Weekend Work

So I spent the weekend working on some of these roses.  And I finally added them to our Etsy shop too.  What do you think?



My daughter will is selling these for Valentine's Day, attempting to earn money for her summer academic extra-curricular activities.

Giveaway winners will be announced shortly.  FOUR giveaways will be having winners in just hours!!!  The last one (Etsyversary Final Giveaway ends tonight). And a few entries need to be verified before the announcement is made.  Thanks for your patience.  =0)  I hope you all enjoyed celebrating our Etsyversary this year!

Quick blogging question for all my lovely readers...
Some of you may have noticed that I recently changed the comment form.  It used to be embedded into the post, so if you wanted to leave a comment, you just click and then scroll down to the comments to post.  Now I have it set as a pop-up window.  I'd like to hear  your thoughts on this with feedback.  Do you like it better?  Or, do you prefer how it was before?

What did you do over the weekend?  Anything fun?

Love the roses!
Over the weekend went shopping for fabric with my mother in law. Then we made bread and a few other goodies!

Yes, I agree, I like the new pop up comment window.

Very pretty roses. Good luck to your daughter. I really don't have a preference for the comments.

Great roses...and they are a "billion dollars" a dozen! :D

They're super cute! I like them a lot :-). I'm kind of used to blogs either having the pop-up window or having it embedded at the bottom of the post. Either way if fine with me, but I like I like this pop up window (and might use it now) because it allows us to scroll back to the post and answer all the questions :-) Me likey, hehe.

Those roses look great! I hope your daughter can raise the money she needs!

I don't think I have a preference for comments. The only draw to pop up is I don't think you can't do individual replies to comments.

I like the pop up window as well as the other option.

I ran a lot of errands with the hubs. Haha really need a weekend to just relax.

BTW, I'm hosting a giveaway for HQCD. You could win a pair of pear drop earrings and your choice of handmade lip balm. Check it out!

The roses are beautiful! Such a good idea. I like the embedded comments for my blog because I reply to individual comments a lot, but I think either style is fine!

Cute roses, Kim!

I prefer embedded comments for the same reason Melissa does - it is great to be able to use the threaded comments option.
