Wazzup CHM Biz Blog   Click on the "silver" button to get to this general Blog which will be summarizing the store and website news just below (see "What's New" on this Page), as well as what's up on the Wazzup Page.  The blog is likely to be updated more quickly and frequently than this website.  Check it out.  Yes, the blog feed embedded is out of date - this will be fixed in the coming week.  Probably something due to Google's upgrading its Blogger or Feedburner making changes I wasn't aware of screwed things up.  I just noticed!  (My bad.)  Do visit the blog regardless, although it is under construction right now (that Google Blogger upgrade business...).

What's New[as of 8/4/2008] <------  the development of a new version of this site (okay, yes, it's taking forever...) - be sure to check my blogs, please.  (See the button above for access to the CHM Biz News Blog, also http://wazzup-chm.blogspot.com)

bulletNEW on this Website...
bulletSPECIAL NOTE! That I have Adobe/Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 now (Fie on Microsoft FrontPage!) and have started work on a new website for this same URL.  At the same time, this website will continue to be up and running at this same URL.  I continue to add the "Bad Music Joke of the Week"  - see link on the Wazzup Page, or go directly to the Music Humor Page.   You may also occasionally see other items of interest added here during the construction of the new site. 
bulletThe Blog buttons will continue to be current, as well as most of the links.  <-----------
bulletThe blog button - the "silver" one above, plus others you see around this website are still valid and active.
bulletI unlinked the Groovy Ladies Page - at least for now - and have been removing links throughout this website - and elsewhere - to its related now-defunct store "For Women Old Enough to Know Better"
bulletCafePress Store News
bulletAs always, keep an eye on Sales & Features.  Look for Popular Products sales and features.  And, stuff for Holidays.  And the "NEW NEW NEW" section (new graphics and new merchandise).
bulletThe Premium Store "For Women Old Enough to Know Better" has been closed.  The Groovy Ladies have retired.  The Groovy Lady Blog still exists - its future is undecided for now.  The store was doing fine - paying its way, successful, and all - but I think it's easier for my customers and for me if all my merchandise is under one store roof (so to speak).  I know it's better for me.  The graphics and merch you know and love will still be found in Music Stuff & More at both CafePress and Zazzle.
bulletIntroducing Music Stuff & More store @ Zazzle!  Some of the music (& more) graphics you've known and loved from CafePress, but available on many other merchandise, such as key chains - and, very cool, Ked shoes.  (I'm already getting raves for my Beethoven shoes.)  This Zazzle store is also an app on my Facebook Profile, BTW.  This is a brand-new store, so there's not yet much in it, look for more RSN.
bullet  Line Artwork News (frankly, basically no news right now)
bulletLook for more new line artwork from me on this website on the Line Artwork Page after I get caught up with my store development - and clients.  Added 3/24/07: Which won't be happening anytime soon, frankly, since I'm not even close to being all caught up with either store development or client work!  I will make it known - here, on the general blog above, in Yahoo Groups, etc. - when there is new line artwork available.  For more information about this see  "Other Graphic Design Products & Services."

*As to the graphic design work above, I am on hiatus this year in regard to both graphic design and graphic art generally, as well as custom machine embroidery artwork, although I may do some work for previous clients.  In 2007 [and 2008] my business focus will be on the retail side of my business.
