Found My Groove

I feel that things are finally starting to come together, I'm finding my groove, it's just the matter of working out what to do first, with most things!

A few weeks ago I decided a domain would be the first thing to do (www.cocoa-pod.com) because that is something that I could miss out on. For the first 24 hours of it being mine I was forever typing in my address watching it convert to my online store. I forgot that it will be included in its stats. Oops! Edit for those looking for the best place to get a domain, although I bought mine 'local', I was thinking about getting it from Crazy Domains (Australian, yay!). There's also Go Daddy, but there seems to be mixed feelings on them.

Now I am working on my studio. Or rather, it is being 'ikearised'! You can't work if you can't walk, you know. :p Will take photos once I am done, which won't be offically done until probably March, as my rolling doors won't be coming in until then. I will be buying these Swedish sweets with the doors, as I seem to have the logic that you need them to put together ikea wardrobes. Organization, here I come! (But will I stay for long? ;)

For organization inspiration you might want to have a lookie-loo at Pretty Organized, which is a flickr group.

hello renee - thanks for your advice on the post! heheh.. congratulations on your new blog - it looks great!

hmm.. i have been wondering about a domain too.

You did good - I heard tell GoDaddy's not so great - they have fine print that will be hard if you want to switch to someone else - so you don't really won the domain.
