Quite some time ago I decided to open a Facebook account. Soon after, I was swamped with people wanting to be my friend! I hadn't even told anyone I was on FB, didn't really know how it worked as of yet, and didn't know 95% of these potential friends! I thought my account was hidden anyway. So, I closed it. Fast forward several months to... oh.... maybe 2 months ago. After reading about how facebook helps with artists' sales, I thought I'd give it a try, after all, who couldn't use a little help in this economy? I re-open my account, and left it there. It was so confusing to me... nothing like blogger... maybe a bit more like twitter as everyone seems to post short posts. Now we are in the present, and I hear more and more people talking about how wonderful FB is... ok... let me try it once more then. This morning I finally, after repeated attempts and having to reset my password, I finally log into my account. Wow! All these people want to be my friend? I'm both flattered and honored! I had been getting a few email messages about so-and-so wanting to friend me, but I just deleted them from my email knowing I probably wouldn't be going to FB any time soon. So now here is this loooong list of people wanting to be-friend me. Why not take the plunge? I would only friend those who I know or who I have heard of through blogs and craft groups... people I think will be nice people and not have "bad" stuff on their walls (see? at least I know you have a wall there, lol!). I begin sending messages like crazy... and those word verification things are driving me nuts with each new message, but I continue like a mad-facebooker.... until......... and this is so funny............ I realize that all these people were just suggestions ~ not actual people who have asked to be my friend! Talk about embarrassing!!! So, if you got a request from me to be your friend, I thought you had already asked me and I was just replying! I will do my best to learn how to participate in FaceBook and not be a total dork. Honestly. Soon. I think I will try to have an account just for my business too, if it's not too complicated.
In the meantime, I have listed another 1897 Medical Book Wreath on etsy. A closeup of the centerpiece is at the top of this post. It's the last one from that book, since I have run out of pages. I do have a few interesting illustrations left that I hope to use on something else that I make.
Thanks for checking in, and if you have any FB tips, feel free to comment!
I would post how to get to my FB page here, but I don't know how, lol!
