Secret Stitching

I am blogging early tonight because I am going to be doing some secret stitching tonight - finish a birthday gift and hopefully also work on my What's The Buzz Exchange. I can share this, though. I just realized tonight that Leslie received her little birthday gift from me already. Since I have not been able to get to blogs often, I totally missed that she received it, apparently, on her actual birthday on Monday!! Yay!

Happy Birthday Fob

Mike has a question for some of you... we know that several of you own online needlework shops and shops of other sorts. Mike is setting up a shop, and he wants to know if anyone can help him with getting a "shopping cart" - he is looking for one that is easy to use. Any recommendations would be so appreciated!! Thanks so much!

And, if you are in mood for a giggle and a smile, I have something for you:

This sweet (but not shy) little girl is a cancer patient. Last Friday, the Red Sox hosted a telethon for the Jimmy Fund (for cancer research). They played a double header (two games) on Friday, and in between games they had this little girl visiting with some of on the on-air talent. Check her out! She will give you her very best Boston accent at the end of this short video - LOL!! Best wishes Lexy! You are too, too cute!

Stitched on today: Stitched a gift, and What's The Buzz Exchange project

Carol - you can get a shopping cart pretty easily through Paypal. I would check into it at least to see what is offered - at least to get you up and running as I think it's fairly economical.

What a great gift! She will definitely enjoy it!

I don't have a business but do shop online. Personally I don't use Paypal and prefer a cart that allows me several secure choices in payment methods.

I've had a Paypal shopping cart on my website for 5 years and have been very happy with it.

Hi Carol, I've recently created a site for someone using shop-script software. You can get a free version but it doesn't have payment processing, the 175? dollar version comes with a bunch of payment processing built in as well as a lot of nice features.

It's easy to customize as well. If I had to make a choice I guess it would be this one.

Haveing worked with the two biggest e-commerce/storefront software packages available as freeware, I'd be happy to discuss some alternatives with Mike. Just give him my email address and have him write to me, if he's interested.
