WOW! A BIG heartfelt thank you to Brenda Pinnick for helping me to get started by helping learn to navigate around behind the scenes here at typepad. So that I too can join the ranks of bloggers everywhere.
So while I am getting this set up and while I continue to build the web site (www.jillmackay.com) you can watch the progression if all of this...if it is of any interest.
Since I am a designer and author mainly focused on jewelry at this time this will be the main focus of my blog. Though eventually I would like the blog to take on a magazine type format so I can put all sorts of interesting things here. From jewelry trends to shared tips and techniques mixed with a lot of humor and inspiration. We all need lots of that!
I would like this to be a place we can share our ideas. Where I can connect with you. This will help me. I work most all day every day from my studios. And though I have learned to find inspiration on my own and now quite easily glean inspiration from so much, from the smallest of things, from "things" that are not things at all! The world about us is teaming with beauty, patterns, forms, lines and color palettes. It is my hope that this blog will allow a format about jewelry design and how to find inspiration within the smallest of things...though I would love to share our ideas on this...generating inspiration.
Oh and of course I will be using it for complete and utter shameless self promotion...as well a sort of focus group... a place for me to learn what you all want to see on the market place! This will help me while I manufacture my line and for Darice, Inc.
Thanks for joining me...don't expect my entries to be without typo!
More soon...all comments welcome!
Please join me now in my clumsy attempt at eCommerce and blogging! I can do this!!!
