An attempt to post an image......

This is our cat Smokey. The picture was taken by my son Sean.
So I've found the first snag in actually have to write stuff. So if you have Blog Block your in big trouble :)

The second snag is I need a camera...something simple....point and shoot.........hint, hint.

Isn't it amazing what people put on their blogs. If you have nothing to do you can waste a whole day just going from one blog to the next in a never ending circle. It's mind boggling......bloggling.

I'm sure that this blog will evolve into something else over time as I decide what purpose it will actually serve me. Certainly it is a valuable tool to sell my wares but I will have to create something to sell......ah......snag number three.

In order to set up my Etsy store or to sell anywhere in Ontario/Canada I will have to get either my old retail license back or a new one. I have already gone on line......after much painful searching and suffering....and found the government site where I did a name search to see if I can use "My Tate Gallery" as a business name. It only cost $8.00 which wasn't bad. The last time I went through that exercise was in 1982 with my mum and my kids in tow. I had to physically visit the government office and stand in several lines and it cost a lot more than $8.00.

I'm A Blogger!

I have no idea what I'm doing but I think it will be an interesting learning experience. It took me ages to figure out where to post anything. Now, if I leave will I be able to find my Blog again? Eeeek!

Right now I'm just trying to work out a background and to find free clip art if possible. I found some clip art and a background......:) It's kinda fun. You can go crazy deciding what to put up. So now I have to figure out how to add badges....hmmmm.
