First off ... This is me .... Corline ... Owner/Designer of www.overthetopaprons.com. It is time again for a disclaimer. Most people just assume that I am the darling model of the aprons on my website.
Here is the cute model ... Syd .... University Student, premed student ... marvelous model for www.overthetopaprons.com Our staff calls her 'Our Top Model'. (Next post I will share with you our 'Top Mini Model').
I started my website about one year ago and people have been very, very supportive which I sincerely appreciate. When I decided to do a website I was actually discouraged about the idea from several people. Their recommendation was to go on some selling site like Etsy or Art Fire .... both wonderful sites but for me (because of my age ... and young in spirit! ) I decided it was now or never. I opted for the now. I am so glad that I did and I would encourage anyone debating about starting their own website to go ahead. The cost is minimal depending on the hosting site you choose and if you can maintain the site by yourself.
I am very pleased with Pappa Shoppe for my hosting site; they are very personal, always available and very quick to assist you and walk you through any problems you may have. They are always adding new free templates with a range of styles. I am definitely still in the learning stage but if anyone has any questions about Pappa Shoppe or just starting a website I would be glad to share what I know.
I will be giving more updates of what I am doing, resources I use ... answering some questions that my customers and viewers have ask. If I can be of help to any of you, please do not hesitate to drop a comment and where I can get in touch with you. Have fun with whatever you decide to do ... go with your passion!
