Happy Monday! If you didn’t stop by over the weekend you’ll see I’ve got a buko amount of changes on here going on! I was talking with some of the girls in the Paper Issues team (whom I love to bits!) and we are doing some mutual blog critiques.
I’ve been a little unsure at the direction I wanted to take with my blog since while I still craft and make things I’m doing it less than I used to and I’m back to drawing more and I’m learning more about biz topics that are interesting to me by reading some books and listening to a few podcasts while I’m on the treadmill in the mornings. I was also reluctant to put art up on the blog bc I do a lot of sketches that might not go anywhere or are just for fun and when the all don’t make it to digi I end up getting a ton of flak but the girls pointed out that its my blog and those people will always be around.
So long winded story short, you’ll still see crafty things and copics here but you’ll also see more biz stuff (since Some Odd Girl is my baby :>), art, sketches and general life stuff here. You can see on the right I’ve added some easy to click Featured Posts for those categories too. The Tutorials page above has gotten a makeover too and I still have a few things to finish up here and there Its so much more organized!
The biggest change has to be not in the blog itself but in my attitude towards it. I was really, and still am for the most part, self conscious about putting myself out there and really showing off. The things I draw esp are super special to me and believe it or not, for all my sarcasm and snarky fun I’m shy about the whole “look what I did!” part. I want to come out of the shell so I’m just going to do it!
That’s the biggest reason I changed the header. Besides its updated with my new hair cut its putting the “this is MINE” stamp on the whole thing.
