Where have you been!!!!

Hi,..... It's not you......it's me !. I have been having a hoot of a time setting up my new websites. Yes I did say websitesssss ! Not one but two. How crazy am I?

I decided as an artist to promote my work. To have my work available for others to view is important....aside from shows and exhibitions. I decided to set up a website.
Well.... that was a week and a bit ago.
Things are going very well. The set-up was a breeze. Go to http://www.etsy.com/ ,they provide user friendly instructions to set up a website for handmade items. It's really easy. Another site www.finerworks.com is a really great art website for beginners and veterans.

The more time consuming parts are making a banner & avatar. If you don't like doing it yourself there are others you can pay to do it ~ a good option! The other time consuming jobs are taking pics and listing your items but when you are done they look great ( you can't pay someone to do this ~ hmmm... a good business idea!). You can even go to the Forums to chat and ask people what they think. Don't worry~ all are very friendly and supportive.

So check out all of my hard work ~still in progress~. Send a comment and tell me what you think!
