Today, is a VERY exciting day! Ink A Dink Designs, now has a " .com" after it! It is officially starting to come together. I have been working my tail off to complete the site, to the point where I think it's okay to publish it. When will it be complete....never. Is this THE design...for now. What can I say? I'm a designer, I get bored QUICKLY...hence the white background, so I can at least change up my logo as I see fit, in a timely manner. Not to mention, my design preference, is all over the bored. I love vintage, I love mod, I love clean and streamlined, I love shabby chic....it is what it is...a beautiful modge podge of eye catching interests, embellishments, and techniques, so again I say...it will never be complete!
That is one reason I love designing, especially for special occasions. I can change my mind at the drop of a hat, edit, and build to my hearts content. There are times when I like a design, and I keep it for awhile, and then later, I revamp it. It is amazing how a few techniques and changes, can impact a design in a completely different way. Just as when you are decorating a room, each accent piece brings new life.
I have an honest appreciation for those of us who do creating on a small scale, from our own "studios." We aren't out to mass produce, and design, just for the profit. We do what we do, with a passion, and connect with our clients in a completely different way. It can easily become all about the numbers, as so many things can, and it is important to keep a level head on your shoulders, and not lose your vision. I personally have a deep love for etsy, I have corresponded with so many wonderful people, that are there doing the same thing that I am. We just want to keep our sanity, and do our thing. To each his own, in this loving and artistic community. Which is how I often like to live my life, to each his own. I wouldn't enjoy working for a high corporate entity, where I wasn't free to be who I am, and do what I do. I don't seek things out to "harsh my mellow," so I know, I wouldn't last long doing anything but, what I am doing.
I LOVE that I can be apart of peoples events, because, it's not just a birthday party, and it's not just a baby shower, it's setting the tone, for memories. Which to me, is a VERY important part of living. I could not be more grateful to have been able to be a part of so many peoples lives in the last year that I have started this venture, even if it's for something, as small, or HUGE, as what they are planning.
So a big thank you, to all who have supported my artistic heart, and i hope you enjoy the new Ink A Dink Designs.com
