Catena Creations celebrating 11 years

It’s always fun to stop on this day, Aug. 22, and reflect on what’s happened since I decided on Aug. 22, 2008, to start my own business and work from my home. Celebrating my 11-year anniversary seemed SO far away that day. But here I am, awkwardly typing while keeping two broken fingers safe, ready to mark another year finished and start a new year full of promises.

The biggest accomplishment for Catena Creations was relocating from Olde Towne Bellevue to the Omaha Regency neighborhood.

Alicia had set up her original website on WordPress.com with a very simple template. The organization has formed partnerships with other like-minded nonprofits around the world, and was getting ready to start a fund-raising campaign for a new project. They needed to elevate the quality of their website so it would better highlight their mission and reflect their growth.
