A very whiny me just sent off an e-mail to W begging for a little layout help for an ad. It’s the simplest thing imaginable and I can’t do it. Several years ago I took InDesign and now I can’t remember a single thing. My mind is truly a sieve. Woosh, gone. *Sigh*.
There is so much to do when trying to run a little on-line shop. Advertising and communications takes up the biggest chunk of time. Creating is nearing the back burner and it seems all backwards. Hm?
And the computer: friend or foe? When i can figure out what I’m doing it’s fabulous. When I can’t even receive my e-mail because of a really big bad error I made, it’s not good.
I feel I’m rather the poster girl for an anachronism: “She stitches, bakes, gardens, write letters by hand but glazes over in the computer maze.” Still, what are my choices? I’ve started an on-line business. What an irony!
On the to-do front I need to have someone take my photo for my little interview. Truth: I’d rather go to the dentist. Honestly. Behind the camera is good fun, in front, not. Just how old a photo do you think I could get away with on this one? It’s not like computer dating. Maybe I can drum up something from the shoebox. 🙂
And if things weren’t big enough I added another Etsy site, Dahlila Found (not open just yet, but there). I just really needed a space to sell my stash, paper goods, book parts, scraps, buttons, great finds I don’t need, but some Etsians could surely use. And if all works well, it’ll give me a bigger yarn allowance. 😉
Oh . . . suddenly very tired. And I have a stack of library books to read. Goodnight all, d.
P.S. this is my new Dahlila Found avatar. I typed it myself on a manual typewriter. Remember those?
