So many little things. I still can't get the email from the website to work, but when I submit a support question, I always have to ask something else; why can't I see all of the website without edit menus like the catalog pages? Why don't all my .com pages go to my website? etc.

Now I have noticed that some of the pages have a different font or font size. And the backside information isn't all working like what Google wants in order to rank the pages. And how do I get the SEO numbers up? Maybe someone will read this and help with suggestions and without a bill of $500 to $2000!

At the same time I have continued working on the Critters. I am going to finish the Monet Frog "Sitting with the Waterlillies" Check .........

Since this is a blog in progress, it is a growing process. I have an idea to include what searching I have done to get this website going, but I often do that without stopping. LIke today, I was looking for good ideas about the footer. I found what I was looking for, but I didn't write down all the sites I looked at. And I still can't figure out how to get the search box to work. Simple directions for how my website work might be a good subject after I get it working.

The second idea is to include pictures of what Critters-n-Calico I am working on. Today I did work on the Dachshund in the rebel flag and the chicken covered in fabric with a pattern of fried chicken legs. The fabric is finished for both of them. Next step is to put .........

Okay, today I set the website to "Live" but I haven't told anyone yet. I want to keep looking at and for mistakes. Every time I look I see something else to change. I know those ugly mistakes are there. As this website is viewed, I will get messages about mistakes. I have to say "Good Luck Little Critters"

I keep looking around my website to see if I am ready to turn it on for the public. Is it ready?  So many Critters are listed and ready to go, pages Largest, Medium and Smallest. Specialty Critters are just a little weak. Still looking to add a slideshow. I have such a great idea for the blog after this is set up. Maybe all will be ready tomorrow. Calls have to be made to the website designer and domain manager. A real "Can Do" Right?

Have so many plans to finally get this done. Using the new work cabinet to keep everything organized, I have Critters to sand smooth, Critters to finish bottoms, Critters that need pictures, pictures to optimize for the website, descriptions for website and think about getting the website and design to work. Other than that, I want to paint a table, take care of neighbor's dog, laundry, and whatever. It seems overwhelming, but I will get it done. Maybe turn on the website before all Critters are ready?

Oh my. My big idea to get this website redone to look better and work better seems to be an enormous job that is never ending. Who knew I had so many Critters-in-Calico that need to find new homes. Between all this inside work, I still have the Critters in my head that need to be completed. I want to try painting furniture. I have a trailer to clean and upgrade so it can be sold. And there is the house; cooking, cleaning, laundry, hubby, and Lacy. Oh can't forget Twitter the canary. It is all going to get done and my Critters-in-Calico will find new homes.
