Meet My New Website, and it’s Builder!

Today I am super excited to introduce the new look and function of my website!  It has many more features… like an events calendar where you can check out upcoming workshops, find out where I will be the featured artist, and any other upcoming events.  There is a way to contact me directly, and many other features.  I am excited about all the possibilities for this site.  It feels like a big step toward accomplishing some of my goals.  New and exciting things are happening!

But I want to spend the rest of this post bragging a bit on the gal who built my new web home.  I met Tayla when we were both doing the craft show circuit and would often have a booth at the same show.  I was always impressed with her energy, creativity, and professionalism. She keeps her hand dipped in many creative pots, and whatever she does, she does well. So when I heard she built web sites as well, I jumped on the opportunity!

I asked Tayla to tell us a bit about her creative journey and here is what she had to say..

“Wrapping up my artsy story is a difficult task!  But if you start with education, I attended The Art Institutes for Web Design and shortly after acquired a job in marketing…  That did not work out well (the job that is)!  Craving a more hands-on, free approach to my career, I decided to start selling my handmade jewelry through WildFire Studio.

Over the next four years,  I ran WildFire and continuously tried to shape it into a business I could continue experimenting with.  But it never quite got to where I wanted it to and I started to burn out around the beginning of 2016.

Not knowing what direction I wanted to take next, I got a part-time position at my favorite, local coffee shop, found out it was for sale, and snatched it up by that July!  I now strive to bring that same creative energy into my doors that I did with WildFire.

All along, I’ve used my education to build WordPress websites and strengthen branding for all of my businesses (yes, “all…” I’m kind of a serial entrepreneur…) and for other creative makers.  I love the problem solving aspect and hope to continue working on new projects in the future!”

Tayla was so great to work with through the design process, and very patient with this non-tech savvy client!  If you are interested in having her build you a website, contact her at taylamace16@gmail.com or on Instagram @taylamakes

You also need to stop by her coffee shop, The White Peacock whenever you find yourself in Lindsborg… one of my favorite arty little towns!
