Salutations! Welcome to the Busy Queen P’s new castle! After months of collaborating, designing, revising and redesigning, my site is finally here! Countless hours of meticulous planning and research were spent in the creation of the final design of this blog. Those who have known me for years will attest to the fact that I score a staggering 12 in the super OC scale of 10… and the people who worked with me on this project will confirm it. 🙂 I think it turned out wonderfully! Don’t you agree?
At first, I wanted a silhouette of a woman on the go. Someone who was doing three things at the same time but was still poised and in command. Then someone brought up the idea of a girl on a balcony , coffee mug in one hand and facing a computer. The initial drawing looked good but I have yet to write on a balcony overlooking the city and I don’t drink coffee.
I wanted a silhouette that truly represented me and I wanted the rendering to have royal elements. After many, many attempts, I finally approved the one shown below.
Every girl has at one time or another dreamed of being a princess . The BQP’s tiara was patterned after the headpiece I wore on my wedding day.
Necklace and bracelet
I got a beautiful necklace for my birthday last year. I thought it would be appropriate for the BQP to wear this elaborate and elegant neck piece. The graphic artist really did a fantastic job in creating a vector version of the necklace. It looks exactly the same as the real one!
The bracelet is also part of my collection.
The initial drawing showed a the girl carrying a pen. The truth is, I’m always looking for a pen inside my bag! I decided to change the pen to a phone. This essential gadget keeps me connected, allows me to take pictures and serves as my notebook.
I truly believe that beautiful things are conceived by ingenious minds, crafted by masterful hands and realized by determined persons. I am very grateful to all the people who helped in making my vision become a reality. I especially want to thank ISA LACUNA, my fellow blue eagle, whose skillful hands deftly drew the BQP’s silhouette. ISA, you are the consummate artist! You understood what I wanted and gave me so much more than I expected. The digital nose job is all I’ll ever need in this lifetime! 🙂 The background design was also made just for the BQP by Nikki Sunga.
THE BQP’S MESSAGE
Now that this beautiful stage is set, I am more than excited to share my stories with all of you! Please feel free to comment, ask or suggest. I will be only too glad to hear what you have to say.
Finally, there are three things that I hope my stories will give you – information, inspiration and the power of imagination. This is my quest.
KEEP ON READING, ROYALS!
