Blissful Freedom?

November 1, 2012

So I have to admit that since I have started this website I have begun to love the idea of working for myself more and more (but who wouldn’t right?). It just seems too good to be true, like WAY too good to be true. So today I did my research and I found out that it is a LOT more work than it seems at first, then I commenced panic mode. I was sitting there on my couch thinking to myself ‘A, what the hec have you gotten yourself into!?!’ when it dawned on me, no one said this was going to be easy, and I was naive to think just for a second that it would. It is going to take a lot of work and late nights to achieve what you want. There will be NO instantaneous clients emailing you eager to get your designs. There will be no backlog of work to be done because you are SOO busy. I have to deserve all that, I have to WANT to get there. I have to work hard. Who knew right? Working hard to achieve your goals. It’s a new concept to me (NOT). So this is the challenge for me: I will not gracefully bow out when it gets hard, I will work my butt off to make this work! And I will most definitely apply myself and never quit because it gets ‘too hard’. This will be my challenge to myself from here on out, and I will stick to it!

Every Cloud has a Silver Lining

Every Cloud has a Silver Lining

This photo was taken at one of my girl friends vacation home a couple of summers ago. It was only SLIGHTLY tampered with, but all that light filtering through the clouds was all natural. It was an absolutely amazing photo-op.

Finally, I’ve decided to set up a website!!

October 24, 2012

So I must be a little slow here… it seems that everyone has a website or a blog and they aren’t even professionals. Oops, I guess I just underrated my gifts and talents that I was blessed with and have finally decided to put them to good use!

Since we are BOTH new here, let me tell you a little bit about me. My name is A., thats all, just A. Only to keep things simple. I live on a farm, but that doesn’t mean I’m behind when it comes to technology 😉 I have 2 brothers and a sister, a wonderful boyfriend plus 3 dogs and a cat! Things are quite a zoo here sometimes. But no joke I have the best family who have inspired me to use my talents and abilities to their maximum capacity. That is why I am here. To serve you!

I am a free-lance graphic designer who loves her job too much to make it an official job. I would rather ‘hobby shop’ it and use it as a second income so I can maintain my love for it. I am also an ASPIRING photographer trying to slowly build a portfolio. I say aspiring, because I very much disagree with this notion that as soon as you have a nice camera or can take a pretty picture that you can call yourself a photographer, but that is a topic I will more than likely be delving in later on.

I will be posting new designs, latest jobs, and some inspirations I come across in numerous hours on my lovely Lynal (I had to name my laptop since I spend so much time with it). I want to share my love of graphic design with you guys and hopefully you feel the same way about sharing my designs with your friends!

Well, happy dreams everyone.

Its getting kind of late *cough* early

Until next post,
