Free Work?

So I think I have a good idea.

Free Design Work.

Yep, that's right. FREE, like F-R-E-E. As giveaways. I think this would only work with some more followers, or else
Twig would win every time right now, and her stuff is beautiful already and not in need of help. (I don't think), but of picking a follower at random via the "paper in the hat" procedure, and designing some kind of marketing collateral for them.
  • Sidebar buttons
  • Banners
  • Print Ready paper flyers
  • Advertisements for print or web
  • Business Card designs
  • Logo design. YES I would give away a logo design. (That's quite the prize, IMHO)
  • No websites. I hate making complete websites though I am quite capable. I hate them so much I charge for each and every one of them.

So, if you think this is a good idea, or a great idea, or a crapshoot, let me know. If you like it, tell everyone you know about it, and if I can get 10 followers, I will commence with the free design giveaways. If I can get 10 followers, I will post the rules, which I have to think about. 1 design, be it logo, banner, ad, etc., and it will be emailed in a print or web ready format to the winner to do with what they wish! Have a great day!

Things that Inspire Me to WAIT

There are times that I see things, sometimes LOTS of things, that make me want to drop everything and MAKE something. Create an invitation, paint a picture, draw a new pattern. Most of the time these things just drop into my lap.

And then I have to WAIT. Wait until Reagan goes down for a nap, (because he knows when I'm not giving him my full attention, and he wants it all in the worst way) or WAIT for Nate to get home so that I can have uninterrupted time. Or just WAIT in general. I am NOT the world's most patient person.


These are the things that I have to WAIT to play with. But the ideas are coming. And stewing, and hopefully weeding out all the bad ones by themselves so I don't have to worry about it!
