I have been working hard fine-tuning my site. This is definitely not as fun as time in the studio, but necessary just the same.
First up: SPEED!
My site has been slow since moving to a new host a couple of years ago. I tried to quicken up the code (only broke my site a time or two in the process), but ultimately decided to move to a new hosting company. My site load times went from 9-10 seconds to 2-3 seconds. Might not sound like much, but I feel like my site is flying.
Second: Watercolor Art
I have been painting and scanning in my images, creating custom art work on the site. With each new page refresh, the top image as a new twist. 😀
Third: Shop Update
I will still have my Etsy shop, but will be spending future energy on developing my shop here on my site — handmade glass beads, jewelry, fused glass, and watercolor art. Want a first peek/dibs? Check out my Facebook group. I post new work there a day or so prior to listing. I also post weekly updates on my Facebook page.
