Redoing entire site and desktop calendars for January up

Hi everyone! I've been working on my site. Once it's been overhauled I can start adding all the new stuff I've made for the past year. I'm working through the site and deleting and/or repairing-replacing old stationery and wallpaper. Adding the new sizes and formats I've been doing, like the large wide wallpaper and eml format stationery and in some cases, even Outlook Express stationery that never got made. I'm adding the copyright info and deleting stuff that's not copyright compliant. It's a huge job and I've been procrastinating too long. I've purchased hundreds of dollars of tubes over the past few months and I have to get that copyright info on my stuff. I've been putting off even updating the site, as you know, because I knew I had to do this job and it was so huge I felt overwhelmed. Well, I grabbed the bull by the horns and started. It's slow going because I have to redo all the graphics, stationery, wallpaper, in some cases spending hours looking for the artist of a tube to find out if it's allowed or not, adding the credits, and in many cases, redoing the look of the graphic as I can do so much better now than when I made the older stuff. And if I think it's ugly and can't be fixed, out it goes!!! So keep checking back, I won't be putting them on the New Stationery and New Wallpaper pages, there will just be too many. I'm not replacing blends and scenic stuff at the moment, just stuff with tubes. So far I've completed the Angels and Autumn categories in both stationery and desktop wallpaper and I'm working on the Fairies. That's a biggie as so many of them are made with tubes and also my favorite section, so I have lots to work on. I'm averaging about 2-3 wallpaper-stationery combos a day and that's if I already know who the artist is. I'll be working on it for weeks so keep checking back. 

On another note, I already have the January 2010 Desktop Calendars made, can you believe it! They're uploaded and ready for you here. Have a great Holiday season and keep checking back for all my new goodies!
Hugs, Ellie
