Ruby Lane's Official Kick Off!
I am really not sure what to put in my first post! I will start with saying that I am a woman of many hats lol. I painted wall murals professionally for 7 years in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, I have a perfume and bath and body line where I created 12 fragrances and they are carried in day spas and salons in Tampa Bay :) My perfume line is my baby and I LOVE it. I am my happiest when I am creating something. When I first started my perfume line I had others do my logo and label design because I didn't know a program, although I had a flair for design. I was never pleased with the labeling I ended up with so I got Photoshop CS3 and began learning all I could about graphics. I ended up designing all of the labels for the perfumes etc. I loved doing graphics SO much that I ventured out into the world of digital scrap booking as a hobby. I had boxes of photos of my children and memory sticks full of photos and special memories to keep me busy for eons! I started out downloading freebies and bought some designer kits. There are so many wonderful digital designers on the web, their talent never ceases to amaze me. I have my favorites :) and I browse their stores often. Many of them have offered so many fabulous freebies and have inspired to dabble in design and now I get to give back and start offering some of my creations to you! My favorite things to design are papers, I have to say, I think that is because of all the years of mural and faux finishing work I did and I have taken some of my finishes and turned them into papers. I hope that I will gain some followers, some friends, and some expertise along the way on this blog. Come back tomorrow for Ruby Lane's first FREEBIE!
