It’s been a few weeks in the making, but I’m finally formally announcing my design site: The Suitcase Designs! Cue my heart beating at fifty million miles and hour and palm sweats.
I’ve been dabbling with blog design since I first started blogging back in February of 2012. If you ask my siblings, I actually have a history with web design. When I was 12 years old, I went through a kick where I wanted to make my own website. I got a free domain through Yahoo and learned (all by myself) how to use html…css wasn’t around then. As most childhood fads go, that design phase blew by as fast as it came.
After moving to WordPress.org, the freedom to use coding in my blog designs became almost limitless in my eyes. I discover new things each day to make my life with blogging easier. I also became friends with another awesome designer Lisette. We talk to each other almost daily about design: our successes and mistakes. I have learned so much from that girl…what would I do without her?
Several weeks ago I decided to see if I had what it would take to be a designer. I had two wonderful and brave ladies step forward as my design guinea pigs – their spiffy, sexy, sleek designs were the result (have you checked out Found Love Now What and Treasure Tromp lately). I had so much fun with the creative process of making their design dreams come true, I knew I just couldn’t stop!
The idea of The Suitcase Designs was born. Although I currently can fit everything I own into a suitcase and a half, I figured the title was relevant to my life. For the past two years I have learned to create a comfortable and beautiful life out of my very portable living situation, and I wanted to bring my creativity to the table to share. No matter where my future clients are: traveling or settled down, they could enjoy a design created uniquely just for them.
I am currently offering an introductory promotion on all designs (WordPress and Blogger), so if you’re in need of one for this up-and-coming fall season, now may be the time to do it.
I’d love to hear your feedback: comments and concerns over my new endeavor! Remember, my inbox is always open.
