Delve Into Me: A Close Look At the Bloggers You Love (008)

Today's interview is going to be a little bit different than the one's I've done in the past. Emily from Lynde Avenue contacted me a few weeks ago, asking for an interview - and I happily agreed. Read on to learn more about her. :)

What are the best types of design clients?

Ones who return emails quickly and are very flexible. My turnaround time for designs is pretty fast, so it's awesome to get feedback as soon as possible! I also like clients who are flexible, because sometimes there are just certain elements that I can't create or don't know how to, and I love bloggers who are super understanding about that sort of thing.

What's your designing pet peeve?

Hm...I'm not too fond of designing with the color blue, but I suppose that's more personal preference than pet peeve :P I'm going to have to say, when my graphics don't download properly *shudders*

Where do you draw inspiration?

Inspiration is everywhere! Some of the questions I ask on my design form is for a color theme and a mood, possibly even a link to a photo. Based on the vibe I get from those it's pretty easy to move forward from there!

Have you ever had a design where you just don't know what to create for someone?

It's happened to me a couple of times...my advice for that is to create the header first. Once your header is on point, the entire design is basically done ;)

What are some of your must-have resources when creating a design?

I love PicMonkey for creating graphics, Pinterest for inspiration, and Photobucket for hosting images! I'd like to add Photoshop to that list in the near future, but since my designs are free and I haven't got a job I'm broke at the moment :P

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
