Lately I’ve been working on website design a bit more and it’s definitely growing on me. Projects can range from simply updating/maintaining a client’s site and rebranding a current design to fully creating a website from the ground up. There usually are a bunch of elements to consider when preparing for a web build so I’m thankful I’m a very organized and efficient worker. It surely comes in handy.

Every business should have a website. Word of mouth and referrals are important but there’s nothing that will feature your company as well as a personal space on the web. Being accessible to potential clients and customers is key to growth. I feel a simple and streamlined design is best, as long as it’s informative, tells your story and makes an impression. It should also reflect your branding, as all marketing materials should.

If there is one place others can learn about who are and what you do, it’s your website. I will be honest, when I visit certain sites, whatever it may be, and it’s hard to navigate or just a hot mess, I click off pretty fast and move on. The only thing that keeps me there is figuring out how I would improve it. Lol. And more than a handful of times I’ve thought about reaching out to ask if they are interested in getting a visual upgrade but I never do it. Maybe I should 🤷🏻‍♀️

A sneak peek into a pretty cool project I wrapped up recently for Patti Green that will be distributed to the kids in the Buffalo, NY school district. They are partnering with the Police Athletic League to offer a happy and healthy summer program for 2 months and this journal is something they will use to track their daily success. I’m super excited and hope they all enjoy using it!

Wrapped up another website this week for @musicaljourneysny and was so happy to help Rebecca give her business an upgrade! We kept it simple with pops of her color palette and included all the necessary info for clients. I was excited when Rebecca reached out to me a few months ago about the project and couldn’t wait to get started. Helping local businesses is something I strive to do so finalizing this project means a lot. And the fact that she loves it and enjoyed working with me makes all the difference. If you live in Long Island/Suffolk County and looking for music lessons don’t hesitate to reach out to Rebecca! She’s super talented and so sweet. Visit musicaljourneysny.com to learn more.

Garden Love

A little peek into our vegetable garden, aka: my happy place. So far everything I planted is thriving and it’s just so gratifying. We have lettuce, broccoli, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, basil, parsley and cilantro. Lots of our favorite things to eat. Growing food, or just about anything for that matter, has been such a love of mine. And lately I’ve felt a calling to be closer to the earth and plant all the things. I have a vision… and dream that one day hopefully soon we will have a little farm on our property. It will be filled with tons of vegetables and fruits, along with flowers. I imagine it being a beautiful and magical place, as our small garden is now, and becomes a local spot for organic produce around our town. I don’t know all the legal hoops to get to that point but it’s something I would like to work toward. I truly enjoy doing this so much and Gray Star Farms doesn’t seem so silly to me.

Anyway, just wanted to share a special place I love with you all. I come out here every morning and throughout the day to water and observe and then at night one last time before our day is done. It’s a big part of my daily routine. I am so grateful to have the space to bring this garden to life and proud of what we created. Nature will always have a place in my heart.
