My Own Website

Have I ever mentioned that I am married to a computer geek? If I hadn't, let me tell you now. I am married to a computer programmer. He's a consultant for Arris Systems in KOP (King of Prussia for those not in the Philly area).

So, when I have told family members in the past that I have a blog and an Etsy store, they automatically assumed that the Husband set it up. I've actually fought with people who wouldn't believe when I said, "No, no I did it all by myself".

So, why am I telling you this? Because, today I set up my own website using Google Pages. No help from the husband, I did this all myself. I'm awfully proud even though it's rudimentary at best. I still have 9 more patterns to upload onto the site, but I couldn't wait to tell someone.

The pic on the front I created in PowerPoint to showcase all my 14 designs. I borrowed (stole!) the idea from Tracie. Thanks!


The "Buy Now" links on my website are from Payloadz. I learned about this company through the Designer's group in Ravelry. Payloadz works in cooperation with Paypal so designers like me can offer downloadable patterns. For the icing on the top, the service is free until you start selling over $100/month. How great is that?

Hey - giving the geeks a run for their money! Your site looks great! I'd never guess it wasn't done by a 'professional'! You should be thoroughly proud of yourself x
