Can you believe it?  After all this time, I am finally announcing the opening of my Etsy Shop!
It has taken me forever, mostly because I am so clueless when it comes to tech stuff.  I do want to learn how to be more proficient at technical things so I can do them myself, but it sure would be nice to have a Techie Friend so I could be gently guided through things, instead of having to bang my head against a brick wall every time I have to learn something new.
I do have to thank some people, because if it wasn't for them, I would never have made it this far.  A thank you to all the fellow online artists to whom I asked countless questions and that were so generous with their time and information, trying to get me to learn this stuff.  Your kindness and support is greatly appreciated.  Thank you to all those who gave me the encouragement to keep trying when all I wanted to do was give up.
And then there is my daughter.
She is the closest thing I have to a Techie friend.  When I went back to college it was she that saved many an essay that I thought I had lost when I pushed the wrong button.  And it was she that helped me to learn how to resize the photos of my paintings, which was preventing me from being able to get them up on my Etsy Shop.  I know she gets really frustrated with explaining things to me because she is already finished explaining how to do something when I am barely writing in my notes "Turn on computer..."  So a Big Thank You to my Baby ;) You are greatly loved.
Well, now that I thanked everyone, I hope you will all visit my Etsy Shop!  I think you will like what you see.  And this is just the beginning!  Now that I have my Studio and Etsy Shop in order, I am going to get going and get busy and paint, paint, paint all kinds of beautiful things I am sure you will love.  So please, go visit, and Enjoy!  
A thank you again to everyone for your support, and I hope you have a great weekend!
With Joy and Love,
Carol B.
