Moved In!

I realize that this is supposed to be a blog about design and design related, and I have about a hundred of those ideas and concepts always sort of running around in my head. Right now, I'm thinking about a card for a friend, working on updates for my website, and trying to still find work in the field.

But a designer is still a person, unless the designer is some sort of monstrous, cyberman built for the creation of brilliant and eye catching visuals. *shudder* As I am still just a normal person, I'm sucked into the torrents of other cares and concerns that, despite my best efforts, sometimes override my base needs to just design the world.

One such torrent: having to move.

The infrequency of my updates (which will change!!) has suffered terribly because of this, because the last two weeks have been just caught up in everything else. Last weekend I moved everything into my new place, then took off as soon as the truck was empty to stay with a friend and do some freelance work. YAY FREELANCE WORK!! This weekend I started finally settling in, unpacking boxes while simply moving around far too many others.

That being said, I still love this, I'm still thinking about it, and I promise regular updates from now on, even if they are simple musings because I've decided to stay up until 12:35 in the morning hoping that this last, "Say Anything" style gesture will keep the readers here.

Thanks for reading.

An Overdue Update

My apologies dear readers.

There have been many things going on in the background around here that directly relates to me, my designs, and ultimately my future. I'd like to keep this blog about my ideas of design and the things that I create, but suffice it to say I've been a little preoccupied as of late, and will probably be a little occupied into the immediate future.

Design notes:
- I am still using the design briefs off of the freelance site I mentioned before to generate some new ideas. I'll throw a few of the concepts at the end of the post as well.

- I'm working on an official website for a friend's business. Things are moving this a little slow on my end, but I'll work it all out!

- I am now more considering something in terms of a specialized home business, probably with greeting cards, and things of the like. I'm looking into that today. Wish me luck :)

And now, as promised, designs!

Thanks for reading!
