This is my prototype for http://www.tnteventsinc.com . I chose a semi-artsy look because that is what TNT Events promotes, arts and crafts events. I wanted to go with a festive look and was inspired from a photo in the first phase of this project, so I found a Flickr jpg in the Creative Commons that showed a craft festival and glowing lights. I wanted to give the Homepage a warm, artistic, modern feel. I have been involved with craft fairs somewhat like the Renegade Craft Fair out of San Francisco, so I infused a little of my own feeling about such events, which tend towards Etsy-ish and indie.
I posted two versions, one with a pinkish frame and one without. Still undecided on that! Any comments?

Hi fellow classmates and peers. My name is Adrienne Spring Beatty. I live in Nevada City, California, about an hour from Sac City College. I live much closer to Sierra College but was lured to Sac City because of it’s awesome GCOM department and my love of downtown Sacramento. I love being creative, it is my true love. I play music, and have played shows around this town and up in Nevada City. My band’s name is Coal Beautiere, a little band made up of me and compadre, Art. Art and I are also married, but I hate the “h” word, and would rather a substitute for it.
I really loved learning Dreamweaver last year in a class at Folsom Lake College and I also like learning bits and pieces of code and website basics. I built a website from scratch a few years ago, and it was as basic as basic could be, but I loved doing it, even from the tedious code perspective. Which is probably why I am in school at the moment at all. I was lured to the idea of graphic design and website design. I still would like to go in both directions, utilizing design skills and creating websites simultaneously. I have some ideas on the kinds of sites I would like to hone in on, or a target market for my one-day potential skills.
This blog will be about what inspires me to be a better designer. I want to upload bits and pieces of inspire, eye candy, design ideas, and websites that fuel my fire. To start off, I absolutely LOVE Halloween antiques, and old school Americana items in general. Happy Halloween!
