I am beyondincrediblyverysuper excited for this moment -- the moment where I unveil a new, more functional, more friendly website. But more importantly, the moment where I break an eight-month-long blogging dryspell (shame on me) and share the exciting work that came out of the L&A shop in 2012 and what unfolds this year.
This is the third time I've redesigned the site. First, I made a blog. Then I "handcoded" a site that loved lightbox oh-so-much. Now, I've made a site themed on WordPress, which brings site and blog together. I've added a few new features, too.
It may not seem like much, but it's kind of a big deal. Why?
- Shopping is fun.
- Contact forms are friendly.
- Weddings are the ultimate paper experience. They take a lot of labor and love to create, but it's worth it for the most cherished of paper pieces.
- If you don't know, then I don't know.
This site has, unfortunately, been a work in progress for longer than it has needed to be. (More to come on that during my ThrowbackThursdays series when I take a look back at 2012 projects). However, as I look ahead to the new year, I'm excited to fill lotusandash.com/lifestyle (neé UPDATE) with plenty of travel, recipes, links, inspirations, and of course, paper.
It must be said that WordPress installations are no fun, and that the fact that this site is *live* is a feat in and of itself. This is what the site looked like last night at 11pm:
