Hello! I am having a super busy administrative day. So here’s a few important updates that you should know about:
1. | Firstly, the winners: I ask that you email me asap at wilna71 (at) yahoo (dot) ca (not com)
2. | Then you should know that I am the guest Instagrammer for Big Picture Classes this week. I am so excited to show you sneak peeks of my upcoming Art&Design class and chat about it a bit. Follow @bigpictureclasses on Instagram. Tomorrow a few friends and I will host some Instagram give aways of my Art&Design class.
3. | I also made projects for Dear Lizzy this month and one of them (Popsicle Invitations) is on her blog today. So adorable. I added the cut files I used to make the project in the shop over at wwwiheartstudio.ca.
Art class Update
4. | As you know by now I received back the rights to my Art Class 1 & 2 and Love Mini Album Workshops. Two Peas send me an email list of everyone that enrolled in the classes. Now that I am done with the content of my Art& Design Workshop, I will start working to add those Workshops on www.iheartstudio.ca. I have a great set up there now and the classrooms will be beautiful.
Important: According to US and Canadian laws, I cannot email you out of the blue about the workshops becuase I do not have your permission to do so. That’s why I asking you to sign up for my news letter. I will absolutely not be sending you any emails about the workshops. I use mail chimp and they are one of the industry standards when it comes to sending lots of mail and newsletters and things. I read up quite a bit about it and they comply over and beyond all the laws. When you sigh up for my newsletter, you have to confirm it. This is an important step as it leaves a paper trail that proves you gave me permission.
New blog coming soon…
5. | I am working on a new blog. This blog address will work for the new blog! It’s basically done and looks beautiful. It will be fully functional September 1st. After almost 10 years with blogger I took the big step and migrated this blog and all of its content over to WordPress where I will be hosting it myself. (meaning it will cost me something every month). There is a few reasons for this:
- I became more and more frustrated with the limited customization functions of blogger. I have been building websites with WordPress the past 3 years and felt more and more confident that I can do it and make it beautiful. WordPress has a plugin for every desire and the developers are so accommodating.
- Becuase 2peas closed, I have no place to host my gallery of pages. I wanted to add them all in one place where I have full control over how they look and display. WordPress provided me the platform for this. I am still busy adding galleries. It will be 10 years of creative work displayed in my galleries. Minus my workshop content. That’s a lot.
- With iheartstudio.ca doing so well and looking so beautiful now, I wanted a more uniform look between the websites. One look for my brand: iHeart.
- I will never ever delete this blogger blog. But on September 1st, this BLOGGER blog will resume the www.wilnaf.blogpost.com address.
6. | I will resume posting wednesday Videos on this blog September 3rd. It will be on my new blog!
Have I told you lately how much I love you?
