I think about now everyone has given up on me with this blog.  I have had so much trouble since this new up-dated version came out. 

Last year I opened a new website with high hopes of it's success but I learned a lot about myself instead.  I found out that a traditional website is not my thing!  I got very busy with custom orders and spent most of last year playing a constant game of catch-up and having little time to spend on the actual website which required me to have inventory.  (That became a dirty word to me! haha)   Then the designers of the website template would update things and that made all kinds of chaos happen as things that were working stopped and somethings disappeared... it took the small amount of fun I was having and kicked it out the door.  So the big news is the website is closed and I have another blog to replace it!  It is the same URL as the website, dollyknickers.com.   My mentor and I are still working on the little details but it is working, just not much there as I haven't placed any post.  I want to use it to actually offer things to those that want what I make.  I will not take on any more custom orders as I find it impossible to be inspired with what is in someone else' head.  I would rather have people give me suggestions of things they would like to see and if inspiration strikes then I can surprise us all!  I just know that I can not afford the time it takes to do custom designs.  I have to spend that time creating what is in my own head and follow my own heart.

Anyway, I will be using the new blog for the Dollyknickers business and try to work on this one for pleasure and more personal to keep in touch.

I completely understand where you are coming from. I am and have been in the same boat SO MANY TIMES! Too much commission work over long periods of time makes me a dull girl. Congrats on the change and the new site!! (^_^)
