I was nearing the end of my time in art school and I remember lying on my red couch in my apartment and considering what my sweet friend Danielle had mentioned...."Why don't you start a blog?" (*Confession, we used to meet in the computer lab each day before class to look at art blogs. I also brought a giant bag to hide my large Sonic DP since no drinks were allowed in the computer lab....but that's a story for another day. Yes, I'm a rebellious art nerd. :) Anyway, I decided to call it "Specs & Wings" and to journal out my creative life and share the stories behind art projects. I didn't know then what I would really do with a blog...or even if I'd continue writing in it, but here we are...almost 5 years later, and I have grown to really enjoy this space and getting to share experiences and stories with all of you!
Since I started blogging, my style changed, what (and how much!) I share changed, and my direction for S&W changed...so naturally when I had a brand new logo and branding style...I really wanted my blog design to match! My graphic designer made a blog banner for me, I was hoping to make some other changes but it's a bit out of my skill set (or TOTALLY)! I wanted a cool, modern design that was easy to navigate and nicely framed my blog posts. The hunt for a web designer began! I'd seen Melanie's work on my friends blogs and decided to email her. Melanie from "My Billie Designs" was a blast to work with and she really caught my vision!

Not only that! She installed everything and made more changes to make my blog consistent with my new brand! I love everything about it. On the day it launched I couldn't have been more excited!
