Hello fellow shop owners. I hate to have my pic taken so please no comments on my fatty pic okay? I have just finished my "About me " page and used the best photos I have that would fit the size boxes. Most of my good pics seemed to end up looking like the jolly green giant sat on them ... squished. I wanted buyers to know that I REALLY do make these from scratch. Thats important to me when I buy handmade so I try to be true to handmade. It is about how I came to want to design bed crowns in the first place. I guess I never outgrew my desire for a canopy bed as a little girl. So >>>> how bad is it ?? I've got my big girl panties on so I can handle it.

I think it looks GREAT!!! What a wonderful job you did on your About Page! And I think you look beautiful and vibrant. If there are pictures you want to use in your About Page but they are not the right size, you could resize them and use them in there. Usually there is a way to find out what sizes work on Etsy. I have not done my About Page yet!

I agree with Debbie... your About Me tells a great and complete story, but does end abruptly. Why not add something like... Canopies and Bed crowns are appropriate for ages 0 to 100...afterall, you are never too young, OR too old to be a princess. Something cute and catchy to make the reader smile!
What a great product you are selling... wonderfully made! good luck!

I like it! You look very approachable and friendly, and the products are really nice. I do agree to add a nice closing statement; maybe something about how you love working with customers to come up with the perfect enhancement for their little girls' room.

You didn't want comments about your pic but it looks great and you have such a delightful smile.
I thought your bio sounded really interesting. The proof reader in me would suggest breaking it up into paragraphs, and like Debbi suggested, I'd end it with some sort of closing line, maybe something to do with like you were saying here about how important handmade is to you, and passing that on to the customer.

I really like your about page!
At least you had the guts to put your pic up there (unlike me! I look like a zombie! I only just got the guts to put up one of me in a listing today!) and to be honest, your picture is NOT bad! You look healthy to me!
Bed crowns are such a lovely idea! It doesn't chop out a huge section of room like a four poster does. Really innovative, and your story is easy to relate with too!
Nicely done, and I wish you success in the future!
