Hello World!

Caroline Devereaux

Welcome

I launched this new website to kick-start my new full-time profession. My wonderfully-supportive husband-to-be agreed that I could leave traditional work in order to establish a business doing something I love: making art. In exchange, I promised I'd learn how to cook.  Although I have been doing art my entire life, and taking commissions for nearly 10 years, art has always been relegated to a mental back-burner; a pastime that would never actually pay the bills. Now, you can read along as I put that theory (and myself) to the test.

This is only my 3rd 'official' day as a freelance artist/homemaker/wedding planner/home remodeler but I'd like to report that so far, things are pretty darn great.  

What's this blog for?

In short: Squarespace.com comes with blogging capabilities, so I thought, "I better start a blog to get my money's worth."  I have high hopes for blogging about the new discoveries I am making in any of the areas listed above as part of my newly-acquired profession. 

ARTIST  
Squarespace.com - I've been a Wordpress gal for quite some time, but since this service touts itself for displaying portfolios, I thought I'd give it a whirl.  My initial reactions were: "Dang! that's expensive!" but I splashed out because it has lots of built-in applications like e-commerce and invoicing. Also, I'd heard a lot people talk about how easy it is.  Reactions that came later: I'm not really too crazy about the layout function of content editor, or the fact that my image files aren't stored in a handy online library. On the plus side:  I started this blog.

HOMEMAKER  
I used a Magic Eraser for the first time on a staircase railing that had turned brown and gummy from finger-grease.  It worked really well!  So well, in fact, that I only cleaned half the railing so everyone could admire the difference. 

WEDDING PLANNER 
Surfed the web and decided that a good first step would be to make more money...

HOME REMODELER 

Let's focus on relocating the cat hair tumble-weeds before moving on to bigger projects.
