evidence of evolution: website + giveaway winner announced

Sep 21, 2012 | Entrepreneurship, Life in Progress

Recently, I shared the evolution of what my blog has looked like over the years (since 2005!) and this week I’d thought I’d share the evolution of my website. So grateful for this web archiving site that takes screenshots so that we can travel back and see our sites (or any sites for that matter). I love looking back, reading old journals, looking at old photos – just evidence of evolution and evidence of a life lived.

Above is my first website ever. Built it myself over a long weekend in the Fall of 2006. I was such a new artist. NEW! Naive. Had no idea what I was doing at all. New as in having never painted a lick prior to about 7 months before this site debuted. I was living on passion in those days, like the ways we live when we fall in love. Little sleep. Little food. Just pure adrenalin, passion, and dreams.  
I changed it up a little bit in 2007. Above is what it looked like until……

late 2009 when I finally invested in hiring a programmer and designer. Huge difference. One of the best decisions I made for my growing business at that time. I had this version of my site until…..

earlier this year (2012). I’m loving this new look. Love evolution. Love how we change. 
Love how we all start somewhere.

Today is the LAST day to sign up for my ecourse where I share everything I’ve learned along the way when it comes to starting from scratch and building a successful creative business. Are you in? This is your last chance. I’d love for you to join in the amazingness that has been  happening since the classroom opened up earlier this week! Click here to register!

And the giveaway goes to…

One person will receive a spot in Tara Sophia Mohr’s Playing Big program for women.

Lauren said…Wow, I am flabbergasted! I had no idea that other people felt exactly this way: “What I’m doing now is okay, but I have an inkling I am meant to do something bigger.” I have had this feeling — of something bigger — my entire life. I can’t pinpoint when it started, the knowing that there was a mountain-bursting-with-lava amount of potential about to erupt inside of me, but I don’t remember a time when it wasn’t there. I do, however, remember times when it lay dormant. Like, right out of college when I was living in the wrong city, working in the wrong job. Or my first frew years of motherhood, when post-partum depression took over and I couldn’t find my inner peace, let alone a will to create. But, the good news is: it is back! It is here, stronger than before, with my big and beautiful 40th birthday this year I can see it, feel it, and I know my something big is in there! I’m not afraid anymore…I am letting the universe propel me with its inertia and off I go! I can only imagine how amazing Tara’s course would be in aligning myself with my dream. I would be beyond grateful for an opportunity to participate. Thank you for allowing me to throw my pink cowgirl hat in the ring!

Congratulations, Lauren! Please email us with your contact information so you can claim your prize. 

Sending much love,

    Totally. Speechless. (And that doesn't happen very often, just ask my husband.) Unbelievably and totally humbled and incredibly psyched all at the same time. Thank you to Kelly Rae & Tara does not seem like nearly enough. Extra-super-duper grateful and amazed at your generosity. Hope to make everyone proud. Don't let anyone tell you wishing on stars doesn't work!

    I have loved watching the evolution of your spirit, art, and business life. I think I have one of your earliest pieces before you moved to CA, traded you for an Anthropologie rug if I remember correctly. Its one of my favorite pieces of art!
