"Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry" - book website

When we last visited Barbara, she was experiencing a calamity of epic proportions.  After four days of solid work on her website using iWeb ... things turned ugly.  Over 20 hours of trying to ftp her website to Go Daddy were rewarded with nada ... zip ... zero. 

Even though haggard, near tears and ready for a breakdown, Barbara, who had not gotten out of her pajamas all day, could not garner the sympathy of her family.  Their exasperation was palpable. She begged their forgiveness, but persevered in her goal.  Another day at the computer ... at the WIX website builder ... and the skies parted. Tada!  Eureka!  Here is what she made ...


Thanks for visiting and for your encouragement ... Barbara's family thanks you, too!

P.S.  In all fairness to her family, they are the ones who cooked, cleaned, and did all her laundry for the week. :-)

I think my last post comment was you would be back celebrating. It's amazing how pajamas can solve problems. I have had a few of those days myself. Cheers!
