Re-branding in process...welcome

Hi my crafty friends!

You may have noticed I've been a little out of commission lately - well, there are good reasons behind it!  About two weeks ago I had a leg injury while doing martial arts.  I managed to tear my calf muscle which put me out of martial arts commission for about 8 weeks.  Well, you know me and 8 weeks without doing martial arts is going to be an absolute killer for me.  So what to do?

Well, about the same time that happened I found out about a class that focuses on doing crafting online business.  I signed up and decided that since I'm going to be out of martial arts for a while I should re-work my online presence and learn some new practices while I'm laid up.

What does this all mean?  I'm starting to work on re-branding my site!  The first part you'll see is a new domain name for my blog but you don't have to worry about changing bookmarks or links.  Everything will work the same as before but my new domain name will be  Within a couple of days you'll probably see your RSS feeds and your e-mail delivery of my posts switch over to that name.

Why  Because when I became a Close to my Heart consultant 5 years ago it was because I fell in love with their stamps!  I have a huge and beloved collection of their stamps, have had that name on my business cards for years and really think of myself as primarily a stamper!  Plus, as my husband pointed out its a whole lot less for people to type!

As I learn new things in this class I'll be incorporating them into this site and hope you'll enjoy the enhancements as they come. Most things will be behind the scenes but I'm sure some (like a new name popping up) will catch your eye.

Thanks for being patient with me while I learn new things and heal up.  I promise to have artwork back this week as well as I'm finally able to get up and down stairs easily and visit my craft room more often!

I just wanted to say that I love your new name! I saw your post on Lain's message board and just had to come over here to tell you how perfect the new name of your website is.

Also, I have a couple of questions, so would it be possible to email you? I didn't see an address on your webpage. :)

Jayma -

I try to always get some lemonade out of my life lemons (LOL)! It could also be that I'm not happy unless I'm learning and being challenged - sometimes a character plus and sometimes a pain in the butt for my family! I'll be taking small pieces at a time but I'm hoping to be complete for the new year.

Thanks for stopping by!
