Okay, I just read this over again, and it sounds kind of mean/harsh. I swear I don't mean it to be!!! It doesn't really even hugely apply right now, I'm just mentioning it because it's one of my biggest business pet peeves, ya know? Feel free to tell me to shove it - haha!

I'm kind of a stickler for spelling and grammar type stuff in businesses. Maybe I don't 100% succeed myself (I'm not too good at spelling, but I do try to double and triple check), but I know when I'm looking at others things, I tend to feel like "If she didn't take the time to edit / type well then I wonder how much effort she'll put into the item." Obviously you've put a lot of time into this already, and I know you and you'd never make or sell anything underquality. I'd just hate for someone to feel that way because of silly things like lack of capitalization (which is really the only thing I see right now that kind of bothers me in a customer type way... if that makes sense).

ah that was just how i type, i didnt think it would look unprofessional.........hmmmm i like lowercases for babymach because its "childish" if that makes any sense. i want babymach to feel fun and childish....innocent in a way........i hate the idea that it will come off as not trying......boo. know i dont know what to do

I defintely get what you mean for the babymach part. I think that's a cute idea and I do get that fun kind of carefree feeling with the things you've named the pages and all. I like it!
And I know th'ts just how you type. :) I really don't have a problem with it, since I know you and all and it's fine for like, personal communications.. I'd just hate for someone who doesn't know you to make a judgement on something silly like not capitalizing the beginning of sentences, ya know? (Just because I'm a bad person and know that I would if it wasn't a momma I knew.)

I was thinking about it today in class (instead of paying attention, haha), and what if you used one of those childish looking fonts?? I don't know how to chnage fonts on lj (if it's even possible), but on your hyena cart or webpage if you had a kid type font then I think it would be really cute.

These are kind of what I'm referring to:

Oh, or even something like this: http://www.abstractfonts.com/category/6/Handwriting

Oh yeah, but I forgot to answer the poll! *head smack*
Anyway, I like the colors a lot (Did you change them today? I thought it was purple before? Either way I like the ones that are up now!) and the little titles up top are really cute. And of course the picture of Machi is beyond adorable!!!

those fonts are really cute, i will look into that! yeah i am constantly changing the page around trying to figure it out. :) thanks

i redid alot taking what you said into account........i am going to look up changing fonts however, atleast for the posts.

Yeah I'm not sure how customizable LJ is with fonts and stuff. I've never really tried since I'm not that computer-literate! Maybe since you have the sponsored version it allows more in the way of fonts and stuff? I donno hopefully you can figure it out. :P

Ugh, sorry. I'm stupid and didn't test the links to make sure they worked right. The two for the abstract fonts page should be:
