I have an urn website and have had one for over 10 years. I painted my first urn for my grandfather Elton Marr when I was in college. We could not find an appropriate urn we liked so i found a beautiful wooden box and painted an angel on it. Years later when my son Ezra was a baby I was exhausted ! I laid down to take a rest and the entire business flashed before me like a slide show. i researched what was offered on the Internet for months, interviewed funeral business owners, found distributors for the boxes, a retired wood worker near Austin and my husband graciously built a website with my vision. Ten years later it is still up and running and I am stepping up by site with a shopping cart. This is a huge business and I am not in it to get rich. I enjoy the personal collaboration with families and friends to make something Unique for their loved one. I am afraid with texting and emails people are less willing to pick up their cell phone and talk to another person for any reason . I wonder if collaboration will be a thing of the past ?
