The past week I have mainly been busy with creating my homepage. I am rather proud that I wrote the whole page by hand and not in a visual editor or with preset styles. Using wordpress for the blog and the homepage would have been so much easier that I feel a bit foolish by doing that, though.
Writing the homepage by hand took so much more time, not only because I needed to learn how to do it first: It’s hard to decide what to start with and what design to choose if you are starting with an empty file, not with making a choice between a number of predefined layouts. Well, I am not sure whether I am completely satisfied with the whole setup as it is now, but I decided that it is well enough for a start, and stopped worrying about it for a while. I can always redesign it later.
When I needed some time away from my computer I continued to work on cleaning my new old bookpress. As you can see in the picture I am almost done. – I’m so looking forward to that day when it is clean and painted and sitting in my studio! Then I can finally get back to making books. And even better – with a real book press.
Have a nice weekend!
P.S.: You can still enter the give-away that I started on my moving day!
