Please excuse me if this isn't the right kind of thing to post here but I
need help!
I created my blog:
It doesn't look like I want. It shows my whole long profile and I wanted
just a little (like many of you have) and then viewers can click on the
"view my complete profile". And it shows all the links instead of "click here
for links".
Also it got narrow. I don't know why. But it is long and narrow.
Please bear in mind if you respond to me that I don't know what I'm doing
I know no lingo. I don't know what a widget even is.
Thank you! ~ Linda

I have just finished going through my prints and they are fabulous. The colophon and the packaging was
the best yet. Thanks to all the participants, and thanks especially to Maria. Well done!

It would be difficult for me to respond as I tend to use geek and
techy wording.
I am a webmaster for dozen sites and I am sure I can help you

Send me your phone number (private e-mail) and I will walk you through
the fix.

Many printmakers (including me) are using powdered denture adhesive for Chine colle, etc. with great success. A print
conference several years ago demonstrated it, and its' popularity has taken off.

Just use water to spritz the sheet to glue up, dust it with the adhesive, and glue it down. It is repositionable
for a short time, pressure through a press or baren will seal and adhere it. I have had no trouble with wrinkles or loss of adhesion.

Hope it is many years before I have to sprinkle it on my choppers, but it has a place of honor in the studio. To me,
it beats methyl cellulose, my old standby.

Give it a try.
