New Business Adventure

I am happy to announce that I have finally purchased a domain name ( and that I have published a website jointly with the hubster to sell my arty things and his wood crafts. I've been planning to do this for a couple of years and have actually been working on it for a couple of weeks.

The logo on the left hand side of this site right under the "About Me" link will take you there as will this address:

For the most part the items available are one of a kind. The exception to that is the custom option on the main website for signs made by the hubster.

Here is the logo describing the business:

And here is the one that appears on the catalog pages and receipts:

They are not identical because I was afraid if I used the descriptive one, it would appear as if it should be clickable with links to each of the categories and on the catalog page that is not possible.

I'd love it if you would take a look and provide me with feedback regarding your experience.

I am planning to add other items as I make them. These will possibly include ACEOs, collages, blank handmade journals and Photoshop backgrounds (digital files that would be emailed to the customer).

I will periodically update progress and insights to my experience so that any of you who are considering opening an online business can benefit from it.

For now I am off to the treadmill and then am planning to begin a new master drawing. I'll keep you posted.



  1. Good luck with your new venture and I wish you much success!! So far, it is looking great! I am looking forward to seeing more of your art as you add it!

  2. Congratulations, dear one, you've done a splendid job with this. Good luck and best wishes on your new venture! hugs, nancy

  3. I wish you all the best Vicki with this new venture.....I love the cribbage boards....well made.

  4. I absolutely love the logo - well both of them and the name "Faint Heart Art" has always struck a chord with me.

    Wishing you and the hubster the best of luck in this exciting new venture!!

  5. You got your name faintheartart! Wow. I thought anything and everything was taken already. I thought your site worked well. Good job! I think some blank books are a good idea to add.

  6. Congratulations! Good luck to such great venture. :)

  7. Lovely page! I really like the background colors, with all the musical notes, it's almost like it's playing some musics to people who are looking at it. I hope it draws a lot of crowd as it has with me ^^

  8. How exciting - another phase of your art life. I wish you and hubster all the very best.

  9. Congrats. Wish you the best. Keep us up to date with what's going on.

  10. Congratulations on the new website, Vicki! It looks beautiful. I did find a glitch I think:

    - the picture is not loading

    Good luck!

  11. You go girl!!
    I am having trouble (with more than your site) downloading pictures. The one under your picture did not come out. I did however, see the two big layout pages. Nice.

  12. It looks great! Congratulations!! I wish you much success!
