It's hard not to get demotivated and feel rather lack luster about online selling. If I had known then what I know now springs to mind alot and I really wish I had of had friends that were doing similar ventures so that I could of emailed or rang them for help, instead of sitting shouting at the PC and tearing my hair out!
Happily I have met so many kind, talented artists and realised at one time or another we all want and feel the same. Whilst there are many that spring to mind; I would like to name a few that I class as friends who always have a cheery word and pom poms at the ready when I need a little cheering on;
Heather at The Pine Cone Tea Cup, who has made my family shed tears with her custom designed quilt!
Elfie at Painting from the Heart, always with words of encouragement and virtual hugs!
Eileen at Painting by Eileen who always has a positive outlook and shares her awesome wildlife pics!
Donna at Threads of Magique who I enjoy having little chats with, a very interesting lady who recently started a new venture herself.
Melinda at Just Scraps and Things has done me some wonderful custom cards and bag toppers and is just a lovely person;
And last but not least is Amber aka Mommy the Marketer and also Tate Skye Designs who's blogs, advice have just been a super help to me to make things alot clearer!
Also in a year I am happy to say I have improved my photography and kissed goodbye to my homespun beloved checked background.

It took me days to set up this blog page and in minutes I type this, but I am disappointed that my blog gets left out~alot! Facebook you can catch me on daily http://www.facebook.com/HancoxHomesteadFan, it is all about priority and balance; something I have not yet perfected although it has come along way in a year!
I am busy gearing up for Christmas adding listings to My two Etsy shops, Zibbet and Artfire studios and still working on setting up our Driving Range which we plan to open to the public the end of next May. I should really blog more often to keep connected to you all and whilst I may not send a like or a note on a daily basis, you are all appreciated and got me to my First online Birthday~Thank you one and all!
