Hi everyone! I hope you're having a good week!

This week has been a bit weird for me so far. Some of you may have noticed that my blog was down for a couple days...not exactly what I'd hoped for, but I think it's all set now.

On the bright side, I'm really excited to get to share some changes around the website with you guys! A huge thank you to S, who definitely went above and beyond (and then beyond that) to make this happen.

The biggest change is probably the name of the blog. "Not What I Planned" served me really well as I started experimenting and exploring this little corner of the internet (not to mention directed a weird amount of web domain search traffic my way). However, as things progressed and, well, became more planned, the name seemed to fit less and less.

For me, "DW draws" is a space that can grow and change with me. I wanted a name that conveyed a work-in-progress, since that's definitely how I feel about this journey I'm on.

The smaller changes have more to do with streamlining the blog's design -- I like how the more minimalist look lets my photographs stand out -- and with setting up a professional website for myself. The new site will make it easier for me to combine the different things I do (the blog, my Etsy and Society6 shops, a more complete portfolio of artwork, etc.).

Since I'm brand new to web design, I'd love any feedback you guys have on the blog redesign and :) I hope you like them!
