|ust have to giggle about the connections comment. I am a new wahm and have a tight budget. AND my hubby is a Computer programmer and webmaster and is getting ready to host web sites. But you ever hear the saying.... the cobblers children hae no shoes?? LOL I cant get hubby to work on a website for me or nothing!!! Not that i dont try but he is a busy man, and I dont have time to wait around for him LOL|

I refuse to go into debt to get started and i decided before i even started my business, that I would not go into debt so I will save up and buy more things as the money appears. I have been making diapers for about 18 months now, and i JUST got my serger about 3 months ago, and I think my snap press was just 4 months ago.
It is sad how I buy just enough snaps to work on my projects at hand, and keep a few extra for custom orders. and I DREAM of the day I can buy 5000 sets and not even blink. LOL
Starting a business costs alot of money, and when you are producing a product you have a TON of upfront overhead, as opposed to starting a biz with just services. HUbbys Hosting biz has only costs us the cost of the computers, which he got for 25 bucks a peice. I droppeddouble that in fabric at joannes just running in for some lilac flannel. ( I knew I was forgetting something, i never got it LOL)

So what you are saying, is that you can't spell either?

My site meant/means alot to me personally because it is my creation, my artistic vision. Of course easy navigation/information is key (IMO), but I'd probablly ignore any comments in regards to someone's distaste of my site. I'm pretty used to it now, but in the beginning I actually considered tossing my logo because so many women were offended. So, I lost them as customers (at first ), and I kept trucking!
|I LOVE the breastfeeding mermaid on your site!!! At one point, I was even talking to you about having it embroidered on the back of an AIO. Whatever happened with that? I still want one!|

I wouldn't leave a site because of a few misspelled words. I meant a lot of typos. I'm sure I make them on my site, and hope someone would tell me..........nicely. I don't usually proofread my posts on forums, because I'm almost always naking. If I accidentally misspell something, I don't usually care
