Okay, so there’s not really such a “thing” but I’ve declared it so and since you’re now reading this on the internet, it’s got to be true!
Like many of us, I have the best of intentions for the “real” New Year but by Mid January, those resolutions turn into guilty reminders of what I have failed to follow through in “recreating” myself for the upcoming year. For me, the 2nd New Year celebration is a second chance to get it right.
The biggest change is in my new website. A HUGE thank you to Tim Hill and Mary Hughes, one of his team members, at Blue Box Creative .
Tim is a genius and created my first website and logo. He and I are college chums and he has been my #1 cheerleader, and hand holder, in getting my business off the ground. He was quick to come to the rescue when I essentially dismantled my website in the hope that I could create a new look. Did you know that you can break the internet?! So, that may not be the technical term, but as it turns out, it’s much better for all involved to call on the experts at a time of such lunacy. This is a hard lesson learned for a type A, “I want to do it all” sort of gal, but if frees up your mind and energy to work on what you’re best at doing. In my case, that’s most definitely NOT the internet. Then there’s the whole “you’re just more pleasant to live with” thing, as my hubby can attest to from this experience.
Because the dragonfly is a very important symbol to me, I simply could not leave it out of the design. Mary had the brilliant idea to make it from the paisley that was on the other end of the logo. I’m pretty sure that she had no idea the Pandora’s Box that would open for them. If you can imagine their patience (and probably some head banging against the wall action going on), as I LITERALLY cut and pasted pieces of paper to send them an idea of what I wanted.
Tim would work is magic and this is an example of just how far he was willing to go to make it just so.
There are a lot of exciting changes going on with Simply Sensational Style. One of the most exciting changes is teaming up with Frilly Simple this year. If you follow along on my Instagram or Facebook pages you’ve seen little hints here and there of the changes to come and they will begin to roll out into the fall.
Until then, if there is anything that you’d like to see or know more about regarding fashion, please comment on this post, my Facebook page or send me a note. Thank you again to Tim & Mary for all of their hard work, please feel free to poke around and see all they’ve done here. If you need a web design, they are most definitely the people to see!
