see if I can do it. I don’t do strict very well. LOL. But I’ll talk about that over there!
This week I am adding a new rental listing to the Doe Run Lodging website. And then designing a rack card with the owners of the cabin rental tomorrow morning. Yay! New Rack cards! New Rentals. Love it!
Will also be finishing up the web project for Frank at Rockwood Manor.
Not to mention I have to get somewhere with that Blue Ridge Host Brochure, because my mother, who is sitting here beside me at Chestnut Creek Coffee House in downtown Galax finally adding content to her site, Penelope’s Art, is ready for me to get started on the reincarnation of The Big Blue, which we are calling the Mountain Traveler’s Journal. So much to do so little time to do it in.
Oh my, I am on cloud nine right now. About 2 weeks ago, I decided I would just forget about trying to find a boyfriend and just focus on my work. I think I hit a eureka moment….redesigning my own website. Finding all kinds of cool plugins to incorporate facebook, twitter, and my pics from facebook…social networking, photos and blogs oh my! Anyway, I haven’t been this excited since I had Lacy…course I was more scared and in pain then…okay haven’t been this excited since I lost my first tooth in kindergarten and thought the tooth fairy would bring me riches beyond belief!
I am rejoicing today as I am closing in on the finale of the great big Blue Ridge Host brochure development. Was hoping to get to print by end of this week but I should have known better. Always takes longer than I suspect.
In other design news, I created an initial design for the Rockwood Manor Bed and Breakfast website yesterday. Still have not heard from Frank, the owner, whether he likes it or not, but I am crossing my fingers cause I think it is just fantastic. And besides, I spent 5 hours creating a flash banner for it!!
Today my dad is taking me to Winston Salem for Father’s Day. How cool is my dad, huh! It’s his day and he and Beverly (step mom) are taking me out! I think he really just wants to take me for a ride in his new truck. It is HUGE HUMONGOUS.
Don’t know if you noticed or not, but I updated the graphics on my website. Now it is just really cool. And so totally matches my business cards.
I am so happy to report I have been designing graphics here in Southwest VA since about 2003. And even in this down economy, seems like my loyal friends come back to me….life is very nice professionally. Although sometimes I wish there was more I could accomplish. Perhaps I will someday.
Well, next week, it’s time to put a new restaurant’s menu design to bed, update Doe Run Lodging website, and finish out the Blue Ridge Host brochure. And I promised Stevie Barr as soon as I got done with HOST that I would help him with his search engine work for his new site, PickandGrinMusic.com.
That’s all for now!
Spent the day in Dublin VA working with Frank who owns Rockwood Manor. We are converting his site to wordpress. Finishing up the graphics tonight after the baby goes to bed. I say “the baby,” but my daughter is 5 on the fourteenth. Can’t believe it! So tomorrow I am heading out to Major Grahams Mansion with Stevie Barr to work on the Spooky World website. Big haunted fun times coming in October. Also finishing up the Blue Ridge Host brochure Friday, Monday and Tuesday. That big 20″x27″ has been a long time coming.
