Hi Hofkissed, Are you saying your photos show one orientation when your listings are "On hold" and switch to a different orientation after you change product status to "Live"? That would be strange. The only time I've...  Read more...

I agree, handwriting is part of who you are. Handwritten notes are sometime all that is left of the loved ones. I keep a lot of handwritten letters from my mom, and they remind me of those moments that we've experienced together, they remind me of...

Good points, FairyCardmaker! I've known about handwritten notes and memory connection since school. Always take notes, even if I don't plan to use them later.

Sun Jul 5, 2015 11:29 PM    Blog: The power of handwriting

As a greeting card maker, I encourage people to hand-write the messages inside of cards. Not many people like the look of their own handwriting but, like it or not, it's part of who you are. Handwriting is as unique to you as your voice or your fingerprint. It's instantly recognizable.

Today, I'm going to... Read more

Thieves steal six woolly hats in first island robbery in 50 years
The island in the far west of the Small Isles has fewer than 30 residents, no police station or village hall and usually enjoys a crime rate of zero. The Community Shop was previously left unlocked. Most upsetting for [manager] Julie was that they stole six of her hand-knitted Canna wool hats which were in the shop on a sale or return basis.

Books as you've never seen them before
To create new art, Brian Dettmer trashes old books. The painter-turned-sculptor takes outdated reference materials such as textbooks and encyclopedias, seals them with varnish, then carves away at their pages with an X-Acto knife. Dettmer knifes through books swiftly from cover to cover to reveal images that explore our relationship to information. He adds no color or text; it's all what he calls "a subtractive sculptural process."

Bullied Teen Designs Her Own Prom Dress And Becomes Prom Queen
18-year-old Kyemah McEntyre designed a prom dress that is anything but typical. The New Jersey resident, inspired by her African heritage, had a local seamstress from Markell's Closet hand-sew the dress from McEntyre's sketch. McEntyre was chosen to be prom queen, and this fall she will be attending the Parsons School of Design.

Teen buys crop top on Amazon, mom reviews it with help from cat
When her 16-year-old daughter bought a crocheted crop top on Amazon, Christy, who goes by the username sb043 on the site, posted a scathing review for the summery garment."I probably couldn't legally post a picture of what it looks like if she attempts to wear it...To be fair, it does cover all of the cats nipples, however, she hates the weave," Christy writes in her review. At least she is fair.

The enchanted art of Leszek Kostuj
Artist Leszek Kostuj was born in Poland and studied art in Poznan. He is obviously not afraid to use color. His art is a mix of outsider art and surrealism, and in the process of telling these surreal stories he uses everything from acrylic and oil (his favorites) to drawing and computer graphics.
