As you may have noticed I have been a bit quiet on the blog recently, but what readers have not been able to see is the amount of work I have been doing behind the scenes. In addition to new DIY projects - the list is unending. I have been redesigning the blog with the help of website developer Kevin Hurley. It has been a long process, as we both can not quit our day jobs but finally we have reached a pivotel point and the new site should be up within the next few weeks. Hopefully in time for the blog's three year birthday! With the new design, other than looking great I hope the blog will be easier to navigate and accessible for our readers.
To support the redesign launch, I have reached out to a few friends whom are doing wonderful things with their passions and talents. Salt Surf, Borealchick Designs and Jammy have agreed donate products to Fourth Floor Walkup's Birthday Giveaways! Not only are the individuals who run these companies close to me, they make products that I greatly value. Please check the blog for details on these giveaways in April!
