...figuring out how to add a video to Blogger

30 Days and Counting...It's Almost Handmade Cavalcade Day

It's almost that time of the year again - just 30 days until the 4th annual {NewNew} Holiday Handmade Cavalcade! Mark your calendar for December 3, from 10am - 6pm.  This year we are headed to Williamsburg Brooklyn and the fantastic space at Public Assembly. It is going to be a day full of food, fun, shopping, end even drinks!

Of course since this is a {NewNew} event you can expect goodie bags.  We’ll have them waiting for the first 200 shoppers in the door.  And don’t forget about the raffles, this year each one will be themed.
Visit the blog where you can read more about the Cavalcade and The {NewNew} in general.  The Handmade Cavalcade site is up and running as well.
Check out the rest of my holiday event schedule, I will be as some terrific shows.

Throwing a New Website Design Out There

Were you as excited as I was about the launch of Lion?  I was counting the days for it’s release, I had my play by play prep and download instructions and when the day came everything went fine.  Except for the fact that somewhere along the line I failed to notice that I would be losing access to several older applications - in particular my archaic version of DreamWeaver.  
Just days after upgrading I went to update my website with new show dates and “Uh Oh!” yep that when I found out, DreamWeaver version zero.zilch was not supported.  Now I have never sworn at the good folks in Cupertino until this happened.  Was it them? Was it Adobe? I didn’t care, in order to edit my site I was going to have to go in and edit it in HTML  Rrrrrrrrr, and that is not the sound of a happy Lion purring.
Fast forward.... what’s this iWeb? After reading the lousy reviews for RapidWeaver (since I can not afford the new version of DreamWeaver) I realized I had something called iWeb.  Could it possibly work?  
Well, it took a while to find a style I could live with, but I have to say I think this version is looking better than the previous site.  The only thing I can’t figure out is how to use my Blogger blog as my blog here (say that 3 times fast!).  There must be a way.....
So at any rate, here is the new site (or the first pages of it) and the new blog (at some point linked with this blog I hope).
Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
