52 Weeks of Color :: Week 15

15b

I stayed up late last night to see the blood moon eclipse first hand, and I’m totally paying for it this morning. I mean, head pounding, eyes bleary, just want to go back to sleep paying for it. At the time, I thought I’d wake up refreshed (ha!) and redo this week’s palette with blood moon colors, but nope. Can’t deal, so candy colors it is.

Pounding head aside, I’ve got a random question for you. I’m writing a new ebook geared towards blogging for business. Would you be willing to answer a few questions about what pains you when it comes to blogging? If you leave me a comment, I’ll contact you directly! Or, if you’re feeling bold, do you mind leaving a comment letting me know what you struggle with?

Thank you!

 

52 Weeks of Color :: Week 14

It’s been a good week. I’ve got my new site mostly done; there are still a few little tweaks to do, but I’d love it if you want to pop over and say hi. That’s where I’ll be talking about creative business topics for artists who sell online.

I revamped the focus of my mailing list, too, which feels good. I’ve got loads of ideas to share with my subscribers, which feels even better.

The weather is beautiful, and new leaves are on the trees, bringing a lovely shade of lime green to the neighborhood. The skies are blue, the temps are warm, and I wore something other than pants for the first time in months last week.

How are you doing?

 

52 Weeks of Color :: Week 13

Happy April 1st!

I love April. I love spring, and the warmer weather that is supposedly going to stay around (I’ve heard that before, weathermen, promises, promises).

I’m also excited because I finally get to share my new color ebook with you! It’s called Arranging Color, and features 485 color schemes in 123 pages. It’s loverly, if I do say so myself, and inspired today’s color palette. For all of the details about it, click on over here.

Are you as excited for April as I am?

 

52 Weeks of Color :: Week 12

This past week has been craziness for me. I’m working on my new site, and DIYing my brand identity for it has been challenging. I think being your own client is always tricky, even more so when you can’t articulate to yourself what you want!

But pushing myself helped, and late Monday night, after what feels like forever (but was in actuality 10 days), I made a breakthrough. It was amazing to feel that “click” when things fell into place. Know what I mean? I’m able to move forward on all the other little pieces now, and soon, I’ll be able to share what I’ve been working on.

Before I do that, I’ve got a couple of details/deadlines to pass on.

First, Blurb, the on-demand printing company I use to offer a paper copy of Understanding Color, will be changing the way they print the format that I use, and I’m not sold on the changes. As unfortunate as it is, I’ll be pulling the print version in a couple weeks. This happened pretty suddenly, so I apologize for not giving you more notice.

My suggestion is that if you’d like a printed copy, order one through Blurb before April 9th, which is when the new format will be introduced. I’d like to keep offering a paper version, but switching to a traditional book format requires a complete revamp that I just don’t have time for right now. After April 9th, only the digital ebook will be available for the foreseeable future.

I would like to redo the print version and maybe offer it up on a bigger marketplace like Amazon one day, but I don’t have a timeline on that – it’s murky, at best.

The second is just a reminder that I’m retiring my mini classes and calendars next Monday, not just here but in my Etsy shop, too. If you want one, grab it now. I know, I’m a bundle of good news today, aren’t I?

 

Quick list of deadlines:

March 31st: Last day to order a mini class, calendar, or planner

April 1st: My new color ebook will be launched!

April 9th: Last day to order a print copy of Understanding Color through Blurb

 

So… how’s your week gone?

 

 

52 Weeks of Color :: Week 11

This week’s color palette was inspired by Skittles.

Just kidding. Sort of.

It’s been another crazy start to the week, though this time it’s my brain that’s full of questions I’m searching answers for. As I work on my new site (oh yes, a new site is coming), I’d love to know a few things from you, if you have some time? I’ve got a 7 question survey right over here. It’s anonymous, and will only take a few minutes (unless you want to give really detailed questions, and if that’s the case, have at it, I welcome long responses!).

Can you help me out? I appreciate you!
