YOUR money: THE BIG PICTURE.Byline: BIZ BUREAU
Dear BIZ I'VE set up a do-it-yourself art website, www.diyart.co.uk where people can create their own painting or drawing from any image they want.
I wanted to let your readers know that with determination and a bit of hard graft hard graft hard n by sheer hard graft → durch harte Arbeit
hard graft n by sheer hard graft → lavorando da matti it is possible to get a product out there.
It's taken me three years of hard slog to get there but I'm now selling online and have my product in shops.
Any further tips you could offer on getting a few more hits would be appreciated.

Now you need to keep pushing and getting your idea known to the masses on and off-line.
There's lots of publications aimed at people who like to make things and you should look into advertising your website and product there.
Shops such as HobbyCraft, WHSmith, The Works and Lakeland stock huge amounts of clever products for diy ideas. These may be ideal outlets to sell your product.
