New to blogging

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | |

I am new to blogging and very interested in learning more as I really don't know what I'm doing. This is my first attempt and I'm learning as I go. I have done this section a number of times as I look into another area and then when I go back everything I've entered has disappeared. Hopefully this time it will work correctly. I am looking for some helpful hints that will assist me with this (don't get technical). I am also fairly new in the metal art business, I design the art and run the business, my husband cuts and finishes our art. I am looking for a serious mentor to assist me in learning how to market, etc, a new business and hopefully miss some common pitfalls that I may not know about as yet.

Life at the "Oak" Tree

This a piece I made to donate to our AABA scholorship auction. An apprentice of mine said it was a acorn tree, not a oak tree so the name stuck.
