Just a brief update on what's happening...

 Where does the time go?  How many times do you read a blog with an apology about someone not having the time to keep up with updating social media sites and blogs?  I suppose that I am now one of them...sorry about being absent for so long.

On a good note I have been really busy with work, therefore I come by a great excuse honestly.  I'm working with a few new companies so you will see several new products with my art early in 2015. I've also been doing some freelance work not to mention exhibiting at the weekend markets locally. It's been crazy busy!

My new schedule is posted below for the local Tampa Bay Markets, so if you happen to be in the area - please do stop by and say hello!


                                 I have also added a couple of fun Halloween items into my Etsy shop...



As I leave you with this brief update, I promise to keep you informed more frequently on the latest happenings of Karen Embry Designs. Because my work schedule has been so hectic lately, I would like to share with you a favorite quote of mine that currently seems appropriate:
"Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did."  Newt Gingrich

How true is that?

Have a great day!

Finished! My new website   KarenEmbryDesigns.com   is up and running! ...WOO HOO! I feel a certain amount of satisfaction knowing that I accomplished this using the Adobe Muse program.

Muse, was released a few years back, but for me it was a NEW learning experience. Although technically it was relatively simple once I learned the tools, it was a somewhat time consuming project.   In the process, I learned way more that I wanted to about DNS servers, MX records, redirecting e-mail, etc. One bit of advice, don't shut down one hosting company before the other is completely active. (For those of you that may have made this mistake, you would totally understand).

My new website, is simple and to the point. Not a lot of fluff. You can find out the basics about me, my art, my studio and what I am up to currently... without having to read a book. Of course, it still needs a little tweaking, but the Muse program makes it SO easy. Hope you like my new website!

I would love to hear your comments...
