Life as a webdesigner

Hello sweethearts,

Did you have a happy valentine's day? I did...I'm grateful for every valentine's day that rolls around and I'm not up to my eyeballs in flowers. haha! This year I didn't do any arrangements.

I've spent the past month tossing around ideas for our website. The new layout and graphics are finished. Now I'm working on creating our pages (like: about us, contact, ect.) Some days I feel like banging my head against the desk; but I have now learned HTML. I've spent most of my time painting and working on the house, which leaves little time for the website and even less time for creating my florals.

Hopefully by the beginning of March our website will be up and running, then we can get on with the crafting! :)

Re-opening of our site

I've been thinking for a while about this. As you know, I hit a rough patch last year and thought seriously about closing Camellia Cottage. Instead I closed our booth in Salisbury, our lollishop, and our website.

Now that I've got my good sense back, I realize I need a website! So I'm going to work this week on getting us temporary page, so won't say the domain dosen't exist.

Camellia Cottage's business plan still needs a little bit of work. I'll be working on that this week, and trying to figure out where I plan to go from here. Keep watching the blog for our exiting plans for 2011!

Have a blessed day, and enjoy whats left of this weekend. :)

Welcome to a New Year!

Hello sweetpeas,

Welcome to 2011! I can't believe it is already a brand new year. I'm so excited about the opening of our new etsy shop. Please take a moment and come visit. :)

I have big plans for this wonderful new year. For a while, last year things looked pretty bad for Camellia Cottage. We were spending than we were making, and eventually I was forced to pull out of both my website and the space I had leased. I even thought about closing the business. So I have been thinking and I've decided to start off smaller this time. Not bite off more than I can chew! haha

Camellia Cottage is starting with the etsy shop. Then maybe...or maybe I'll keep the rest of our year's plan and surprise ya'll as we go along. :)
