The new year has me thinking (and getting very excited) about all the new projects I will be starting (and hopefully finishing) this year, but also has me reflecting on the work I did in 2014. As I mentioned in a recent post, I learned a whole lot about how to get a website up and running last year. I also learned that you can think about something as much as humanly possible, but just getting it up and running is the most important thing, and then things can be learned and resolved on the go (this project sat in my head for about six months before I finally just bit the bullet and launched it into the Blogospehere).
Often the things you did at the beginning of a project can be pretty crap, and you don't really notice this until you make it into the future (which is obviously the present by this point) and good old hindsight kicks you in the backside and says "Wow, that part of your website looks pretty crap in comparison to your recent stuff." As we, and all that we do (hopefully), is in a constant state of evolution (meaning I will probably look back at this post in six months or so and think "What was I thinking?") So.. back to the point of this post, I do plan to get on with some new stuff very soon, but also feel it is important to recap on some old stuff and give everything a good old spring clean here at Em Makes Patterns, so that my site can move forward as a whole, and I don't leave any sad and sorry tutorials behind in the dust.
So to kick things off, I found that the "Glossary" on my site was looking particularly bleak - so thought that was good place to start! I hope you find it a little more informative and inspiring than it's previous counterpart (if you ever came across it).
