Sneak Peek

Yesterday I mentioned that I've been working on a new site... the soon-to-be revealed (assuming no one buys the domain name before me!).  Here is a little sneak peak of what I've been working on:

Home Page (logo still in process)

Curation Page (Teeny, tiny sneak peek)

Wanderlust Page

And that's all I'm going to give away right now... you'll have to stay tuned until the full launch!

Like I mentioned before, I am waiting to buy the domain and hosting until I have some more $.  It's a little over $60 for a two-year plan.  That's not a lot, but it's more than I have right now.  :(

Ideas and transitions

I am in the process of creating a new website for my blog.  I need to save up a few more $$$ before I can buy the domain name, however, is coming soon!  I have a vision for the new site... but it will take awhile to get there.

In the meantime, I've been thinking about things like - what do I want to read?  what do others want to read? what visually stimulates my creativity?  what do I want my "tone" to be?  is this a lifestyle website?  instructional? diy? personal? for profit?

I am sketching and making lists to determine what should end up on the site.  So far I think I have narrowed it down to the following:

Blog: Musings, inspiration, creative endeavors

Menu: All things tea related, menus, recipes, tea party ideas, etc.

Curation: A specially curated section of all things beautiful.  The content will revolve, so check back frequently to be continually inspired and motivated.

Wanderlust: Capturing the essence of new locations through photos and stories.

Shop: I hope to eventually offer goods from foreign lands, hand crafted items, and specialty teas.

Does this sound like a site you would frequent?  Any thoughts or advice?

If this sounds like a venture you'd like to be personally a part of, I am currently lacking in funds to purchase a domain name and hosting.  It is a mere $67.90 for two years.  Let me know if you want to partner with me - reward options coming soon!

58 days

58 days.  By the time you read this, 57.

In 58 days I will be Mrs. Peter Arthur.

I am excited...
in love...

...scared stiff.

Not scared of getting married.  Not scared of being a wife.  Not scared of "until death do us part."

In 38 days Peter and I will technically be homeless.

And jobless.

And broke.

58 days till the wedding.

Then what?
