Ta Da!

I'm thrilled to announce my website www.DeborahsStudio.com is now live! How exciting. I hope you will check it out! I've also dressed my blogs to match. Holly Knott designed my website and helped me personalize my blogs. She did an amazing job!

I'm dipping my toes into the waters of selling, teaching, and writing about fiber art. Sometimes the water is so nice I feel like I can dive right in. I am confident this website will be a good foundation for continuing to develop these ideas. You can test the waters with me.

In the last week or so, I've been overwhelmed with school responsibilities, continuing house tasks, new schedules and other stuff that just pops up. Part of my wants to devote more time to preparing the workshops that are detailed on my site. And part of me wants to read more chapters from our favorite books to Claire at bedtime. And part of me has no choice but to fold the mountain of laundry sitting on the bed. Yes, you know all about this!

So, thank you for your enthusiasm and your patience. I am so honored to think that you enjoy reading my blog!

I've also posted a small piece of art on my Art Blog for sale. And there are several other pieces that are still available. I'm also up for commissions. Let me know if you have any ideas!

Jeff and I are going to Maryland this weekend. Grma and Grpa are here to take care of the kids. Grpa had to bring a whole extra suit case for treats for Lincoln! He's a dog lover. Have a great weekend. I'll be back next week!

Me too! I love the website as well. So warm and welcoming and it seems so completely you (even though I've never actually met you). I know about the reading and the laundry as well. I'm in the same spot. Right now the art is winning, but...

Love it love it love it. Crisp, uncluttered, bright, easy to use... just like YOU. Nice work D. and Holly. And a nice tie in with your blog. You've got somethin' good here. I think it says something that I want to buy ALL your "How To" books, even though you've already taught me what's inside! The pictures are great. I get the "feel" of every workshop/project.

I'll rent out my mother-in-laws accordian book at a reasonable rate if you need another class example.

Now, where in Maryland might you be going? We're headed to Baltimore this weekend. Flying in?
Big Ukrainian Festival!

The new look of your blogs is wonderful - great colour and an interesting banner that makes you want to see more. And how well it matches your website! I love how you have kept it so simple and uncluttered. Your classes all seem interesting and I hope the site gets you the kind of attention you deserve and enough work to keep you happy and healthy :-) Best of luck!

Deborah,
Your new website is so YOU, the colors and the graphics are perfect and reflect your personality and your art. I think you are going to do so well with your teaching and books and selling your artwork.
Congratulations to you and to Holly for a job well done!

Hi everyone! Thanks for the feedback on Deborah's site. You all probably know her better than I do, so it's really good to hear that you think it matches her personality. It was a fun project. :-)

And there's Rebecca H - small world! Hope you are doing well down there - I owe you an email.

Congratulations on your new website. Having just set up a new website for my contemporary quilts (www.brendagaelsmith.com), I know how much thought goes into setting the mood and style. I like the clean link to your blog too.

I am soooo proud and thrilled for you Deb!!! This is a fabu addition to your blog and I love what you are offering as workshops, which makes me jealous that you aren't pigeonholed into one thing. What a concept! Great that the art blogsite links up so easy too. What a smartie you are, and I am so glad I know you,

Love Mel
