Hi, soorawn!  I apologize if it is at all perceived as misleading advertising.  Google is supposed to serve relevant, craft-related ads in that position.  However, sometimes random ads slip through, and we do our best to monitor and block them when we see them!

We recently redesigned the Google text ads in order to make that space a bit more visually appealing since it was just text with a plain margin in the past.  As you've noticed, we have a pool of four or five crafty images that rotate through with those text ads now.  It simply was just our way of adding some color and appeal to an otherwise bland chunk of space on the site.

We do love color... and glitter. Grin

Aaaaah!  I was wondering about the images!  So they're your addition for making those ads more handsome... (truly, they remind me of the classified ads from the paper).  Good idea!  Thanks for clarifying!  And of course, no need to apologise for the unrelated ads.  They're difficult to keep at bay.

Well, it's our attempt at least!  There's not much we can do to spice up text ads, but we tried. Cheesy

Thanks for the feedback on them!  We really appreciate it.
