A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Painting Ebay Pretty Friends

I just returned from a trip to Colorado and found a comment from one of my P.E.P friends about my writing style and my blog. She liked it!!!!!!!!! Hey Devonia, you liked it!!!!!! I must admit, that made my day. We had been driving for 13 hours and I was tired, needed to check my selling sites, and found a friend had something nice to say to me. Devonia has a blog herself and I must add, a good one, filled with lots of pictures and mucho information. There is a part of me that envies her.....she clearly knows what she is doing with the computer and is one savvy artist. Thank you for the kind words. Ebay is full of talented artists and anyone who is worth their weight in salt has searched P.E.P and found this out themselves.
Our trip was wonderful. While most of America is still cold and chilly outside, we in the desert are heading into summer and already in the 90's. Colorado was indeed a treat for me. Green trees, snow on the mountains and snuggling under lots of blankets at night. At home it's a sheet for me and I still sweat!!!!! It's going to be a long summer.........my roses are already beginning to show crispness around the edges from the heat. Not even the aphids can't stand it. It's not a bugs world here, if the insecticide doesn't get you, the sun will for sure. The garden is alive with flowers and a heavenly scent that will please all the senses. Right now it's the smell of Jasmine, oranges, honeysuckle and roses. What more could a person ask for?????? Give me a minute, I'll come up with something for sure.......geez....never happy!!!

Blog or Website

To blog or to web, that is the question of the day. I'm ready to venture out and open a site of my own for selling my shabby, cottage one of a kind pretties, but how? Some say a blog is the way to go, it's free, just sell off the blog. Others tell me a website is the only way to go, but there are so many to choose from and that decision is not an easy one. After much debate among friends of mine on Painting Ebay Pretty, (for those of you that have never seached pep in the ebay search, you are truly missing out on a lot of talented artists!) I have decided to go the way of the website. Only time will tell if I have made a mistake. But even if that is the case, mistakes can be retified and blogs will be around for a long time to come.......to be continued
