Wanted: Creativity and Cleverness

Tom and I have been working on my new site, and let me tell you…it’s hard! Last week, we found a background I loved, got the title banner all fixed up, and were ready to address the other parts of the site this past Saturday when Tom spotted that the background was not tiling well. The lines weren’t matching up, and it looked shoddy. At first he tried to fix it, but then we realized there was a problem with the actual design, and he couldn’t fix that. That was really frustrating for us. We had it all figured out, and now we were going to start from scratch…again.

So we finally found a different pattern that I loved, and we started again. Now we’re stuck because there’s this blank spot on the title banner that’s awkward. Usually people have some creative/clever, or funny, or informative little tag line about themselves or their blog there. I had a few ideas, but when I said them out loud I didn’t like them. So now we’re brainstorming on what to put there.

When it’s all said and done though, it will be goodbye “tomandmeghan.com” and hello….well, you’ll have to wait and see. But I think you’ll agree that the name suits me when you see it. It definitely speaks to my…verbose personality.  I can’t wait to have a site that’s all my own, though. If only lightening would strike and charge my creative juices. I was just worn out Saturday and tired of looking at that incomplete site. It was like it was blocking my ability to think after a while. Every now and then, you just have to step away from a project.

Now it’s time to get back to it.
