It’s Official…KathyMillerTime ‘s New Website Design


KathyMillerTime celebrates The Art Of Living…

ART… FAMILY… FRIENDS… FOOD… HOME & GARDEN… ENTERTAINING… LIFESTYLE… TRAVEL… SPORTS… AND TAILGATING…

THE IDEA OF LIVING WELL.

KathyMillerTime began as a small painting project, celebrating all the parts of life I enjoy.

I love to paint. I love football, food, family, friends and tailgating…not necessarily in that order. What started in 2013 as a “Tailgating Through The South” painting series soon morphed into something larger with my tailgating blog. I discovered readers enjoyed the tailgating adventures,

but also were interested in my other stories. Tales about hiking in the mountains of North Carolina and the hills of Tennessee (with a few bear and snake encounters) …

 and simply celebrating life and the art of living.

 My philosophy…

Tailgating: for my football loving fans. After rooting for my favorite team, the Tennessee Volunteers, attending Florida games as a Gator Mom, and traveling to away games around the SEC, I painted a “Tailgating Through The South” series that celebrates the special school traditions and unique tailgating spots of each of the 14 Southeastern Conference schools. Each painting richly captures the essence of its school’s culture, campus, culinary creations, and people; always including a tailgate.

Art & Painting: I graduated from The University of Tennessee with a degree in Textiles & Clothing/Merchandising. After a successful career as a buyer and Divisional Merchandise Manager with Proffitt’s Department Store, I began painting to satisfy my creative longings. While living in Ponte Vedra Beach, I took art classes with Ellen Diamond, a well-known artist and teacher. Even after moving to Amelia Island, I continue to travel to Ellen’s class for weekly lessons.
My favorite painting subject other than tailgating??? Flowers, landscapes and  tablescapes.  Original paintings are currently available in the online gallery  Please contact me for purchasing information.

Home & Garden: As a Textiles & Clothing major in college, I took many interior design courses along with arts and crafts. I have loved working with interiors and garden architecture throughout many home building projects. As an artist I also enjoy painting interiors and tablescapes.

Lifestyle & Travel: When traveling to the college campuses for my Tailgating series, one goal was to discover special restaurants (white tablecloth or dives) unique to that school or town. As I travel the country I continue to carry on this tradition. No fast food for us!

WHAT’S NEW ON THE SITE???  I hope you will agree the new KathyMillerTime site is much more INTUITIVE.

Let’s move from left to right at the top of the site on the header…These 6 categories (Home…Meet Kathy Miller…Art Gallery…Signature Recipes…The Art of Living (blog)…Contact)  will always remain the same on any page you go to.   In other words you can always return to the home page even after browsing signature recipes.  Or you can hover over The Art Of Living to decide which category interests you….Tailgating & Homegating?  Lifestyle & Travel?  Food?

(Mobile and tablet readers…the universal mobile menu button is in the upper right corner…click and the categories pop down!)

The Home page gives you an overview of KathyMillerTime…

Meet Kathy Miller gives you a little history about why I do what I do!

Art Gallery features original Kathy Miller paintings and also Tailgating prints available for purchase.(Don’t be afraid to contact me with any questions….I love talking about my paintings and their inspiration).

SIGNATURE RECIPES  (I am capitalizing this because readers have asked for a simpler way to search for my recipes). They are all here easy to find in several categories…By school (if you’re planning a big tailgate and want to serve up some of the opposing team’s fare) Appetizers…Salads…you get the picture.

The Art Of Living is the new name for my blog, replacing the old “Tailgating Blog”, which obviously now encompasses many other categories.  (And not to worry all my old stories are still here!)

Contact is exactly what it says…if you would like to contact me with a purchase request, a sponsor opportunity, a creative partner idea…Please do so.  I love to hear from my readers!

I hope you will enjoy the new KathyMillerTime site.  I worked with a fabulous web design and internet marketing company, PMCJAX.  Thank you Andre and Shane for tirelessly walking me through the process. I highly recommend their services.  Their professionalism and personal attention to detail made the transition easier than expected.

Thank you Maureen of  Digital art concepts for the original site development…your expertise in the art of blogging opened a new chapter in my life.

Thank you to photographers and creative partners
