and the winner is.....


Went to a really great conference the other day hosted by ROGERS TALKs and it was all about small biz'ness's.  They were giving out prizes and one was at the end of the conference for the best twitter feeds during the presentations.
"And the pair of signature red converse running shoes (that was the schtick that all the presenters were wearing) goes to....PETRA R!"  lol

They look good!

Having a wee design business is hard

When you get into working from home on your own little design business, I swear you have to become a jill-of-all trades!  And that gets annoying at times!  I have to be and do everything and well SEO! That's so time consuming!  I have a few business partners I can utilize but I get too independent sometimes and their timelines don't always match to mine!  So do I carry on?  Yes.  Being creative is fun still but its time to find new people to work with so that growth and fun times are tenfold.
It's been a great summer and I've designed a few sites! Some I've had input in - others have been all the clients idea!  When you're creating people's visions,  you have to find the courage inside just to zip the lips and give 'em what they ask for!
It's been a slice.
I'm currently working on this...

I've done these....

A little bit about what I'm working on.....

One can never re-use enough the expression "I've been busy!"...but I have.
I've created a few new websites and am in the process of finishing another (if they can get their stuff together with their content!) and mocking up a new design.  It's really not enough but with kayaking, cycling, beach picnics, sailing, pet sitting and just the summer laziness - it's enough.

Worry free pet care

It all started years ago when a friend asked me to sit for her cats......then a friend of her friend called and before you know it - "good petcare word" is out and I've found myself in the awesome company of not only new lovely people but I now have an array of dear pet friends that I take care of on a regular basis! Works for me! Sometimes I get a request for references so I've started gathering a few here along with pictures of some of the "pets" I take care of. It's a pleasure to be of service.

Life would be better if.....

Hmmmm I so don't want to be one of those people who only blogs every once in awhile....but that's turning out to me me! Waaaaaaaaa! Where does the time go?

They say as you get older time flies. I don't know about you but my days are going into light speed! 

The last 3 months have been challenging in that I've been taking care of both my sisters who have had serious health issues.  Being a caregiver, a woman, a mother, a friend, an entrepreneur, and a helper-freak....well....somethings gotta give. And it's been the social media time that goes by the wayside first. Hey, we all have these times in our lives and my motto is; Smile.  This too shall pass.

My other motto is; If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

Any guesses where that came from? 

Thumper said it in "Bambi". Man that Walt Disney was right on.  I was traumatized in two ways.  That saying (which changed my life forever) and Bambi's mother being killed. Which by the way probably traumatized everyone as a kid.

Now that we're on a roll for sayings here, I have one more for you that rocks my world.
