I know what you’re thinking - “Aw, no! Not again!! Is this girl crazy or what?” Yes, the time has come again to make some changes.

So, obviously, I have changed the name, design, domain, and packages. Very quickly – we are now Beauty Design Studios, the complete url is http://www.beautydesignstudios.com, and most important of all, I have removed the free package.

I knew this day would come, but I still wish I could leave the free package up. Why can’t I? Well, I unfortunately just don’t have the time. It was so fun for me to offer free designs, and I really enjoyed it, but with all the things that need doing in my life, I need to shore up my packages. And just to remind everyone – those who have ordered free packages are still getting them free of charge. This loss of the free package only affects those who have not ordered yet.

So, check out the rest of the site! I have made changes to nearly every page. And let me know how you like the new name and design!

But…before doing that, look at Iona’s blog. We finished up her design a few weeks ago, and I really enjoyed working with her again!

And I just finished designing a website for my Dad’s latest book. (Note that the video on the front page is currently under construction)

And as if that weren’t enough, I went and redid my own blog and website! (At least I’m getting some good practice that you all will benefit from. ;) Hopefully.

It’s a Wide Field…

…designing is. Clothes, web, interior…and this week I’ll be switching gears from graphic to sewing. Some of you know that I am entering the JoAnn prom dress contest this year, and I’ll be taking the next few days to finish that up! Because of that, I’ll be pretty much completely absent from the designing world. I’ll be back either late this week or early next week – with photos of the finished dress! ;)

There are so many designs in the works right now, and I’m having a blast doing them. There are about seven ladies who are working with me right now, and some of their designs are almost complete. Photos are coming soon of the finished designs!

Our designers’ community is growing rapidly, which is so exciting to me! We’re already enjoying hearing from all kinds of designers about who they are, and how to excel at graphic design. Be sure to check that area out if you haven’t! And there are some more freebies for you (Owl City wallpapers, to be exact ;) ) here.

*Those of you who I am currently working with – I will not stop the process this week, but it will slow down considerably. Don’t worry though – I’ll be fully back in just a few days! ;)*
