I am so excited. I've actually had real people visiting my website. Who'd have thought? I actually didn't think anyone would ever find me and visit. Given how many wonderful designers are already out there, I really never thought that anyone would want to become a follower. But someone actually did--want to that is. Unfortunately, it took some time to figure out how to add that feature to this site. If I was using Blogger(TM) it would be easy. However, Google(R)
is no longer supporting the 'Friends Connect'(TM) aspect on outside websites and I've been trying to understand Google+(TM) but I think that costs money. So for now I think that I'm going to have to do this the old fashioned way and create a mailing list. This way, when I've created a new blog post, I can alert people who are interested in following my site. I'll send out an email letting you know that a new post has been submitted and include a link to that post. I'm sure there will be a few kinks to work out but I'm hopeful that this will work out. I'd certainly love for you to join me on a regular basis.
Until my next post which will be an anniversary card on I'm working on...
This is site is just getting underway. Please excuse the mess. Check back often for updates. It is not built up very much because I'm just getting ready for a challenge in Oct. Little by little, it will get there!
Less than 10 days into my blogging career and I'm already having to change how I do things.
If you have been a previous visitor to this blog, you may have noticed how basic the blog is. There are just too many things that I can't do here...
*I want to have followers--the best I can offer is a mailing list to let people know I've posted something new.
*I want to add a field in the comments section for people to add their email address and/or website address if they want--can't do that.
*I had someone request that I turn of 'word verification' because she was afraid that I would lose out on a lot of comments otherwise--can't do that either.
*There is no way to create a post archive.
*There is no way to do a search within my blog.
*There is no way to create labels to make it easier for people to navigate through the site.
And the list goes on...
Due to issues with the basic features of the blog component of this website, I have relocated my blog to BloggerTM. This website will remain so that I still have a place to keep my image galleries. However, if you would like to continue to check out new posts you can now find my blog at:
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come follow me in my new home!
...Designs with Distinction
Hi! My name is Lisa and welcome to my personal website. Whether drawing, painting, cross-stitching, card making, or doing nail art, I've been 'creating' since I was knee high to a grasshopper. Over this past year I've really gotten into the world of card making and nail art. I know that there are already a lot of amazingly talented card makers, digi stamp designers, and nail artists out there and I've been learning a lot from them. I've been wanting to enter some card challenges but need a gallery to display my creations. So, voila! I'm finally following through on creating a personal website to share my creative endeavours with the world.
