featured & graphics pages now have a little share menu at the bottom of the right sidebar
you can easily make posts linking here on your social media, copy the page url, see a printer-friendly version, and more!
scroll past the header for access, click the [+] icon for more options

SO... i think i've finally got a satisfactory grid + flexbox layout WITH responsive design for smaller devices -- anything under 500px switches to block/row display. I tested it out using the Chrome & Firefox consoles, and also my phone. please feel free to test it on your device(s) too
i've got two options: one with the header & footer as bookends, and the other w/ navigation & sidebar
gonna sit with these awhile, try and get some feedback before i implement. background colors are temporary visual aids. anyways, i want a vertical sliding navigation menu (buttons on the left column) to come down from the header in v1, and then in the @media rule (responsive) it'll stay there
finished all my code spring cleaning! ❀❀❀ that'll be it for a while until i re-do my layout with grid & flexbox
check it! i did this with my good brain! there's a few things i want to change in the overall layout, but for all intents & purposes there it is folks. color-coding the sections helps me SO MUCH
suck it, bad brain!
bad brain day, fussing over code, in the process of making pages a 3-column-grid instead of using side margins and negative numbers
ended-up undoing a whole shitton of work because i got too confused and jumbled. starting fresh some other time
guess who's been learning about flexbox: c'est moi
i made the mistake of trying to just smash some code into my page to make it do what i wanted, but alas, twas a mess and did not work at all. so i started from the beginning instead
scaffolding, kids. scaffolding
I'm about halfway through this tour from Mozilla, just got through proportional sizing - flex: 1, flex 2, etc - and used it for the bottom part of my homepage
wrong path, mate
updates will be sparse for a bit, likely just pre-scheduled Freebie Friday graphics. MAYBE some new featured content in the form of a Threadless shop update? it depends on if i have time/energy to finish the next batch of collages
last night we had a crafty gals night with cards! pooled our resources, put on our design hats, rolled up our sleeves, then went into worker bee mode to make a stamp assembly line, fold inserts, address a stack of envelopes, whew! one of my friends has a Cricut and it's really freaking cool, you can put a marker in there and have it write things? really cool & also helpful when you have like 30 cards. we joked about telling people that we wrote them freehand, we're just that good. thank you J & K (& L)!
*RSS feed is live!* i wrote it my damn self and will also be maintaining it my damn self
some more things:
as a special treat here's a lil peek at my to-do list, behind the scenes, the curtain unfurls
alright folks we got a few updates to get into so buckle up
ok, so like i JUST wanted to add a graphics page where i could have all my freebie graphics for viewin & downloadin, INSTEAD i ended up styling all the inline/block elements to be all screeny and whatnot, plus fussed with the layout on featured pages, plus plus did some cleaning etc which was then offset by all the extra crap i had to add for the screeny whatnots to display correctly lol
i'm gonna take away the floats on featured eventually bc i don't like them afterall, but right now my wrist is acting up so i'm out
I liked this monitor + screen layout so much that i coded it into the blog feed on the homepage, including the scrollbar. visual continuity, holla
i also made a div specifically for scrollbar content above a certain height and coded that into: home, featured, and these blog posts. what i used before was a p tag with an id, which was ok enough except when i wanted another div inside (like caption) and the scrollbar got broken. learning, learning, learning...
it'd be fun to code some kind of, like... monitor stand for these to sit on top of?? i'll try doing that... some other time... right now i'm going stir-crazy and i need to get OUT. people to see, errands to run, sunlight to photosynthesize... see ya!
IT'S REALLY COLD!!!! stuck inside!!
my goal is to generate an RSS feed of the aforementioned blog so ppl can like & subscribe for updates
the guestbook is open if you feel like giving me some feedback, saying hi, writing a poem... etc
my guestbook is live! write me something! how's my driving? how did you get here? what year is it? who am i??
experimented with inline vs block vs inline-block, trying to make things all standardized so it's easy to add content AND have it look nice without a lot of extra futzing. also clean code... .. agh
i'm.... . . fussy : ~ )
cleaned-up unnecessary HTML, streamlined .css, looked into a guestbook (coming s o o n ? ), added this update area
I spent like.... . . a whole entire day coding some mobile phones in html/css/js so that they would a)look how i wanted, and b) do certain things when the home buttons are pressed. check them out on my call me page!!! : o )
