The last couple of weeks have been pretty busy around Studio P and the Pettis household.

As I said in my last post, last week was bad enough, but this one, in a lot of ways has been just as bad. No kidney stone, but something that can often be just as painful — a deadline.

I’m joking, but just a little. See in addition to owning the studio, I also take care of the IT systems and do the websites and video work at Chilhowee Hills Baptist Church here in Knoxville. There are a lot of exciting things going on at CHBC these days, one of the biggest being the production of an all original album, the first of its kind.

It’s been amazing assisting with this project and seeing how it has all come together. David Stewart, the Worship Pastor at Chilhowee Hills, had the vision less than a year ago of doing this, and God has put everything in place to make it happen. From inspiration to the album release, which will be at Sunday night’s Hear Our Praises concert at Chilhowee Hills at 6 p.m., has been just a few short months.

My part has been constructing the website for the album, which like everything else, has been a bit of a whirlwind. The music and artwork for the album has been finalized less than two weeks, and developing the site was dependent on those two elements. That meant that I really couldn’t get started until just recently, and it all had to come together before Sunday night.

From Monday through Wednesday, I worked pretty much non-stop on the site and after some tweaks today we were able to go live this afternoon. It’s still a work in progress, but it’s a great start and I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.

The good news is that I’ll be able to get back to the business of Studio P now. Got a lot to show you, so watch for new posts coming soon. In the meantime, click on the picture below to take a look at the “Thirsty” website. Enjoy.
