…I’m amazed at what you’ve taught me regarding Canva and the website so far. It’s all very interesting and I’m getting faster at it.
Thanks, Anne. I got everything fixed and exactly the way I want it. I even updated the book and dvd carousels on my own today. I am really, really pleased and after today feel confident that I know how to do the basics of tinkering with this website. Thank you for encouraging me to do these little fixes myself :).
