I gave myself a To Do List for my winter break. Does anyone find To Do Lists helpful?
I tend to actually finish things when I have a list. Right now, I have finished 4 out of 6 items, which is pretty good for me! One of the major things on my list was updating my site. I revamped the academic portfolio section with a new landing page and added in my recent classes. I learned how to work with videos on a website during class, and I am so excited to be able and apply it with my own work.
My other major list item was to bake (or in the end buy) cupcakes for my birthday week in February. I usually create the whole week around my birthday and have a party everywhere I go with balloons and cake. It is fun to bring the celebration too people that I wouldn’t normally see on the actual day!
Pinterest has been something I have really utilized the past few days for cupcake recipes and other items I am interested in making/baking. – pinterest.com/pamd1
Here is a sneak peak of my side project (not posted on my to do list).
I have finally taken the time to re-upload wordpress and use it as a permanent blog. This blog will be used as a way to keep track of my work as I update my website and keep everyone updated on my journey through life.
On that note, I am busy revamping my website in a big way. I have decided with my coming of age in the next month that this website needed to be turned into something that would be worth showing to potential bosses and clients.
I have begun this process by creating a splash page when you come to the main site. This gives the user a clear view of what I can do and where they can go in the site. I am currently working on the About Pam section. This will have an overview of myself, artist statement, and why I chose artsypam.com. I will also list my information for other sites I use and how to contact me.
That is what I have on paper right now. I am trying to focus on just these things before moving on to anything else on my site.
I know my next goal is to learn how to make my own wordpress layout. I may need to employ a few hours on google to figure this one out!
