I just know someone is going to see that I have a new blog and come over here to take a peek! ...Or maybe not! LOL!
My initial blog, "Sew Dear To Me," has become a mish mash (is that a word? I think I've been living in the South too long...), of my graphic design work and primitive art. Recently I decided I need to divide the two interests, particularly because I am giving some thought to opening a graphic design website in the future. Presently I offer Blog Banners, Logos for business websites, Newsletters, and/or eBay auction templates.
Today I created a new eBay account under the ID "adele*lark*vintagedesign." Probably a dumb move, because I will have to start all over with zero feedback, but in the long run, I may also look at opening an eBay store. It may be less expensive as far as the listing fees, but I need to do some further research.
As for the name on my blog banner ~ My real name is not "Adele Lark". The name originated after a lot of "free association" brainstorming! I began researching Victorian era names that appealed to me ~ Ettie, Nettie, Maddie, and Hettie, but somehow the name "Adele" came up. My mother's middle name is Adele! And since my journey into graphic design was on a whim, and I adore birds, I thought "Lark", then joined the two. Now that I think of it, it's sort of the same method I use when designing graphics. I didn't want to pigeon-hole my style, so "primitive," "attic," "trunk," or "parlor", etcetera, wasn't considered in choosing my new name, even though those words do convey the era I prefer to illustrate in my designs.
So! If you have some thoughts on what you'd like to see in future designs, drop me a quick line!
