Back on Track

Hiatus finally over!  I’m so excited about the new site design – this is a first for me: our own custom designed Wordpress Theme.  I worked this baby up from scratch thanks to a brilliant tutorial by Ian Stewart of Theme Shaper, and I’m super pleased with the result.  Knowing me of course I’ll get bored with it in a couple of months so you can expect the masthead at least to change from time to time.

So since this website is all about what we’ve been doing, let’s do a little 3-month recap to get this ball rolling again.

  • I took Phibersmith Designs out into the public with my very first craft show at Blim in March, the prep for which took me most of the month because I had to fill a whole table with TINY PIECES OF JEWELRY – phew!  I’m still working on getting the full range of my products made for that show up on the Phibersmith website.
  • Speaking of the Phibersmith website – it is also up and running and open for business.  Not that I don’t LOVE etsy, but having Phibersmith on its own little web-island-home is a relief.
  • My portfolio site has also been redesigned as a Flash site, which was a frustrating and fantastic process (Thomas deserves mad props for putting up with my hair-tearing while I learned ActionScript) at the end of January.
  • We bought a car at the beginning of March, because we’re a little bit nuts:
    Our Car
  • We signed up for a pottery class at Place des arts in Coquitlam
  • Thomas turned 27:
  • Wait, that’s Piper, here’s Thomas:
    Thomas's Birthday
  • and I decorated the entire apartment with balloons and streamers.  Because Thomas thinks that balloons are alive and popping is akin to balloon-murder, all the balloons are still blown up and taking up real estate in the closet.  It’s been almost 2 months.  That is some balloon staying power.

It’s awesome to be back! Thanks for your patience.
