My creative mojo's 
making a return!

I can't be more grateful to Penny for hiring me to revamp her blog.  It seems to have kicked in my creativity and got me out of this grouchy ass slump I have been in for the last few forevers.  And her timing couldn't have been better - I was literally down to less than a dollar to my name.  Of course, the bulk of it is already spent - but that's the way the dick dangles in today's world.  Her new blog design has generated tons of interest - an inordinate amount that really surprised me - so perhaps I can get some more work from it.

I had such fun creating her design.  She really just asked in passing, and didn't give me a whole lot to go on.  I just used her vibe and energy and ran with whatever came to mind.  Turns out she loved the spec - and, for the most part, that inital maybe became the design you now see.  Didn't have to do a whole lot of changes to the initial idea at all.  She's happy with it and I am more than thrilled.  It's one of my favourite designs of late by far.

I am working on creating a pseudo-portfolio over on Tumblr with some of my design work so that I have somewhere to refer folks to for examples of what I do.  I also ginked my own blog up a little bit - added a third column and a little marquee with the four most current blogspot designs - but it seems to have a mind of its own (the marquee, that is) and runs any which way it wants to...  Will have to look at it and see if I can't figure out that the deal is with it - but it's kind of entertaining to see what in the slappy happy wet ass it's doing now...  Yeah, I'm easily amused.

Anyway...  That's my Saturday and its words of six today.  It's been one hell of a week - for everyone it seems.  Curious to see what the rest of y'all are sixin' today.


p.s. Why is great spelled great but grateful is not spelled greatful???
