Talking Hi, I'm Eric! Woo hoo!

Hi, everybody... my name's Eric Yonge. Glad to be here! Robert's been after me about coming over here, and I can't believe it's taken me this long. I've looked around and I'm diving in! My company is eystudios.com.

I started off as an illustrator and then got into designing logos and websites for small businesses. I went into business for myself about a year and a half ago. God has really blessed me in all kinds of ways. I'm very thankful.

We work in all kinds of styles, but we specialize in developing fun and offbeat designs. We drew the doggie you see at the top of the page.

I got married on January 1st, and that has rocked my world (for the better)!

I have learned a lot about running my own business, but there is a LOT I would like to learn. I look forward to contributing to this forum.

Hi Eric ~

Welcome to the forum! For awhile we were trying to name the dog...I don't think we every finalized on it though. Maybe you should chime in!

Congrats on your marriage!

Well it's about time! Puppy looks pretty good sitting up there, don't ya' think?

Things tend to slow down a bit on the weekend, but there's loads for you to dig through. I'm glad you did finally stop by.

Hey, thanks for the welcome. Yeah, I like the doggie up there... my bride thinks he should be called Ringo. She's got a Rott (mixed with... something) of her own named Samson. He looks more like a horse than a dog.

Sorry to be so late welcoming you to the forum Eric. We love the puppy. He looks just like Robert. As for the name......everybody has their opinion. Congrats on your marriage, great way to start off the new year. Any particular reason you guys chose the first of the year to get married?

I had to pick a date that I wouldn't easily forget for an anniversary.

OK, I have to share something cool that just happened:

On my wedding day, someone snuck into my dressing room and stole my laptop. It had all my business stuff on it: tax info, banking info, graphic files, etc. I was really freaked out. I had to talk to the police 30 minutes before I got married. I just ended up praying about it and slowly got over it.

Well, this college guy just called from Florida and said, "Did you lose a laptop?" I said, "YES!" Turned out, these three kids came by his neighborhood and sold it to him for $300. He said he saw the art on it and said there's no way those kids did that. He looked me up on the web, and that was that. I was like, "Man, put that on the next UPS truck and I'll send you the cash."

That's an answer to prayer... isn't that awesome?

Awesome Eric.........Was the laptop in good shape? How long from after the time it was stolen did you get the call from the guy from Florida? The power of prayer is amazing!
