As you can see, I changed the layout in the my blog. I’m still trying to figure of how to add a link to my online shop and vice versa. As well as setting up a gallery of items that I am selling and what I had made. I am also debating whether or not, to change the photo banner above.
I watched You-Tube videos just before going to bed. Beside learning new techniques and getting inspire for upcoming projects, it drains my smart phone so I can plug it and have it fully charge in the morning.
One of the channels that I watched is Vickypgr, https://www.youtube.com/user/vickypgr . She is an expert on paper piecing and makes wonderful cards. Her photo banner is a field of daisies. The questions is if I replace the photo, what do I replace it with? I have to come up with a photo that combines knitting, crochet, and cards. At this moment, I am more concern of getting the links working.
I do know two computer experts that I can asked. One of them lives in the USA and she has a crazy work schedule where we can only leave email messages to each other. The second one lives in the same town as I do, but he is going through some personal issues which I am giving him some space and time to deal with them. So I will keep tinkering.
My schedule is another thing that I am still tweaking. Like when I do make things for Original Things, myself and charities like Operation Write Home. I decide that the odd days like May 5th, 7th, and 11th, I will work on things for Original Things. And the even days, will be for the other. Why?
Two reasons mostly. I only made 3 or 4 scarves and a hat for myself. For years, I swore that I am going to make myself a pair of slippers and finish the blanket. And years later, my feet are still cold and the blanket is still in pieces. So I am going to see if this schedule works.
My second reason is that everything for Original Things is made in a smoke free environment. And I do prefer everything I make in a smoke free environment. But I can frebreeze my slippers if I have to. Two people in my life at this moment are smokers and one of them happens to be my boyfriend. When we hang out, I can’t knit or crochet. He tells me it is a good thing because I need a break. And he gives himself cancer at the same time. I’m still scratching my head at his explanation.
But when we watch a movie, or go on a road trip where he is drives, I find myself fidgeting in my seat. I need a project to keep me distract while we are on our road trip.
Besides slippers and a blanket, one of my best friend asked me to crochet her a dragon. Then there are the Christmas presents. And yes, I know it is May, but say for example, I want to knit a sweater for my dad, it will take time to knit. And I not going to be pulling all nighters working on it.
So the tweaking continues.
