Dog Art Studio is Open, Open, Open!



I am so excited to announce that Dog Art Studio is now open!

I have been working hard learning CSS and Expression Web over the last few months to build a new website featuring all the other breeds I also paint that I call Pug Pals.
They are all the pug friends that Pug Notes has also has available, but that I have not been able to optimize as their own website.
I hope to be able to reach all dog lovers with both websites.
What a fun process learning a new way to create and update both sites. I will now convert Pug Notes over to Expression Web and then when I want to make changes it will take 2 minutes instead of hours. All I need to do to update is to change one page that will filter globally throughout the site instead of opening 100 pages and making each change individually! I am so excited!
If you have time, please visit Dog Art Studio and let me know what you think. Your opinion means so much to me. Please be honest. I will not be able to improve it if I do not get ALL of the feedback. :)

Hi Melissa! Mom said she will tell you what she thinks soon, but she is getting over feeling blah (you know why)so she's not quite up to it yet. She is sure it is great, though.

Great job on the site Melissa! I hope you get a lot of traffic with your domain name. Are you still keeping pugnotes?

Hey Melissa, I just checked out your new website and it looks great. I think this is very smart, especially for one very specific reason....

I know you have always done Pug Pals but to give them their own site, I think, will be very welcoming to people that own breeds other then Pugs...I think it will broaden your selling horizons so to speak. Good job at being a great business person in addition to being an awesome artist.

wow Melissa, this looks great. I think it functions well and is really user friendly. I didn't realize that you had sooo many products available. The pug journal is really sweet and I also enjoyed how you showed a picture of the pug placements on display.
Great job creating this site, you should be proud. =)
