Hi! Thanks for a very informative and thought provoking symposium. I am now aware that I am a lot greener than I originally thought and that I need to do something about the vent in my studio!! I hear the workshop was a wonderful source of information, sorry that I missed it. Christine

Hi
Thanks so much for joining. Its only early, and its great to have some brave souls kick it all off.
There is lots of stuff you can do on kit and caboodle (yep, all my kids have terrible names too) - put images, news and events up, ask/answer stuff in the forums, join a group, chat will be happening sometime soon, and yes, you can even pimp your page.
Just remember kit and caboodle is a public network, its aim is promotional, so be sure to only put up personal details that you are comfortable with. There are privacy and email options in the settings.
Anytime you have a problem, or cant work something out, let me know.
Cheers
Cathy
