New Website & Taking A New Path

After months of very hard work by my husband Chris, my new website is up and running and ready for business.

I'm so thrilled with the way it turned out, he worked so hard on it and I know he is thrilled it is finally finished. It is the polar opposite of my last website and features the kind of work that I'm now interested in creating and selling. I've updated and redone photos...changed the layouts, I have all new catagories, a new and updated professional bio and have used my own artwork as the backgrounds for all the pages.

I'm going down a new path with my artwork that I'm very excited about. My site address is still the same: http://www.artfulcreations.biz/ . As you are looking around, should you find any areas that don't work, pages don't load, nothing is there, any mistakes we've made, please let me know. While I'm still in the process of going over everything, it is easy to miss things.

Thank you Siobhan, Janet, Jo & Rachael, I'm so excited about the new site being finished and put up. I'm also in the process of ordering a new blog that will coordinate better with the new site so, that is exciting too.

Hi Ruth,

I am back from an unintentional two week blogging break, and imagine my surprise at seeing your new background... double take... asking myself, "Am I in the right blog?" The lavender is very soothing. And I love the photo above; I'd really love to be walking along that path in the photo! I thought the post showing your tin in Kathryn Bechen's home was wonderful. So great to get to see your work in its place of honor. :-)

Blessings,
Christi

Hi Ruth,

The new site is just fabulous! I didn't have any problems at all navigating - it's a very easy site to get around. Your husband did an excellent job! The cups and mousepads are such a good addition to your offerings.

Congratulations! I wish you lots and lots and lots of success!
