So I have some 'splainin' to do...

I'm done pouting about my blog and I'm back. I got *really* frustrated because I couldn't leave replies to my own comments. And then, if that wasn't enough, I couldn't even leave comments on other people's blogger blogs. So I thought I'd install the widget I was so proud of in my previous post, thinking I could reply as a typepad alter-ego, and then the widget my blog started to gang up on me and I couldn't take it anymore. So, here I am back for more abuse! I haven't tried to comment yet. But I feel hopeful that my widget and my blog will be confused enough by the fact that I'm using a different computer now and all the time that's passed. Finger's crossed!

Anyhow, I wanted to start anew and introduce you, my huge blog following, to my new etsy shop (woot!) and share some of the awsome things I'm drolling over for my boys.


OK, I may be back to pouting again. And I'm feeling like I may have to run screaming from this blog again. I just spent about three hours, minus picking dh up at work and getting my older son in bed, trying to get an etsy mini into this post. It just seemed like the perfect way to show off my shop and to show off the other stuff I've found at etsy. And it didn't seem like it should be that freaking hard to put one in a post. Turns out it's damn near impossible to figure it out if you don't know a lot about html and god knows what else. I have found several threads on etsy where people are beating their heads against walls trying to get an etsy mini into a blogger post and then some angel from above, apparently, sends them a convo, privately, outside of the thread where the "how to's" are being discussed and then the problem is magically solved with no explanation and everyone is happy and congratulates and thanks each other. I'm half waiting for an angel to arrive on my thread, but I may just disappear for a few more weeks and ignore this issue.
