What a great day! We woke to blue skies here in rainy Oregon (the rain came later in the day!) and planned a day together unpacking boxes that arrived from our January visit to the CHA show. We were also able to get a first look at our newly remodeled website. Both left us laughing until our sides hurt until the reality of the work ahead hit! Working in a new medium is exciting but also a bit intimidating. Another day together and the ideas will flow and projects will emerge like butterflies from a cocoon. There is nothing like the joy of creating. No greater freedom can be found than in the “letting go” of your mind, clearing it of worries and cares to begin with an empty canvas and working with your hands, no matter what the medium.

We are hoping that our newly designed website will be up on the internet by the end of the week. The excitement is beyond words! Without the help of Stephanie Saponas with her wonderful graphic designs and Thomas from the Cottage Collection website design, our little spot in the vast internet world wouldn't be possible. So thank you Steph and Thomas! Another creative medium.

I have been visiting other blogsites, enjoying thoughts and experiences of other women interested in creativity and small business. My latest finds were Nancy from Acorn Cottage and Cynthia's blog at Cynthia's Cottage Design. Cynthia is also having a Giveaway this week. Check them out!

Hi Karen,
Thanks for coming over to visit my blog! Looks like you have your hands full. How exciting to be starting up a new adventure! Can't wait to see your new website. My hats go off to the people who know how to navigate HTML and have mastered photoshop or dreamweaver.
Best of luck on your new adventure!
