OMG im soooooo excited! just built my own website using Microsoft Office for small businesses. im totally a computer phobe ive never understood the internet and i never thought id be able to do it myself but people kept telling me how easy it was so i had a go and its free!!

Check it out, id be really grateful for any comments and critiques.
I really hope it takes off, i want to go part time at work (im a legal secretary) so im counting on the website and slightly raised prices from what i was charging to people through word of mouth etc so wish me luck!!

She is using the Funky FMM letters to spell the names. Here is a link to Global Sugar Art. If the link doesn't come up, just type in Funky alphabet or Funky FMM.

Hi, yes they are taken in the bath- lol, its the only place to get a high enough background and the lighting is good in my bathroom.

no the website is free and in 2 years apparently they take 10.99 for the doman name for another 2 years. i got a discount for the first 2 years free because it ends in .co.uk. hope there are no hidden costs! il keep you posted icon_smile.gif

I had to go look at the pictures again too. I never would have noticed that the pictures were taken in a bathtub. That's a really cool idea!
