Caught up in the web of memory lane
It’s a gorgeous spring day but instead of cavorting around in it, I’ve been trying to get my head around how to upload stuff onto my website.
I had the website made last December and have been paying a monthly fee for it since then, but have not actually made it go live or whatever that expression is, because it is up to me to upload the content. BAD business decision!
Being crap when it comes to technology, I have allowed just about everything else in life to distract me from this important task… blogging, trying to find a job, sewing, op shopping, playing with the cat, cleaning under my bed, extracting navel fluff (not from under the bed!) … you know how it is, basically employing all methods of procrastination possible to avoid the task at hand.
However, I decided it was a waste of money to be paying $54/month and not getting anything out of it due to my own laziness. So today has been spent trying to find photos of my dresses that are still available, resize them, upload them onto just ONE page of the site.. all that exciting stuff.
These are a few of the pics I found in the process, all of them from at least two years ago (aggh!!!)… (and yes, that is Mischa Barton wearing my dress…)
Do you think it’s fair to blame my friends who keep having babies for my not getting work done? I do! Evil friends! I have to keep making baby presents, which in the past few weeks has kept me away from my website and doing important but boring stuff. My most recent effort has been these rompers which are made from the same material as the skirt I’m wearing above, but for a baby boy in Japan. They’re from this pattern which I showed you earlier. Sweet, hey?
Aww that little romper is so cute! But get to it girl! I can't speak, i bake and clean until the very last minute before I force myself to get uni assignments done! And then i panic and stress and sometimes cry when I run out of time.I don't think my comment on your post about how you made your dress worked, so i'll say once again: You looked amazing (including flying-hat shot), and even as a fellow op-shopper, i cannot believe how little it cost you to make! Big respect.xx Claire
blogging, sewing, op shopping, playing with the cat, cleaning under my bed,….. that sounds like my everyday life!!!The first pink dress is gorgeous, and thats fantastic you have Mischa Barton wearing your dress! Go you!
Wow, it's ALL so GORGEOUS!
I know that feeling of procrastination very well … but it certainly sounds like you've had your hands full with lots and lots of things to be done … everything comes together eventually … 🙂
Ooooh how exciting!! Lots of moola for your site though (I coulda done it cheaper 😉 haha)http://aclosetfashionista.blogspot.com/
such beautiful, unique dresses! You should definitely sew more and get that site working.. but… procrastination is an art form which takes months or years to perfect. At uni, my friends and I spent hours discussing our book on 101 ways to procrastinate but never got round to writing it – typical. Love the rompers but love the skirt more!
These dresses are all gorgeous! and you look fabulous modelling them. I promise to post something about my earring collection soon, especially for you.
PS – I pay only $99 a year for my business website space through TPG and another $25.80 a year for my domain name. Is someone ripping you off?
What the… I rang a few places before I decided on my website developer (Magic Dust) – every other place was going to charge more than $2000 just to build the site, and then $50 or something every time I needed to upload more info. So I thought I was getting an OK deal (I wanted to go with a carbon neutral company too, which is why I couldn't just go for the cheapest company). I seriously regret getting a site now as I soooo much prefer blogging and could have just worked more on my blog instead!! grrr…
