The next step

My last post was about moving forward and launching the Hibernate & Create website.  It's launched!  It's an ever-evolving website as I develop the content and site structure.  It's been exciting to see the new platform to connect and inspire creatives!    And it's only in it's infancy.

What's next?   The next step.

The next step will be working to move my DegreesbyKelli brand to it's own home.  A cute little web home all of it's own.   I've loved having it here at; but when I think about brand identity, it is a little confusing to say artistically that I am DegreesbyKelli but that you should go to to learn more about my art. will still have a place; but it will be more about my personal adventures, maybe some "deep thoughts" and definitely a space to share about Squeaky Milo.

Carry on friends - I'll be working on the new website.

Moving Forward!

All good things must evolve!

I started this blog as a way to explore my world.  Then for a while it took a holiday and became the home of Hibernate and Create - a landing page for information on the 31 Days of Creativity Challenge and then a place to host information on my first creative retreat held in January 2018 in Omaha, Nebraska.  Trust me, hibernating and creating is exactly what you want to do in the winter months in Nebraska.  It is one of the times when I am most productive.

Anyway, I'm excited to announce that I'm moving Hibernate and Create to it's OWN webpage!  It's a work in progress as I continue to build out the content and visual imagery.  But is has the basics migrated from this page to that page.

Check it out!  And connect with me on Facebook via both the Hibernate & Create page and group!

This page is going back to random ramblings about my world!  Though, if you want the most up-to-date "stuff" you are best of in the land of Instagram and Facebook via @DegreesbyKelli

Keep creative my friends!
