The Laine Award and other updates in my life...

For the first time since April, I don't have a current design job or project to work on (at this second).  It probably won't last long, but I finished my last job last night.  I've been booked solid since April, so it's a little weird.  But I guess it means I have time to actually blog and write, so there's nothing wrong with that.  :D

Then again, if any of you have been thinking about using my services, now is the time to do it.  

After not designing a single WordPress theme for a client since when I first started my business, I ended up getting 4 WP/branding jobs in the last three weeks, so I'll point out some links:



There's another one I can't post from an author most of you know, but she's still setting it up so it's not ready to share yet. I'm excited to share this one when it's ready.  

I've also just designed the fifth cover in Tara Brown's Devil's Roses series, and I love the way it turned out!


In other news...I've been awarded the Laine Blogger Award from the lovely Jaybird!

The Rules:

1. Answer the questions (the same ones I've answered.)
2. Pass the award along to 5 other bloggers

1. What is your current beauty obsession?

Waxing.  Don't ask where.

2. What is the one beauty item you wish you owned?
It's nothing I wish I owned, so much as I wished I had the time to use one - a flat iron for my hair.

3. What is your favorite topic to read about?  
Anything with college students - hence the whole New Adult thing.

4. What inspired you to become a blogger? 

When I decided to start taking writing seriously (although I'd been doing it for years), I read about author's platforms and decided I better get to it.  :D

5. What nail polish are you wearing now?

None.  I just scrubbed my nails clean last night.  Will probably put on this light purple color polish I won at my local RWA meeting from the raffle today, if I have time.

And while I'm late with this, I just signed up for Alex J Cavanaugh's Genre Favorite's Blogfest for tomorrow.
