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
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 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! ), 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 , 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 So, hang in there, share some love for Craftster, and maybe even send some to Leah every now and then
Ok, I really just wanted an excuse to use that .gif.
