Finally, I am back online with a slightly new site design. I’m quite proud of my tinkering skills in getting the site up and it’s pretty close to how I imagined it from Photoshop. Yay me! So, following this update, I will be working on adding content and continuing with the Deck of Dreams project. The garden is still being nurtured, so there are probably broken links here and there… Feel free to take a look around.
I’ve updated the menu with the mouseover images, so when you roll your mouse over the dirt holes you should get another image showing. Such is the exciting life of the novice web designer. I’ve also fixed the contact forms so now you can submit your dreams/goals and/or contact me. And if that’s not enough, you can also subscribe to receive updates when I revamp or add awesome content to the site or find out the latest on the Deck of Dreams.
“Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress” Now this is something I always need to be mindful of. How do you keep moving forward and not fall into the trap of keeping busy and achieving little. Funny when I’m waiting for something to heat in the microwave , I always manage to get so much done in those 2 minutes. Yet when I have hours to be productive, they fly by without a trace. Perhaps the solution is to be constantly heating things in the microwave… or setting 2 minute […]
So it’s been nearly a year since it’s inception in early 2011. A few stops and starts and it slowly comes to a stand still at the end of 2011 with the dressing of a new splash page. KISS. Keep it simple, stupid. The splash page just has three options, 1) Deck of Dreams, 2) Bipolar Blessing and 3) Contact. I have great plans for Deck of Dreams in 2012 and will be chipping away at the project during the Christmas break. For all you out there who may someday come across these archived pixels of text, Merry Christmas and […]
Okay so it’s not as drastic as it sounds. I was able to reinvigorate the site with swiping headers (the images at the top that keep rotating, in case you’re not familiar with the lingo). Parts of the images were redeemed from a failed project to create and sell Wedding Invitations. I had a lot of artwork which I never thought would see the light of day. Wonderfulment! I am thrilled that I could use them on the site. It’s the small things that excite me. And now on to content and other tweaks around the site. I love being […]
I received the news last week that Deck of Dreams has been funded by the Lord Mayor Clover Moore Salary Trust! It is great news just before Christmas and I am looking forward to sharing the creation process with you all! Needless to say I am very excited and have to give a big thank you to Douglas Holmes, Consumer Participation Officer, St Vincents Hospital, for applying for the funding. I will be working with designers from Breakout Communications to create the physical cards and I am sure they will look amazing! Thank you everyone for your participation and support […]
