Greyt Inspirations Life

A little about our life, our business and our pets.

A Day in the Life Of…

Can’t say that my life is boring, but sometimes I really wish for Boring. Between our kids, work, our businesses (Greyt Inspirations, The GlassHound) our 5 dogs, our bird and life in general…we rarely have any spare time.  Needless to say, we are kept on our toes.

These two weeks are busy, some of it is expected, others not. For instance, yesterday we spent a good deal of the day at the veterinarian with Onyx. He is our 11 year old greyhound. He started limping on Friday and it got progressively worse over the weekend. After bloodwork examination and xrays, it was determined that he either sprained or strained his leg. He is on Metacam and total rest for the next week or so. Tomorrow we all have a dental appointment. Next week is our youngest sons 16th birthday AND our oldest sons graduation from Basic Training.

At the same time, I am working on improving my web design skills and am entering contests. I haven’t won any yet but I am learning lots and having fun. I tend to learn better by "doing" something constructive rather than reading or doing something without a real purpose. The goal is to improve enough so that I can start winning or at least get "in the running" to win a contest.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Greyt Sites

I have recently started another new business venture called Greyt Sites.

I have been with the same webstore/ecommerce host for almost 5 years. At the time that I started, I knew very little about running a business and not much more about having my own website so I was “learning as I go”. Luckily, I had made a good choice with my ecommerce host as they have proven to be excellent in comparison to many others. Very easy to learn and use, good help topics, excellent support, reasonably priced, almost non-existent down-time (I think they have had 2 outages in the 5 years I have been with them and they had the problem fixed very quickly) and they keep up-to-date in technology. Needless to say, I am very happy with them and have no plans to change.

For this reason, I decided to start selling some of their hosting space myself. I purchased this option and had a website created. It is now up and running.

If you are interested in having a website similar to Greyt Inspirations or The GlassHound, with the ease of creating the website, the ease of making it “your own” (personalizing it) and great support, please visit Greyt Sites for all the details.
You won’t be disappointed! I haven’t been….

The GlassHound

Our new website, The GlassHound, is live!

We have all the necessities completed for our new webstore and it is ready for viewing. We will be “tweaking” it and adding to it over the next few weeks until we are completely satisfied with the look and content so keep an eye out for ongoing  “new and improved”.

The logo will be changed soon. One of our friends, who is a graphic artist, is creating a new and unique logo for us and it will be added as soon as it is ready – which should be sometime in the next few days.

I really like the way it has turned out. Take a peak at The GlassHound.
