Yesterday I worked on 6sticks. The name was inspired by tally marks (which look like sticks) and fish sticks (a food I’ve grown to strongly dislike). To be honest, I didn’t think I’d fall so in love with it! I don’t know if I can say it’s the best I’ve ever made or anything, but it’s definitely not something I would have predicted myself making. There are hints of colors from the rainbow (ROY G. BIV). Figuring out what exactly indigo is was a bit difficult. Although it uses the same style sheet as Effy, it is still quite different from what I normally create.
I’m not going to use it until 2013, though. And to be quite honest, it looks the furthest from what I’d originally intended. However, I just started “doing” it, and what I came up with actually worked and looked nice. Melissa and Dez like it. :p I’m guessing it’s pretty lovely! 6birds is getting a makeover, and 6 tally marks + “birds” is the new official logo. Writing “6” all of the time has been expected from the start. Also, it’s quite boring and annoying. So it’s going to have tally marks, and it’s going to enjoy those tally marks. ~
My blogs are growing more and more sparse, and I hope to fix this soon! I don’t know about you, but it’s kind of annoying me. >.< I think I’m going to write up some drafts and start scheduling them. 😉
I’ve come a long way with 6birds. Around this time of the year every year since I purchased 6birds I’ve wondered why I continue to renew it. I also imagine what it would be like if I just let it slip away and just drift off of the web, then come back with a new site later on. Just to start over. I’d do a lot of things differently. Then I think about all that I have invested in 6birds – layouts, time, money, etc. 6birds is my main creative outlet. I really do want to keep it forever. I want 6birds to be something I can tell people about and people can count on finding me at – I want to be able to say, “I’m Liza. You can always find me at 6birds. It will always be mine.” As far as I’m concerned, 6birds is forever mine.
