Please be patient as I continue to switch the files over.

Thanks and Happy Looking!

I’ve missed showcasing my favorite Indie Finds and look forward to bringing you more of the things you love!

Ciao for now!

Ayana E.

I want to apologize for the lack of updates here and on YSA!. I have been so busy lately and have been working on getting my schedule in order. With me trying to focus on my ministry, school starting, and doing graphic work…among so many other things, I have been slacking on bringing you the indie finds you all love!

I have put together a schedule I believe will allow me to be better organized…Long overdue. (Yes, I know.) With that said…I am going to be updating the blog this weekend. I have found some great indie designers and they have some goodies you’re going to want to check out!

Please check back then.

Peace & Blessings,

Ayana E.

Ok…Call me a big selfish baby…

I was without High-Speed internet access for about a week and REFUSED to do any updates using dial-up. SIMPLY REFUSED!!!

I could access the internet, but I was not about to punish myself by trying to look for great Indie stuff using an awfully sad internet connection. So, anyway, Comcast has taken care of me and now I can take care of you…by giving you what you want – Indie Goodness!!

Thank God for High-Speed internet! 🙂

So, last night I was checking my sites and I kept getting an error message. Since I was told to upgrade to a Virtual Private Server from the Shared Hosting plan I was on, I really haven’t had all that much trouble with my hosting company.

I am very upset because the server has been out for hours and no one seems to have any answers. I have been using the same hosting company for years and I am sure other people have issues from time to time with their hosts, but this kind of stuff just makes me mad…especially since I have several sites on this one account. The server picked a fine time to want to go down….Just great!

Anyway, my images and site should be back up soon…Hopefully.

I hope your day is better than mine. 🙂

A letter from my hosting company:

Dear Valued Customer,

We are regret to inform you that the server is experiencing some outage and
the cause might be due to some hardware failure.

System admin is now working on it and hopefully there isn’t a major problem.

We’ll try to bring the system back online asap.

Once again, apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Best regards
Flexi Agent
