The weather has been divine...even if it did get to 92 degrees yesterday (did I miss spring altogether?) and I've spent a good deal of time outside. Got the beds weeded (pretty much), our 9 tomato plants are in the ground and things are looking just fine. There seems to be huge leaps in the transformation in the plants and trees from one day to the next...amazing how quickly it all happens when the growth spurt really starts.
For the first time, we have some lovely tulips...the bulbs came from Holland as a gift from my niece who travelled there back in the fall.
I have to admit, it's getting hard to be inside working in the studio, when the air is so fresh and clean and the days are so gorgeous....but I have been working, even if not steadily. A newly finished piece....
The other big news is that I got my website finished....kind of in a hurry, since I thought we were going to be without internet for a time while the satellite got relocated. Because it's so easy to tweak, I thought I might as well get it out there for the world to see and have it available to help promote my work. You'll see a lot of framed pieces there that you won't find in my Etsy shop, along with some you may have seen. The great thing about this is that anything can be purchased directly from my website and it automatically goes through Paypal. So far, I have a section for framed pieces and another with a few found text pieces, but my task now is to decided which work should be on the website and which in my Etsy shop, since there's really no need to duplicate....although there is some of that now. The site is not perfect, but a good start and a work in progress....it's just so easy to make changes and additions, that it's not a big deal. I invite you to check it out and let me know what you think!
I think that's a pretty full report for the day! See you tomorrow for a found text posting...uh oh, that's tomorrow, I better get cracking! The problem is I just went outside to take the picture of those tulips and found out how absolutely gorgeous it is out there....think I'll have to spend some time this afternoon in the out of doors!!!
Have a great week everyone....thanks for reading this rather long post!!!
