Flower and Website Updates

February Flower: Violet
Colored Pencil
8 x 10 inches

I may not have been updating my work recently, but I have been busy! The colored pencil piece above is the February Flower: that means I'm still...about 5 months behind. By September, I'll be 7 behind at this rate...or I guess 5 ahead. It's just how my mind works, so no need to try to figure it out. I'm working on a lily of the valley flower, which is not even the flower for March. Oh least it's one in the series. (I've completed the ones for Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb).

I have also been updating my website and trying out sitekreator. I used to update my website pretty frequently when I used yahoo, but there was something that I wanted to use that yahoo would not allow...and now I can't even remember what that was. It might have been an EASY sleek slideshow application that I am still looking for. Whatever it was, I then moved over to Godaddy. It's OK - the people are friendly, but I find their website very awkward to navigate. Updating tends to be slow and even more awkward. I've been lazy and have not corrected the scrolling on my website. So, I think it's time for me to move on soon.

Since working with Sitekreator, for now, it looks like my new friend. I haven't decided if I want to plunk down the money since it is more than godaddy and much more than yahoo. However, it's extremely easy to update, there are more functions that are available on yahoo, and there is a built in slideshow. I still need to find the one that it's in my head...that I know is out there for those that are tech savvy. If you're curious as to what mine looks like now, go to and let me know what you think of my trial website...the top photos are stock from the site that I'll be replacing if I go forward with them. I'll also be organizing it a little more so not all my pieces are under the one gallery heading. We'll see!
