Rocket Science here?

Whew! I'm whupped! Since Christmas I've spent countless slew of hours upon hours into days, nights building 2 websites...my first one was with homestead which I was fairly pleased with until my brother shared some web hosts he had been looking into...one being wix.com which I fell in love with and begin to get to work...I'll be deleting the one at homestead but if you get to this before I delete it, you can take a peek at http://www.seamlessskin.com


The one that I'm keeping is still not complete but because I've invested so much of my time, time that I'll can never get back, I'm deeming it blog worthy to share at this point.  Go take a peek: Karen R. Davis.  The pages that hold material are home, statement, gallery (sub pages 1 and 2), links (not working yet), contact, and a little bit in news. Nothing has been worked on in Postcards, Monochrome (the "e" doesn't show up on the button), and Poetry Series. 


Even though I worked with a template, it wasn't a simple drop in and click...I had to actually dust off some brain cells and think!  In my down time I focused on finishing up the book, One Hundred Years of Solitude...one of the most intriguing books I've read but also very convoluted.  Every area of humankind is covered in this book for which the author won the Nobel.  From beginning to end a lot of activity takes place on every page...couple this with the difficulty of keeping track of the genealogy of the characters that isn't easy and my mind barely has energy to walk around or open a window in my head to allow a cool breeze to blow through.  My spirit has been delighted though, but my brain is just being snarky, saying things like "so now, i guess you'll try to build a rocket next". 


Well, this sums up the ending and beginning of my old and new year!  If you have any comments, critiques, suggestions, what have you for my website...please let me know by commenting here or using the contact form on the site.


Peace,

  2. I visited and like both! It will be nice when you get all the pages filled.
    If you'd shared that you had a previous life as a social worker, it escaped my Swiss cheese memory. But seeing that on your sites- it helps explain the connection I've felt. Interesting how so many of us social workers are drawn to fiber mediums as a means of expression (and sanity, in my case!)

  3. Wow Karoda, well done. Love the 2nd one even more. I know it's a bunch of work cause I built my own but alas it desperately needs some tender loving care right now.
    Can't wait to see your new website up and running. Way to go!!!

  7. I'm so impressed! I have been so busy building my own blog I've had very little time so far to comment on other people's blogs, but yours is one well worth taking the time to do. I liked you from the first few posts on your blog I saw. You are certainly a multi-talented lady and I'm most impressed by the quilting you're doing. Hang in there on your new site; it's coming together nicely - well done! See you around!
