Well every one here it is, I thought it was time to get you lovely lot to take a look and give me your thoughts on the whole site.
I have learnt a fair amount about photography and how to use my camera. However I can clearly see the difference between the very first ones I did and the ones I did after learning a bit more, so I am going to retake a few photos.
Pay-pal has proved to be very hard to handle and while they say the process is easy.....they lie. Mind you to be fair, I expect it's me, as I am nearly all computer-ed out and it has been one hell of a learning curve. The wonderful Francis (with an i) is going to help me with the Pay-pal part of it all but right now is a bit busy, but it will get done.
In the meantime, I need to work on creating more stock, as I am almost out of it and I can't sell if I don't make. It's not just jewellery that I make and so at this moment in time I am holding back some pages, again 'cos of lack of stock.
Buddies, can you take a look a round and see what I have done and if you have time can you leave a comment in my guest book there, even if it is something that you feel isn't quite right, only I could do with feed back from people I trust and you are all on the trusted list. You'll have to click the above, only at the moment it's not fully live, I need to publish it in search engines, but want to get it right.
Also can you oh so clever people check my spooling mistooks and punch-chew-a-ion lol. We all know how bad I am at that. Sometimes I wonder how you lot manage to read my posts I do believe that I am about halfway through this now. Just need to sort out a few of the photos and decide on prices, add Pay-pal buttons and make more stock....not much then ha ha .
Remember people that I am not about to fall apart if you all tell me it is total pants, I have asked for you opinions and I will value them.
In case you are wondering why the name Lilly-Lu, when I was growing up I had an obsession with Lulu, and this is actually my families nick name for me and the name I most of them call me by, but only family dare call me that. Now, as you know my father's family are Polish and my fathers mother spoke terrible English but she had used to words loo loo for when she needed the toilet, when Nana realised that they were calling me the name Lulu, she went mad, saying that she would never call her only beautiful grand-daughter after a toilet. So she named me Lilly after her favorite flowers and Lu, as I didn't answer the name, but my head would snap around at the word Lu and so over the years I ended up with her calling me Lilly-Lu. As Nana was the person responsible for my love of crafting, taught me so much and gave the encouragement, I thought I would honor her by naming the shop Lilly-Lu, in actual fact I have been selling on and off under this name for years, so it seemed fitting to keep it.
I sold my first bracelet at 10, to my Nana's best friend and years later it came back to me, when her daughter died and left it too me.
Why Lia, 'cos my name is Julia and all the titles for my name were gone on blogger and they suggested Lia and the title of the blog, so that's how come.
EDIT:- sorry people, one last thing.
In order for me to enter it in to search engines I have to write a description for the web-site and I am totally stuck on this, so if you have any ideas I would be grateful, even if it's just a word or two. Thanks my lovelies.
