A Quiet Work Day
[ Tee from Kohls + Shorts from Target + Converse + $2 coral lipstick ]
I didn’t feel like getting out of bed yesterday, but my to-do list and calendar are quite full and I knew I had to work at some point. I lazed in bed reading The Paris Wife until Slayer jumped on top of me to make me get up.
I parked myself on the couch with a bowl of granola and started coding the site I’d been putting off for a week. It’s a little more complicated than my usual blog designs with three separate templates, two navigation menus and eight photo slideshows. I knew I’d need to do a little research to get all of it working right and, really, who likes research? But I made myself start working and was relieved to find the pieces coming together more smoothly than expected.
I flew through that first template, shot a vignette with candy and lipstick for another client and then started coding a bright, ethereal site for one of my circus friends.
I’m excited to share some new designs over the next few weeks. I’ve had a rash of clients go missing just as I was ready to install their templates, so I’ve been itching to actually put something online.
Have any of you designers had to deal with that? Clients paying a deposit, going through the entire process and then disappearing just as you’re ready to install?06.26.12 in freelance, what i wore
