winter time business or is it busy-ness?

I've been incredibly busy since the onset of December. Since Iv'e been finishing up the fall semester at Ivy Tech Community college in Indianapolis, There are of course those dreaded finals. Part of that responsibility was an online portfolio site for myself. Ohhh. Really? Do work for myself? Wow. That threw me. I always have at least a glimmer of an idea when working up something for a client. In fact, I usually have an overflow of ideas, but when thinking of something for myself I was at somewhat of a loss. What do I like? How should I portray myself? OMFG! I've got to edit 20years work of design work and decide what the heck to post! After taking a good hard look at what I've had stored, I found a few more recent pieces to showcase, but by NO means all of my compiled work. This will be an ongoing effort.
You can see the results of this week of cramming for a final project here. I've also created a website for my friend, Lee Ann Hutson, and her business Always Laugh Creations.
She and her husband, Daryl, are entrepreneurs who also happen to drive my children to school. She's an amazing basket maker and creates some of the most delicious smelling soy candles I've ever had the pleasure of being around. My favorite is Hillbilly homebrew!
I serve on a local non-profit board for the Montgomery County Leadership Academy. Part of that responsibility has been to update the current website for this tiny non-profit. This has given me the opportunity to use my newly honed dreamweaver skills on their website too. All this on top of getting ready for the holiday season has been keeping me extremely busy. Now... back to knitting.
