Lots of loose ends sticking out of my life these days.
I don't know about you all, but when I start seeing a lot of little UFO's hanging around, I start to get itchy!
This little guy, I still consider to be fairly new. He's a cutie. But, I never should've started on him until I had some other little ditties finished first. I seem to recall some cotton on a tahkli…some handspun that my get ran back through the wheel…a hat that shall ne'er be mentioned ( at least not until I get serious about knitting it). Etc., etc.
These count too.
I never did finish off the fringe on these. So, today, I just put them in bunches and knotted them until I get around to them. Well, I kind of like them on the orangey one. But the striped one…the bunches could go smaller, for sure. It does beat letting Girl Child get to them before I get a chance to stop her though, lol.
So, what has gotten me all tied up lately? Well, besides the fact that Boy Child has realized he is a teenager and proceeded to send our laundry size into the upper stratosphere…and generally keeping up with Girl Child's shenanigans…that site I was telling you about? Yeah, the moment I clicked save on that last post, it went BOOM! Sigh. It's only the mil's busiest month of the year, right?
So, I spent some time getting that back together with support from the hosting service, the theme developer and the CDN company. Then, since I found that I had to deactivate some things to do that, I decided to overhaul the styling.
I like it better. Now that the colors are different, I may swap out for a more prominent logo rather than a watermark-looking one. And I would like to adjust some photos in the slider. Again. AND, I have to put the calendar back together on there. Again. But, I do like it. I added some textures from a free background texture site that makes it look much more polished. Sweet. I still wouldn't call that breakdown a blessing in disguise just yet. But, it's a nice change.
While I was at it, I figured I may as well update my personal site. I still have yet to get any serious drawing or painting done. But, my physical portfolio is still around. I'll know when I'm ready, I guess. In the meantime, I'll just keep it simple and let folks know where they can find me. I will probably get picky and move that navigation over at some point…and change the photos I put on there in the circles to look a little better with the shape. But, it works for now. That's half the battle for a beginner.
There's still the matter of that resolution I set for myself at the start of this year to learn how to make a website with a WP theme. Funny thing about those…when you write them down, it makes it more concrete.
Got some more loose ends to tie up tonight: The natives are getting hungry.
