It's blog feature day!

Today I am the featured artist on the Joyful scraps blog. This is a project I created using the embellishment of the month pack. The saying around the frame is ...

What if ... you were proud of how far you had come, and had faith in how far you could go?

You can see the whole blog article here .... and if you leave a comment you can be in the running for a Martha Stewart prize :D

Thanks LeAnne for featuring me!!!

Time to get organised!

During my travels around some of the amazing pages there are to 'Like' on Facebook I happened across Build a Little Biz. I have spent a good portion of today reading their blog and finding some amazingly good advice on how to turn your hobby into a little business.

So ... I decided it was time to get my act together and pull my various online presences into order! Today I built a little website using Weebly and now Hello Dollies has it's own little website. Granted ... it's nothing flash quite yet, but I'm still working on it LOL. You can click here to go to the website.
