Throughout the years, I've had several different careers. I am the kind of person that finds something I like and tend to jump in with both feet and fully immerse myself in it. I was a professional makeup artist for 18 years on and off, I owned a handmade shop and penned a blog that turned into a token lifestyle blog back in the 2010's, I was a department head for an e-commerce and currently I'm a stay at home bartender due to bars being closed here in California from the Covid Crisis.
In 2013 I went back to school for graphic design. I had a job in my field as Director of Business Development for a not so corporate e-commerce but I mostly did advertising and rarely got to do any sort of web work. Most of my job consisted of making print work, purchasing ad space, vetoing other peoples designs and drinking lots of coffee.
When I started my old blog, The Sapphire Bee (which I finally had the guts to delete off the face of the internet when I took on this project), I had no idea what I was doing. I created all my images on PicMonkey and spent hours researching how to write my own codes -- I even made my own Lightbox out of moving boxes and tissue paper. Blogging and building a handmade shop cultivated my love for design and its what made me want to be a graphic designer especially because there are so many beautiful blogs on the Internet.
Needless to say, I am busy over here tweaking things because it feels so good to be indulging myself in web design again. Not to mention that the blogging communiverse has changed in the 5 years since I last blogged and I want this space to not only be beautiful and inspiring but functional and user friendly for my guests.
So please pardon my virtual dust because I am going to be adjusting things around here until I am 100% satisfied. Which may be while. Because I am a perfectionist. And I'm OCD. But if you stop by frequently enjoy the seasons of change here.
Are there any great tools that you use on your blog? Think I am missing something? Leave me a comment and let me know!
