Rather creative weekend

Firstly,a huge welcome to my new followers and a big thanks to the rad FTLOB community for everything.Thank you muchly.

Moving on,my first success this weekend was coming up with a custom twitter background for myself.After a few trials I managed to get the dimensions right so that the elements I wanted to show off was perfectly positioned and not hiding behind twitter's main column.Every since I launched my shop and business[pause]-it's still quite unbelievable to me-I have been looking for various ways of gaining exposure without being obnoxious or too in-your-face.And then it struck me[and 100s before me] that our online presence-consciously or unconsciously builds up a brand and twitter is a valuable tool if utilised properly[not auto-botly-which by the way is disgusting] could bring in some serious groovy traffic.And ofcourse there's something to be said about wearing something custom made-just puts that extra sprint in your e-step.So,if you have a business-just starting out-small or big,old or new-remember to build up your brand from the beginning.

I just might add this service to my a la carte items.I so excite!

I also added a sunny new premade to my shop at Storenvy.Awesome thing about Storenvy?You pay no listing price!You heard it-none at all!I'm quite new there and  am yet to explore the community,support and transactions and might over time shift to Etsy-but this was a quite a gem of a discovery at the moment,don't you think?Quite useful for small indie businesses like myself.
Without further ado,here's the template I finished

Indie at heart

 I have been meaning to include some flighty,feathery business into my templates for a while and came up with this.You like?
It also comes with a Welcome note,functional css text menu,calender date icon and 5 essential social network buttons.It's priced at $25 and can be bought at a 5% discount with the code howfabulous.

For now,I feel strangely contented-like I just received a giant belly rub-g'nnuuh.Other awesome finds this weekend includes this fabulous song-turn-it-up,yo!
