Before I begin to post my crafting story, I would like to thank a handful of special people who helped me get started with this venture. First of all I wish to thank my dear friend Sam, who is an awesome blogger. Just "google" Gollywobbles and she will pop up everywhere. Sam has been suggesting that I start a blog for quite some time and she has shared many of her experiences with me for months, thus inspiring me to get going already. When I wasn't understanding the fundamentals and language of blogging, Sam suggested that I purchase a blog template for starters. She recommended a wonderful graphic artist called "AmyBug's Primitive Attic". I visited Amy's website and was totally amazed at all of her beautiful graphics to choose from. I found one with an antique sewing machine which was appropriate for my business. Amy's original graphic for this was blue, but I didn't want that color, so I emailed Amy about maybe changing the background color and she customized it for me without any fuss at all. I must say that my blog template purchase was much less painful than attempting to create my own design. Amy made it a very pleasant experience and I thank her for her prompt and professional service . . . . and I highly recommend her for any type of primitive or country graphic designs. Finally I wish to recognize my sister Patti at Wild Berry Primitives and my niece Laurie at Down River Primitives. Each of them has recently created their own blog and they are currently creating beautiful dolls, pillows, etc. which they are successfully selling on eBay. I am so proud of both of them and admire everything they are doing with their crafts. Keep up the good work!
