Graphics. Gah!

There are times when being graphic-impaired really does annoy me.

I'm finally moving forward with porting the Heartsong Handicrafts site to WordPress. It shouldn't be a big deal. I've done the same many times before with other sites.

Unfortunately, I don't have a logo. I mean, I have a simple logo, but it isn't very good. It doesn't sing, that's for sure. I just want a nice, simple logo that isn't terribly busy, but that doesn't look (like the first attempt) as if I made it from clip-art and standard fonts. My utter and complete lack of drawing ability is a serious handicap in this endeavor.

I did sorta customize a WP theme to match the crappy logo, but that part is easy. The harder part is having something to give the site visual interest, and that doesn't exist right now.

On the other hand, the cross-stitch patterns themselves involve graphics, so I don't want things to get too busy. It's a balancing act.

I may have to throw myself on Katie's mercy, or something. She's pretty busy, though, and prefers to draw whatever she feels like drawing rather than creating something to suit a particular theme.

I feel your pain. I’m so amaz­ing­ly not a designer!
