I lived most of my life in a small southern Louisiana town. Coming from a small town and going to a small populated school, there really wasn't much elective courses to choose from. So, I stayed with computer and art classes. That's when I fall in love with the history of art and enjoyed working on the computer.
When I met my husband, we both had a year and a half together before he left for USMC boot camp in 2008. Since I already had a brother in the Marines and a few cousins in the military, I knew what to expect. With knowing that, it still wasn't easy. I did work during the day but at night I was lost. So, I started blogging on Google's blogging platform, Blogger, but I wanted more. I wanted to add my own twist to my blog template. I searched on how I could customize a blogger blog template and found lots of resources on how I could edit the HTML coding. I also found great tips and tutorials on how to create graphics in Paint Shop Pro. From there, I learned everything I could about graphic design, web design, and my program.
While I started my first business selling blogger templates and graphics, I needed something that was more of a site rather than a blog. I found Weebly and loved how easy it was for me to create a site with the drag-n-drop features they offer. But then, I need something that offered more and was better for my Inspired Hearts Boutique and found Shopify. Once again, I wanted to add my own twist and change up the Weebly and Shopify themes. I learned all I could about Weebly's and Shopify's HTML and CSS coding. By doing that, I was able to create my second business by offering services for web design.
