Loving this new print of mine that is for sale at Decorative Arts in Vero Beach and on ETSY!  This is great for a gallery wall to give it a different balance!

wise words of breanna rose

In ideas on September 11, 2013 at 1:13 pm

This is all from a blogger I follow Breanna Rose

After receiving several emails inquiring about blogging platforms, I thought I would create a post for bloggers discussing the subject. While I highly suggest hiring a designer to create your own custom design, I realize that isn’t always in everyone’s budget from the get go, so I’m writing this from the perspective of template usage. The first thing you will need to do is decide which service you’d like to use for publishing. While there are many out there, the two that I always recommend are SquareSpace and WordPress ( self-hosted ). Their ease of use and support are what make them winners in my book, but I’ll dive more into them both below.

While I personally use WordPress, let’s start with SquareSpace ( SS ). Because if I hadn’t already paid for 2 years of hosting, I think I would switch over to SS sooner than later. You see, the thing that has always captured my attention with SS is their beautiful user interface. It’s much easier on the eyes and as a designer, I’ve definitely taken notice. Plus, they have several meticulously well designed templates that you can choose from and customize ( drag + drop style ), all of which do not require any HTML/CSS knowledge. A definite plus for beginners! Ultimately, you would receive a free domain name, an easily editable template, and a very secure website. It’s an all inclusive package that will leave you worry free.

new prints

In decorative arts, i made this on September 11, 2013 at 1:03 pm

I was without a car for a tiny bit of the weekend which forced me to clean & work, work, work (because you won’t see me walking anywhere in Orlando).   Friday night without a car I found myself sobbing on the phone to my Mom proclaiming “… and I don’t even have a car and all I want is a bottle of wine!” She quickly reminded my pathetic excuse of a proclamation  that it would literally be done the next day.  Le sigh  – I just worked on website landing pages & made these pretty new prints for a wholesale order I received a few weeks ago!    They are the newest ones I’ve created  and I’m super duper happy with them!frames_2 frames_4 frames_6

I have a few favorite Instagrams that I LOVE when they post photos.  I look forward to their daily posts because they are just so darn beautiful and inspiring!  I wanted to share a few people with you … urbanic paper boutique, bonnie Tsang, DesignLoveFest, and Knees on leaves.  Knees on Leaves is a new biz created by Vero’s own, Katie O’ Dare, and quote me on this one – it’s going to take off so contact her while you can for a terrarium (I already did!)

Dec Arts Photo Shoot

In i made this on May 13, 2013 at 1:01 pm

I finally got to use my new camera over the break!  We had a photo shoot for some new lines that came into Decorative Arts Apparel so we found an amazing piece of property owned by Jann Jerkins and her husbamd!  It was so beautiful and sprinkle of  great expectations ambiance which was such a dreamboat! We had champagne and a grand time!  The girls were so beautiful!  It was just an overall great day!

mistakes // 01

In i made this on April 9, 2013 at 4:00 pm

I was researching online and came across this article on readership and it inspired me write a little blog on mistakes!  I make them often and it’s embarrassing but I know I will continue to make them throughout my career!  My mind is racing all day long between freelance, school and Waldo’s Secret Garden!  I wish I could say I stop and concentrate on one project but I usually have 20 tabs open multi-tasking like a mad man!  Anyways, there’s a specific publication in Vero Beach that I had issues with for months maybe even a full year (yikes)! I’m talking like I got e-mails multiple times a day “ Charlotte this is still wrong”, ” Charlotte you’re not doing it right” Charlotte Charlotte Charlotte! ha!  My fault the whole time I was saving a file wrong but finally about two months ago it occurred to me that I needed to speak to the graphic designer on their team because from what I knew I was doing everything right on my end.  Situation is fixed now, they just needed a different file type (simple!) but still when I think back on it I cringe!  I was about to give up doing the AD just on the mere fact that I was worried these people thought I had flutter nutter for brains!

lesson learned:  Speak with their designer(s) first and make sure you understand their requirements before you start creating!
