The Journey Home
The journey to create my new website is complete and I am thrilled for the big reveal! My new "home" online is a place I hope you will enjoy visiting for inspiration, education and encouragement.
Read about how it all came together as we celebrate!
A new website
When I set out to update and redesign my website, I had an idea of what I wanted. The process is a creative one and I followed some of the guidelines out there that would help make the process a smooth one. But, I also wanted to break out of the norm and truly make my site feel like "me" and my personality.
I started by creating a mood board on Pinterest. This really helped me get an idea of the colors, fonts, patterns and icons that I was drawn to. Interestingly, these ended up being the same as those found in my own artwork.
Next, I set out to choose my colors, fonts and design my logo. Once completed, I created my branding board.
Too Close to see
Sometimes we are just too close to something...so close that we can't see. I felt that way about my new website. It was time to bring in a fresh perspective. I found that in Chelsea with 23&9 Creative. She took my branding board and my wish list and designed the perfect website for "me!" She truly captured exactly what I wanted and I so thankful!
"You're awesome, Chelsea! Not only as a designer but as a person and I'm so glad I found you!"
Thanks so much for all the support and encouragement you have sent my way over the last few months. There has certainly been a lot of changes.
For years, I have been helping makers and artists just like you with the tech side of starting a business and sharing their art online. Now, I am stepping out of the shadows to make this a reality for everyone.
I am calling it Maker's Tech U and if you have been searching for creative solutions to your technology challenges, this is for U! In an ever-changing social media landscape, assisting you with the tech hurdles so you can put your art out into the world with ease, efficiency and confidence is my goal.
Maker's Tech U is a membership site format designed to help you get the most out of the training. A variety of topics will be covered, with new content added regularly. With access to me via a private group, you will be able to ask questions and get help and support from me as well as your peers.

I have a passion for helping other makers and artists to overcome those tech hurdles and I hope you will join me!
Makers' Tech U is where makers master the tech!
