Sitting on the otherside of...

original artwork
I have known one of my strengths is I like to take a project and make it work which has always served me well as an Office Manger in my daytime jobs.  So I applied the same tenacity and perseverance to this project.

Yes, I am sitting on the other side of the finish line.  I have diligently been working on building my website where I can sell my artwork.  This has been one of my dreams for a long, long time.  I knew NOTHING before I started down this path.   My friend Heather Hanson pointed me in the right direction, I got all pumped up and I just began.  Wait a minute.  That previous sentence made it sound like I started right away but that isn't true.  I purchased the domain name in April and I actually didn't start until August.  It seems that being a slow beginner may be part of my DNA.  There was a time when I was weary and my friend Kelly Hoernig was there to provide me with support and a pep talk.  She said things to me that I needed to hear.   Along the way I had detours and unpleasant distractions.   My butt got sore from all the long hours sitting in front of the computer.  My index finger is tender from scrolling my mouse forward and backward.  There were times when I wasn't sure I would ever be able to grasp all the nuances that go with building a website.   Now I am familiar with HTML codes.  Next I am learning about SEO's.  Yikes!

The night that I pressed the publish button my husband was standing beside me holding my hand.  We both smiled!   I beleive he was just as excited as I was.

In life, as well as in the virtual world, we need each other.  Success isn't a solo act.  I am grateful for everyone who has provided encouragement and support while I travel this creative path.

I am asking that you check out my website and help me spread the word by posting a link on your site.  Thank You very much in advance.
