A New Header

Posted by on 7:33 pm in Uncategorized | Comments Off

I’m still learning a lot about WordPress (the platform that this site is built on) and the theme that I’m using for the site, too. After a bit of reading in the support forums over at Elegant Themes, I manged to update the header on the site, so that it’s a cool photo of Mykonos, Greece. I’m quite proud of myself for getting this done on my own!

My next task will be learning how to add ‘thumbnail’ photos to posts so that you can see the photo in the entries on the homepage. You’ll know if I succeeded if you start to see those thumbnails. Tomorrow’s weather forecast is calling for snow, so I may just have time to figure that all out while the snow piles up in the front yard!

Galleries

Today, I learned how to add photo galleries to WordPress and also how to create sub-menus, so I added several galleries to this site and they’re now available under the ‘galleries’ menu – all in all, it was pretty easy. I’ve managed to learn quite a bit about WordPress recently and I’m feeling really good about that.

Club Scrap‘s new February kit is called Full Circle and it’s gorgeous! Here’s a layout I made with the digi-kit:

That’s me with my friends Cherryl, Tricia, and Julie – I really am blessed to have such great friends!

A Brand New Look

Posted by on 7:46 pm in Uncategorized | Comments Off

After lots and lots of searching, I’ve found a new theme for my site. It’s called Personal Press and it’s by the fine folks at Elegant Themes (they’re working on another new theme that I like, too – so this may get another facelift in the near future!). I’ve still got a few things to figure out – like adding some graphics, but for now, I’m liking this look a lot. It’s got a paper-y feel and that’s a good thing, since I play with paper much of the time.

A New Doorway

Posted by on 11:25 pm in Uncategorized | Comments Off

Welcome to the new Random Doorways! After lots of deliberation, I’ve made the decision to migrate my site to WordPress. I will be migrating as much information as possible from the old site (which isn’t available online anymore) to this new home, but inevitably some info will be lost. Hopefully it won’t be too much. So until the dust settles, feel free to visit my art blog. This new WordPress site will be home to my personal blog, galleries, favorite links, and  few other things as time goes on.
