:: :: suspended animation :: ::

did i tell you that i am about to forge ahead into the fancy world of online advertising? my shop is doing well but i'm ready to take it to the next level.

mama wants a new house. no, really.

anyway, this is what i've got so far:

i just keep watching it over and over trying to decide if i like it. and i can't tell. at my core i'm slightly against animated advertisements for the web. they seem tacky and annoying. but i can't deny that on the blogs i read, i tend to notice the animated ads and often not the others.


so anyway, my question to you is this: whaddaya think? is it annoying? would you click on it? do you think it's an accurate (if limited) portrayal of my shop? thoughts?

I really like the ad, Julie, but your shop has so much more than just printable goods! What about all the wonderful quilts, aprons, fabric-covered buttons, etc.?

I love it Julie and even clicked on it just for fun -- it really pops with the colors you have used!

Love it - it does capture your shop very well! (You should link the ad here, to there! Your shop, I mean.)

Gorgeous. Did you do it yourself? If so, what do you charge?! I need one :)
