Keep on keepin’ on…

I’m not going to lie, I think the only reason this domain is still around is based on the fact that I keep it on auto-renewal. The problem with that is I have a tendency to completely forget it’s even here. I’ve actually been blogging more on krissy.nu lately, but that’s due to all of the random personal things going on that I just need an outlet for.  I’m still working hard via AGn Designs, work has out-weighed anything I’ve wanted to do with this domain. There’s a few PSD’s put together for new themes, and I’ve even been tempted to pay someone to code them for me because I’ve been too busy working for other people. Knowing that I’m a control freak when it comes to code… that’s just not going to happen. So for now this domain will…

Rodan + Fields

So I thought that I would introduce the company that I recently partnered with; Rodan + Fields Dermatologists (yes, the creator’s of Pro-active). I recently had a bouncing baby boy, and like many others in these economic times found that it was actually more finacially straining for me to go back to work. So my husband and I went from a two person, two income household to a three person, one income household. I just had to find something I could do to generate any additional income possible, while taking care of my baby full time. But what the heck could I possibly do that wouldn’t be a scam and cause us to lose even more money. Well, I had a dear friend from high school that I had lost touch with, but with the power of facebook and twitter…

What’s going on?

As I’ve previously noted, Sean and I have been in Delaware for over a month now.  A major rush of accounts has come through over the course of the past few weeks and we feel as though the universe is trying to tell us something.  Ever since we made the choice to move down here and purchase a home, hundreds of emails are going back and forth on a regular basis with numerous different clients.  I personally have 5 sites to work on at the moment, and Sean’s got more to do than he can even think of.  I don’t know if this is because of our choice, proving to us that it is 100% possible to live down here and afford our own home, we really – really don’t know. Either way. We’re going crazy with work, and it…

It’s been…rough…

As previously noted, Sean and I are in Delaware for a “workation”.  We haven’t really gotten to enjoy very much being as our computers really don’t leave our sides unless we’re sleeping, even then they’re still on and downloading countless emails for the 6-8 hours (if we’re lucky) while we’re asleep.  We took some time to drive around down in the Rehoboth area (by his Mom) to do some house hunting.  Of course everyone that sparked my interest was in the $250k to $350k range.  The difference between looking down here at houses in that price range, and the quality of the house in New York would be $500k at least.  I’m looking at houses that in NY would typically be listed in the $850k range just based on the amount of property, the quality of the house, and the…

Times ticking down…

Things have been more than hectic lately, my biggest gripe about all of the pending work to complete is the fact that I’m  typically working in two different locations all day long. This is putting a damper on my ability to get things done by their deadlines due to the inability to just setup and go after I need to switch, it takes me a bit to get back on track due to other circumstances (not to be discussed).  Right now I’m in the process of designing an employment agencies site via wordpress for one client, a very detailed and customized mommy blog, an art portfolio and the outstanding one to trump them all I converting a rather large name company from html to wordpress. Sean and I worked to code the initial pages, but when we were given the…

Up and running!

It took about a year for me to get back up and running, but I’m happy to say that AcidGloss.net is back! The theme is up, and some content has been loaded in.  Over the course of the next couple weeks I’ll be blogging (a lot more), and hopefully able to get this domain back to where it used to be. There will be sponsored posts, but I’ll be sure to keep them limited so that it doesn’t take away from everything else.  I figured a very simple CSS design would keep everything flowing.  Eventually I’d like to turn this into more of a magazine kind of setup but for the being I’m very happy with the result and moving forward with it. The last few years took me away from the internet due to landing myself a very crappy…

Where are you?

OK… so I haven’t kept up with things the way I’ve intended to but that’s due to the fact that lately I’m working six days a week and I’m just too tired to blog.  I have a lot of plans for this site, I just haven’t gotten around to doing them yet.  I haven’t read up on any new technology, I don’t have any ideas for new business techniques and I haven’t got the time to really sit down and write either.  I randomly jot a few ideas down but unfortunately that paperwork gets lost with the stacks of everything else that I’m working on. As far as the web hosting is concerned, I’ve completely handed that over to Sean (lepslair.com) so any questions you can take it up with him.  As far as my design business goes, I want…

Long time, no post.

I haven’t updated here in quite some time and it’s completely due to the fact that my life offline is dramatically different than it was in the past.  I now have the time to finally sit down and blog since I’ve gotten used to my new schedule.  I’m working full time hours during the week and on the weekends I always seemed to be busy doing other things so sitting down to update a blog was never really worth it to me.  I do have some more time now though.  It’s my goal to begin making some drastic changes here in upcoming weeks.  I do not care about the paid blogging world anymore – I went out and got a real job instead of sitting on my ass talking about products that I’ve never actually used before.  There will still…

Inspration Required.

Work has been going pretty well lately, it’s proving to be a bit difficult on my inspiration though. I have the stamina to complete the tasks I have, there’s no question about that. The issue is where I’m unable to come up with ANYTHING for the new clients coming in that hasn’t been done before. I know there are some very creative people out there but it’s one of those situations where once you’ve seen it done before, you know it’s wrong to go out of your way to recreate it and then pass it off as your own. Of course, there is an exception to the rule. If a client asks you to recreate a template that they liked (paid or free, or just on someone else’s website) then you have to do what the client wants – without…

Happy August

While it’s only about 1:30 in the morning, it’s officially August.  July went by rather quickly.  I’m still in New York, I’m still searching for a job and I’m still working on straightening out my head so I can figure out exactly what I’m going to do with my life.  Numerous family members are sick, and while Sean and I have been at my father’s house this entire time, my father doesn’t seem bothered by the fact that we’ve both been here for as long as we have.  We’re hoping to figure things out as soon as possible but of course that requires some kind of a call-back from any of the positions I’ve applied for. Today was pretty busy for me.  I put in a lot of applications and I spent about six hours (straight – no breaks) working…
