Name Change?

I am starting to do print design - starting off with business cards. I was thinking of just going into print design in general while I still refine my skills in web design. While considering this I realized that my "name" is Pinky's Pages which infers that I design websites which, as you now know, is not the case. So that got me thinking of other possible names. The whole purpose of Pinky's Pages was the "Pinky's" part of it. My daughter was given the nickname Pinky by my mom and we have all referred to her as Pinky at one point or another. Keeping Pinky in the name is, therefore, important to me. So the name I was thinking about is Pinky Designs. With this name I will be able to offer just print design while at a later time taking on web design. Any thoughts? I would love to hear them. As long as they are not off topic or rude.

Under The Sea Collection

Well, I finally finished them! This collection only contains four backgrounds because I'm testing the waters to see what the response is to these new themed backgrounds. Please let me know what your thoughts are!

Welcome to Pinky's Pages!

Last month I mentioned that we would be going through a few changes. Well just in case you missed it Creative Muse Designs has become Pinky's Pages! As for the image hosting, I will be leaving the backgrounds I currently have where they are and all new backgrounds will be hosted on a different server. I am sad to say that The Paper Studio has not replied to my request to create a background collection based off of their So-So-Sweet collection. To play it safe I will not be creating this collection of backgrounds. That's ok because I have so many things floating around in my mind it's hard to figure out where to start. I will have a new collection up within the next couple of weeks. It would be sooner but I still have a family to take care of and school work to do ;-) Oh and I am still working on that "fun little project" I talked about before. Hopefully I will have more information on it by August.

Future Changes

I will be making a few changes to CMD within the next couple of months:

1) Name change - I have already decided on the new name but will wait until I have purchased the domain to reveal it.
2) Background hosting - Right now I use PhotoBucket to host all my designs but fear that I will reach my limit causing the images to be blocked and a PhotoBucket message to be displayed. Once I get my domain set up I will start hosting the images with whichever company I decide to go with.
3) So-So-Sweet Collection - I am working on a new collection of backgrounds which are basically scanned images of the So-So-Sweet Paper Pack from The Paper Studio. I in no way will be taking credit for creating the actual images but I will be putting them together to make cute backgrounds. This, of course, will be pending - I will be asking the company if it is ok for me to do this. Since I don't charge for these backgrounds I don't see a problem but you never know.

There is also a fun little project I am going to start working on and I hope to have that up and running within the next six months. It sounds long - I know. But if all goes well it will be well worth the wait!
