"If you have an ad tracker blocker installed on your browser, like Ghostery, it may keep ZAPP from advancing. It's the way the code is written. Simply temporarily disable the ad blocker."

My application on ZAPP will not advance past "Save and Preview".

No questions have been missed. All images have been selected. I can't preview my images and can't check out. I emailed ZAPP but it will likely be several days before I hear back: especially with it being a holiday weekend.This is my first time using ZAPP since the site was redone. What special magic tricks do I need to use to get this to work???So frustrating! I was trying to meet an early bird deadline for a reduced fee.See More

"That is too bad the people at Home Depot or Lowes have not been helpful. I was surprised to hear that. My husband and I practically live at those stores with all of the art and home projects we have done through the years with several older homes to…"

"I solved the problem.  I suddenly remembered the acrylic sculptures I used to make. I would score the acrylic then snap it. The acrylic scoring tool cuts a very fine trough in plastic, pulling out a skinny ribbon of plastic. I found one of my…"

"Thanks. I found some rougher grit - cheap stuff I stopped using because it shed granules all over - under a pile of stuff. It does not seem to matter for this. I found using a wood file was actually helpful to take the biggest bumps off first. "

Excellent post of the day, Linnea! Thank you. I hope everyone who feels beaten down by the jury system reads it.

And the trophy goes to Linnea! Once again cutting through the words and explaining so clearly what everyone needs to hear. Good job on your recent comment at "Crafter Police".

Hi, Linnea!  Connie suggested I leave a comment for you... Coming from the Chicagoland area, what do you know of the Deerfield Festival of Arts in Deerfield, and the Naperville Women's Guild's Art Show?  Both of these are on the weekend of June 4-5... Have you done either of these or heard good/bad info on them?  Coming from Central Illinois, I know both areas are good areas, but I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on either show.  Any thoughts or comments would be most appreciated!  Many thanks in advance, then, for your time and efforts!

 

Warmest regards!

Thank you for your response. I have realized from perusing this site that there are just so many issues that I have never considered. I appreciate the advice from all of you who have been in the business.

Hi Linnea! I was looking for information about Artfest Midwest, and saw your post about booth recommendations. Since you did the show last year, do you have any booth location recommendations?
Thanks!

Thanks Lin for weighing in on A-RTS. These shows pay me, of course, to have their information shared and to have this one get such reviews from you is great! I appreciate it.

Hi Linnea...I'm exhausted tonight. I will call the hotel and see if they will accept your name instead of mine. It's a Country Inn and Suites which are nice. I'll get it done by 10:30 central time. Call me! 770 843 4604

Hi Linnea, not sure if you got my other messages, I seem to have a hard time manuvering around this site. I'm sure you're busy with shows right now.
