Lots to learn about this blogging lark

Well, I have always thought of myself as fairly good with computers, but this blogging lark is confusing. Jargon and terms I don't understand....I have already managed to start typing this blog in Hindi because I had enabled the wrong option!!!!

I never thought I would have a blog, but the online community at have persuaded me I should give it a go.

You see I have recently started making and selling jewellery, under the name Pretty Peyote. A hobby to stop my brain turning to mush now that I am a stay at home mum, after previously having a challenging job. But I only got as far really of setting up my online shop,, without really thinking of promotion.

A facebook page followed (become friends with Pretty Peyote), which has helped generate a few sales and some traffic to the Folksy site, but I really needed to do my bit to get more people to see everyone's great work at the site (as well as my own).

Don't worry I won't constantly bombard you with adverts for my new stock, although I might sometimes! MOTHERS DAY...hint, hint. But I'd like to let you know what I am up to craft wise, tell you what is inspiring me this week, and generally let you into a bit of the madness of my hectic life.

Hopefully as time goes on I might get a bit more technical with the old blog as I understand what I'm doing, but in the meantime bear with me, and keep blogging on.

By the way, my real identity is Dawn. Nice to meet you.
