Spiced up with Trim

I wish there were a way to make a bunch of website related tasks exciting – then I’d never run out of blogging material. 🙂 I just can’t figure out a way to make php, css, html, modules, templates etc. exciting! And I’ve been doing a lot of editing on my website…pretty boring. Oh! I know – you should see this photo I posted on Flickr the other day…and believe it or not, it has does have to do with some of my website editing!

This is an apron I made to go to the auction at the preschool. (I hope they like aprons! BTW, the view is me looking down at my leg, incase the photo is confusing.) I have other things that go with this apron, but I don’t have photos, and yada yada yada….you get a picture of the apron for now.

So, do you see the row of cute pink trim above the ruffle? That is Michael Miller’s Ruffle Rac. It is awesome!!!!! Such an easy way to spice up your creations – or even “ready made” items. (Was anyone else in 4-H? Remember the ‘ready made’ category? LOL Basically you had to be good at shopping! Now that was something my sister and I excelled at. 😮 I digress… )

Well, the problem before was that my shipping was a per item table. So 6 yds of ruffle rac would cost the same as 6 yds of fabric for shipping. You and I both know that is not right! So I had listed the ruffle rac in 3 yard pieces to try to make up the difference – but sometimes, as was the case with this apron, you just need 1 yard of ruffle rac – not 3 or 6 or 9 yds. *sigh* Well, now….I changed my shipping to a per weight table. So 1 yd of ruffle rac is only 1 ounce and can easily be added to your order without making the whole shipping amount all wacky. 🙂

You can see the new shipping tables here if you’re interested. I am sure it will not be perfect, but I do hope it will make shipping a bit more accurate! For both of us. And all it took were some changes to a few cascading style sheets, hypertext processors and some new hypertext markup language. HA! (Of course, if it turns out to make things worse, I’ll have to edit them all back….so let’s just hope it is better. I have been known to delete my whole website when messing with these things! he he)

    When I did my new shopping cart, I had to do things by weight also. The “per item” shipping just wasn’t working out – and I don’t have as many items as you do by any stretch. I’ve found the weight is hard as well… I spent a whole lotta time on the shopping cart a few weeks ago – that’s why posts were lacking craftiness for a while there. :o)
