Thank you for that!  We do see what you are about because we have been down the handmade road along with you.  I think that is what some sites are missing, people that create themselves! 


We are making lists and writing posts and will be working on the site all next week as well as introducing...gulp...ourselves to the teams.  I'm sure there will be some fall out from some that see us as having a bias (there already has been a bit and I haven't even done anything yet!  :o  )[size=78%]because we own this site but I hope that after some time passes they will see that we really do have handmade interests at heart and would not dismantle teams to eliminate competition or other such nonsense.  In all honesty, I don't put too much energy into that type of action because I understand that artists have to go where they get business and I will support them no matter what.[/size]


Congratulations! Wonderful!  If you ever need any help with any grunt work or anything I'm there for yas.


I am sure I will be using you and any others that want to join us on our expanded playground!  :P

That's really sad that people are  leaving.  They really should know that you guys are all about supportig people who make things no matter where they sell them.
Hopefully, they will come back around.

Kind of just have to say oh well.  I know that everyone doesn't know us and we have no reason to think that they would trust us right off the bat and that is fine.  I have some projects in the works that will be both IBH and HAF involved that should benefit all.  In the mean time just getting the site rebuilt has been an adventure that will last a while!

People leaving before seeing the direction the site takes is idiotic.  Seriously.  Wouldn't you want to see first?  Even out of curiosity?

Who said anyone is leaving? Just curious as I must of missed something. As far as the web site goes there is no one to leave as no one was there. No public announcements have been made anywhere else yet accept artfire and every seems to be ok to me there.

Couple of questions I got seems that a few are going to drop the ArtFire group because of my "bias."  Those posts were deleted (not by me) and they are still there.  Guess they are going to wait and see...why do I suddenly feel like I'm on trial?  No big thing either way.
