My New Portfolio Website - Posh and Painterly!


A couple of months ago, my family asked me what I wanted to do for my 70th birthday. When I replied, ‘Launch my portfolio website' I think they were a bit surprised. It wasn't quite what they had in mind.

At the time I was working really hard, preparing patterns to showcase on my website. And, according to the timeline I’d worked out when the Surface Pattern Course ended in February, I was due to have everything ready, website and all, by . . . June 9th, my birthday!

Well, it’s been quite a close-run thing, first of all going through, choosing and editing pattern collections and then going through them again, watermarking and finding names for them – and inevitably finding a few more things to edit.

As for the website itself, that was quite a nightmare and there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth, not to mention the tearing my hair out!

But, with more than a little help from my friends, it finally came together. And on a great wave of confidence, I embarked upon updating my social networking pages, including this blog, to tie in with  the website, as you may have already noticed!

So now it’s time for a fanfare and maybe a drum-roll too. Because here it is –

Ta-dah!

I love it Judy - and the name, Posh and Painterly, is just perfect. You have some beautiful patterns.

Thank you, Tasha and Jayne. I had have a wonderful birthday but I probably won't need anything more to eat for about a week :)

Awesome Judy! I love your designs. I am sitting here wishing I could get them in fabric to make a quilt! :-)

Judy Adamson said...

Thank you, Cathie - your comments mean a lot to me! I was pleased with the way the poppies turned out too. I think I'll be doing more collage in the future.

Hi Crystal - glad you like my patterns. I'm just trying to get up the courage to send my portfolio to some quilting fabric companies :)

Itaya Art said...

I love your new website! Very well done and impressive. I hope you are enjoying creating so many lovely designs to add to it.

Happy Belated Birthday! :)

Judy Adamson said...

Thank you so much, Itaya - I'm completely addicted to pattern-making! And thank you for the birthday greetings too. Hope all's going well with you too :)

The portfolio site looks great, Judy! I like that clicking on the thumbnails will bring us directly to Dropbox so we can download any patterns we like. I wish you could create labels for them though so we can have an idea about which collection we're headed to.

Judy Adamson said...

Thank you for your comments and suggestions, Lucio. I did think about labels but they would take up space that could be occupied by pattern swatches - though I may have an idea how I could do it so that it wouldn't. I'll give it a try when I have time :)
