And while I'm complaining...when the heck are they going to change the featured items on craftster?  Those projects are cool and all, but I'm really ready for something different.  Ok...done whining.

Well, that's very, very easy to answer.  In your question, you said "they" when in reality only one person can do that & that's Leah Wink

I have read quite a few comments/threads about this recently and it gets my yarn in a knots and my glitter all over the place Cheesy  I wish I  could update the News section.  If I could, I would fill it with happy, shiny props to Leah for everything she does.  Of course, I can't edit the news section, because Leah does that, too!  LOL.
But, in all seriousness, I don't think lost of people realize how much Craftster Leah does on her own, while we are wandering about posting, participating in swaps, etc.  I love the Featured Projects section, but she also does all of the coding, maintenance & budgetting of Craftster and it's almost 60,000 members (60 thousand! Shocked), implementation of new features & boards, databases for us to track feedback, posting & trends, craft challenges, everything encompassed in the Blog, Picture Hosting...

Somehow she manages to escape us/here to spend lots of time relaxing in her real life though, lol...like planning her wedding in May Grin, THE book (it arrives at the warehouse today - woohoo!), organizing & participating in the SF Bazaar Bizarre that was April 22, owning & running Magpie in Boston...

You get the idea Smiley  So, hang in there, share some love for Craftster, and maybe even send some to Leah every now and then Smiley

Ok, I really just wanted an excuse to use that .gif.  Grin

That's better! Thanks! Those look more like Poppies or Apple blossoms or something than Orchids to me, but I'm not sure...

They are anemones Smiley  Colorful little wildflowers...

Hrm, Jane... I've tried searching a few different combinations of words and options & I can't seem to find the thread you are describing.

But, now it feels like I'm on a mission and the search function is trying to defeat me, so I'll keep searching, lol Smiley

BUY THREE ITEMS FOR THE PRICE OF TWO.  Simply purchase three items but only pay for two.  After ordering wait for an updated invoice from me. 

Well you're a person of very few words Tongue

"space" is misspelled in your signature  Wink

Yeah, seems kind of either shadey, or not very well put together.  Because I have Anne Frank syndrome, I would like to think the latter.  Wink

If she is willing to pay up front, that would secure the payment for you.  But, if you would want her to credit the crafts to you, then you are going to need to specify that in some sort of terms to her.  And make sure those terms are secured and agreed upon by both parties.  Smiley

Before getting kanji charaters though, I think you might want to go to this site: http://hanzismatter.blogspot.com. There's a few examples of kanji/chinese characters gone wrong. Also, whild the character you have is unambiguous, you should realize that something in kanji can be read very differently in Chinese, because they use the same characters, but those characters do not necessarily mean the same things in both languages. For example, the characters for "to study" in kanji actually mean "to force someone against their will" in Chinese. So ask a Japanese and a Chinese person about your tattoo to make sure it's what you really want.

I had mentioned www.hanzismatter.com on the last page... is the blog the same guy & information?

maitai, could you direct me to a page or post an image of the kanji you want instead?

this is what i'm looking for

and yes, at least it doesn't say "crazy diarrhea"

Thanks!  I'm going to play with your tattoo... Cheesy

You're so great Smiley

Regarding the size/width...
I looked at it on two different monitors.  With my tablet (it's a 14.1 screen) I had to scroll a bit to the right, but I wasn't missing any pertinent information if I didn't scroll.  If ya wanted to, I think you could make it a bit smaller without compromising the look & feel of your page.  You could snip a bit of the excess banner & right-side tips of the dividers off.  But, if ya didn't adjust it I don't think it's something that would detour people from purchasing your products.

as for the purses & bags page, i have yet to revamp that page.  eventually i plan to have it look more like the other pages, with product descriptions and such.  and i need to make more bags to put on it!  and yes, if an item is sold, i can make another upon request.  on my other sold items i put a note that says "sold, email me for a custom order".  i wonder if it's better to continue like that, or if i should just make a gallery of sold items?  and if so, should it be one gallery, or a seperate gallery for each category?  hmmm, hmmm,  and hmmm....

Oh!  It figures I would look at the purse page w/o the note about sold/custom orders, lol.  I just looked at the other pages with the sold/custom order notes & I like how you did it Smiley  If you keep them in their respective galleries and include the "sold/customer order" link under them, it would be good for me (customers) and you (seller) Smiley  I'd probably be less likely to look through a Sold Gallery, because I wouldn't want to see stuff I can't have.  Ha!

By the way... that quilt IS quite an accomplishment!  It's gorgeous & I'm not sure I could have willingly parted with it, lol Cheesy

Misslilamae, you are the best!  Thank you so much for sharing so much information.  Wow, all of this is so helpful!

I am an avid fan of good deals on Ebay, so that's great to know info.  And I think I will mostly be a bubble mailer girl as well, so I am glad you happened to use that as an example Cheesy

I'm copying and pasting all of this over to my Etsy shop notes!  (see, that's where I am crazy, lol)
