A Palliative for Absolute Write Withdrawal Symptoms

New items are up at OhDawno's Ebil Library and Gifts CafePress store. Total proceeds from all sales go to support Absolute Write. They make great gifts for your favorite writer, too.

More items will be added soon. Your suggestions are welcome. If they come with the appropriate graphic and written permission to use it, that's even better!

I have a suggestion! I have a suggestion! :)

Don't forget to add journals and postcards. I sold a ton of those through my cafepress and I really think they'd be a useful addition. :)

Dawno said...

Great idea! Which design(s) would you suggest?

Art_Addiction said...

Yay! I'm glad you like it! I'd go with any or all of these:

+ The Pro Writer one
+ I survived/Shutdown Survivor
+ Learn Writing with Uncle Jim

I can try to come up with some designs, too, if you'd like. :)

They're up!

I don't see the rocket launcher, yet. It should have several individuals photos on it. Ammo would be nice, too.

Thank you for your consideration.

Another thought is, auctioning off your ears, even though you're "attached" to them. *g*

A spare set, maybe? :)

Hehehe, I have a few ideas too!

I *need* a mousepad that says "BIC! Because Uncle Jim Says So!" or something similar. The "BIC" is the important bit. I want to be able to glance at it whenever I'm feeling the need to vacuum the cat.

More "genre specific" "I am a professional author" t-shirts. Maybe one for romance writers? I can't think of any that wouldn't be vaguely dirty, though.

Oh... and does anyone know how heavy/thick the cafe press shirts are? I'm not looking for "survive the Arctic" or anything; I just like my t-shirts opaque.

Dawno said...

JeanMarie - not gonna get into auctioning - too much trouble! I looked for a rocket launcher but CafePress doesn't seem to offer them...

tlh, mousepad on its way - look later tonite or early tomorrow. Answered the t-shirt question in comments on your recent blog post (btw, lovely blog!)

Another feel-good moment:

Look who's number one at Yahoo!

Too cute!! I'm off to go get one.

I did want to let you know that the reason your sidebar maybe be giving you trouble is because there is something in your sidebar that is bigger than the amount of space allocated for the sidebar. Firefox just lets it overrun the borders but IE pushes out the borders of the sidebar to accomodate the element.

This template uses the *float* tag to align the sidebar with the posting space. Because the sidebar is now too big for the space allocated it for it, IE pushes it down to the next area where there is space for it. You'll have to adjust the dimensions of the object that is causing this until it fits within the dimensions of your sidebar in order to fix it.

And now that I've completely hijacked your comments to tell you something that you probably already knew, I'll kindly slink back into the lurkosphere.

Keep up the good work and thanks for visiting my blog.

Indigo, I *didn't* know that! Thank you. I now know what is the problem and how to solve it. Bless you.

I do care about IE users and don't want them to go away mad!
