So, recently I've been working on a new project. It's really...well, KAWAII!! ^-^/
If you don't already know, I have a little shop on Etsy where I sell handmade stationery items. Anything from pencils made from recycled paper to felt covered mini journals, as well as items with my own artwork printed on them. While I really enjoy making these things, I realized some time ago that something was missing. Kitties!!
The new shop will be called The Kawaii Kitty, and will feature all things cute kitty goodness. For the last few months I've been creating new ideas for the shop, and finally have proof!! Lookie (da proofs):
I even created a cute l
Can't believe it's been so long since I was last active in my art and writing! This year has been pretty crazy. Work was unpredictable, living arrangements were very difficult to deal with, friends moved even further away who I already hadn't been able to see for a long time, and my mother was in and out of the hospital so many times I practically know the whole layout of said hospital by heart! Unfortunately, due to all the demanding schedules, heavy stress and emotional issues, my art and writing were put on the back burner as I attempted to deal with...well, life.

Hey there! So lately I've been considering options for expanding my skills and really putting myself out there in the big wide world just a little bit more. I'm extremely shy by nature, but the interwebz seems to have a strange way of bringing even the most agoraphobic, hikikomori hermit (yep, all three terms together!) out into the digital light of day. But...what exactly do you do?

Time for lovey-doveyness again! I'm celebrating by giving back to my wonderful Etsy shop patrons, without whom my shop would not exist. If you have purchased from my shop in the past, or are considering it now, let me give you a warm "thank you" hug for bringing a smile on my face, and allowing me to share my creations with you!!
I'll also be making a delicious chocolate brownie cake with strawberries and ice cream for my family. Mmmm~~~chocolate!!!
And for all my amazing fellow Deviant Art friends, this one's for you:
Wow, I hadn't realized just how long it had been since I last updated my portfolio website. I've kept up fairly well with my blog, but not so much for my website. Turns out, it hasn't been updated since last March!! YIKES!!
When creating a website, you want to keep in mind who your target audience is, what the website is about, as well as what design trends are on the rise. Of course, there are loads of other factors, and these may or may not apply to the product/service/topic your site is about. Then you have to consider technical details such as how your site will appear on mobile, and if it will work with slow internet providers, and
