New Wall Art, etc

Okay so here is the new wall art I created - yay!  Connecting, shaping and deleting nodes in Corel draw is painstaking LOL.  It took me several hours to do but it one solid piece no glue just removing material to create the butterflies.  I love the completed project.  It's 14 inches tall so it's pretty big.  I have another one with a backing too (pictured below). 

Tys has been working with granite and his results have been great too.  I'll post soon :) 

I've been muddling my way through technology LOL.  In regards to graphics, I'm not professional but considered myself to be pretty good and I can manage pretty well in most other programs. Well, I though that this would translate to social networking sites.  I can't tell you how wrong I was.  I set up a facebook account to find out later there is one made specifically for businesses -d'oh.  I now have to ask everyone to move to the business page. Not to mention the time spent banging my head against a wall trying to paste html,  XFBML, Iframe,.. etc. to website or other networking things.  I'm not even sure what the last two are LOL.

I find a lot of time I think about things that I tell my children about patience, not giving up. You might recognize this one -"don't stop, don't give up" - Yo Gabba Gabba. It's been running through my head (I think I need to talk to adults more LOL).  I find it's kind of funny that I ask my children to have patience that I find I sometimes lack (I just spent my whole evening working on a project that I lost, or broke - whaaa, sob!).   

I've been getting advice from other sellers on Etsy.  I've really been blown away with the talent and community on that site.  Hopefully soon I'll get the technology connected and up and running smoothly enough to start featuring other peoples work too.  Pay it forward for all the help I've been getting :)    Cheers!
