MaidenShade Makeover

August 10, 2009

I promised you a couple of things in my last post, and here’s what I’ll deliver on today. 

#1 The new blog is up – still a work in progress, but she’s official!  I have to find help to get my cart to function correctly as it won’t take people to PayPal for checking out, and it won’t do shipping.  (If you know how to work in this WordPress plug-in, PLEASE help!)  But aside from that and tweaking her appearance a bit, the basic format is completed.  I will be adding contacts to my blogroll and products over time, you can see the categories I’ll have things in.   

  • Your opinion counts so let me know what you think please.  Like it?  If not, why?
  • How does it appear on your screen? 

#2 My faerie boxes (which have been done but I just took pictures today… had to work on the blog) are ready for their debut!  So is the darling Mermaid Tin.

This week I plan to do a feature on how “You Can’t Do It All Alone”, or some such.  I am going to be spotlighting some of the wonderful women who have influenced, aided, and provided products and/or services, in an above and beyond fashion.

As previously mentioned, I’m having company next week so will be sporadic in my posts and visits.  We are going to a place on the water in Sanibel so we’ll bring our boat (the Miss Steph).

Until tomorrow, xJ

    It’s looking good Jennifer. I am having a problem with your right sidebar. Your Facebook and Twitter badges seems to be making things run together, but then again maybe it is just my computer. I love the colors. Have a great family time together on the water! Yes, please let me know when you find a cure for what ails us..we will sell stock, okay?

    These boxes are lovely – and the new site is terrific! Congrats on your new home…I’ll put this link on my blog list!

    Hello Jennifer, I am fascinated by your work. It is so beautiful. I also loved reading more about you. (scrolling down) You are not only artistic your have a talent for writing. I think your new space is wonderful. I love it all. Good job.

    I grew up going to Sanibel Island when there wasn’t anything there but water and beautiful shells,just for the picking. Hard to believe now, isn’t it? As teens we went there from Miami where I grew up. We took a picnic because there was no place to get food. It is still beautiful, but to me kind of ruined from the vast amount of construction there. Such is life all over Florida. We now love living in the NC mountains.

    Hi Jennifer, you left the sweetest post on my blog and I wanted to thankkyou so much for that. I do love the new look of your blog, very nice indeed. You asked about the paypal shopping cart and I don’t know if you are talking about my website at or my other blog where I do Friday Flea Market. That’s at If you are talking about the website, that is managed thru merchant moms, the site people. If you are talking about the blog, just go into your paypal under merchant services and follow the steps for a buy it now button. It’s so easy, but if you need help, let me know and I will try and help you with it, Char

    Cool new blog. Everything looks a little to big to me but as you said it is a work in progress though. I think you fairy box came out great. I look forward to seeing more of your studio. I have been working on mine all day trying to reorganize it. I think I am finally making some progress. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog again too. Your comments always make my day so much brighter. Hope all is well with you.

    The new site looks terrific. I always love me some pink. Your fairy boxes are magical. I love that they come with fairy dust. It’s so much prettier than regular dust, LOL! Congrats on your move, I hope you get the kinks worked out easily and that this new site works better for you as well. Have a great week and it was nice hearing from you again!
