If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it’s been a great week. I do seem to have picked up a bit of a cold over the past few days, and I think my body is finally feeling the weight of the past month or so—I’ve been a sleep quite a lot these past 2 days. But luckily I’ve had time to unwind as well as time to work.
I spent quite a lot of the week finishing up a redesign of Part-Time Monster. I chose a new theme, got a .com, and redid the pages, widgets, and menus. I went through the social media connected with the blog to update profiles and information. I am now working on building a few new pages, including one that lists my guest posts, but mostly I’ve finished up the things I wanted to do. The feedback I’ve gotten has been encouraging, and I’m happy to introduce a new, more polished version of the Monster.
I’ve also been doing quite a bit of research this week, reading up on sewing, costuming, home economics classes, and textile conservation for the nonprofit. The reading has been really interesting, and I’m really excited about the work we’re doing.
I’ve also been reading a few other things this week. I finished up the first volume of Sex Criminals (quite impressive) and Kim Fu’s For Today I Am a Boy (also impressive); I’ve almost finished V for Vendetta and Barbie and Ruth, a really interesting look into Mattel. Having so many books going is nice, and it’s doubly nice to be able to catch up on comics that I’ve missed. I haven’t managed to clean out those closets that I wanted to, but they can wait for the coming week.
Today is just a relaxing day—one where I might take a nap and will probably get a lot of reading and definitely get a lot of writing done. i’m visiting coffee posts today, too–and with that, I leave you.
