Eagle-eyed readers have probably noticed that I've been using a new watermark for the past few weeks.
Creating my new logo has been a labor of love. While it would have been much easier to hire someone with a lot more experience than I have to make it, I was determined to do it on my own. I used DesignMantic and was very happy with their tools and their customer service (as it was inevitable that I wouldn't be able to figure it all out on my own.) I got a jpeg, pdf and png version of my logo for a very reasonable price. Did you notice that the logo represents the fact that I'm a lefty?
I used the new logo to design new business cards:
My new blog header (coming soon) will look similar.
I intentionally left the logo's pencil hollow so that I'd have options. The cards look good as is, but they are even more fun in a rainbow of colors.
I didn't just get one set of business cards though, which brings me to my big announcement....
I've brought on Tanya Napier as the Marketing Coordinator for My Creative Life!
I mentioned back in October my plans to monetize the blog, which will be Tanya's main focus. I am thrilled to have her join me! I'll let Tanya introduce herself:
My name is Tanya Napier. I live in Southern California with my husband of 13 years, Will, and our three boys, ages 11, 8 and 4. I am a former preschool teacher and became a stay at home mom when my oldest entered kindergarten. Besides taking care of my own family, I provide childcare for two other families, as well. I love reading, spending time outdoors, drinking coffee and cheering my boys on from the sidelines of many sports.
I can't remember a time when I wasn't involved in some sort of craft project. Scrapbooking is my first love, but I also enjoy cardmaking, sewing, home decor and kid's crafts. I also dabble in art journaling. Nothing inspires me more than being around crafty people and seeing what and how they create.
Welcome, Tanya! I'm so excited to be working together!
