I have been ambitious. I have been making jewelry for years with the intention of selling it eventually. I have been paying for an ArtFire shop since I got in on the ground floor and I had a really low locked in rate. But it was a pain to even add my jewelry so of course I didn't.
I decided over Labor Day that this was going to be my year. I opened up my new store, Shaiha Designs. Next up was/is advertising and I couldn't think of better advertising then this blog. Especially the huge fashion hop, Fall Fashionista, that I participate in twice a year is coming up in October. And I will be sponsoring myself by giving away a gift certificate to my store.
As part of the advertising, I wanted to get my home away from, this blog, all prettied up. So I found a template that I really like and set it up. Isn't it pretty now? And that wasn't just a rhetorical question. I would really like to know what people think. Is it easily readable? Or do I still have it too cluttered?
Part of my housecleaning was finally setting up this blog with its own domain. Notice the lack of the blogspace in the address? My blog is no longer part of a huge apartment building but has its own home. Aw....room to grow.
