Hi there. Quite a few of you have asked to see photos of what I'm working on, especially since the Gadsden Arts Museum in Quincy, Florida, accepted my hand-knitted items and handmade cards to be sold on consignment in its shop.

I've read through all the rules about KP, and I can't find any rule that specifically pertains to this issue.

Anyway, I'll go ahead and post this. If there are _any_ rules that I may have missed pertaining to posting a link to one's Facebook page, _please_ be sure to let me know. Thank you!

The name of my FB online shop is Hazel's Born to Knit. Its website is

www.facebook.com/hazelsborntoknit

Wow. That is weird! But then again, Facebook is really weird. Sometimes I post something on Hazel's Born to Knit, and then it disappears.

Have you tried going to Facebook and then, in the search window, typed in Hazel's Born to Knit? I wonder if that would work.

www.facebook.com/hazelsborntoknit

The only other thing I can think of is to click on one or both of these:

http://www.facebook.com/hazelsborntoknit

https://www.facebook.com/hazelsborntoknit

I thought I'd put the URL there again, just in case. It should also work if you click on the link in my sig line, below.

I wish I knew why this wasn't working. (Probably because it's Facebook! ;-) )

Thanks so much for the tip! When I go to the page, the whole thing opens up for me. But that may be because I'm the owner of the page or because of the way I've got something or other configured.

When I go to the page, I just page down and continue to page down. The photos then show up, along with descriptions of all items. (I created a separate "album" for every item.) If I click on "Photos," I find that the descriptions have disappeared. Hmmmmmm.

Facebook is _very_ strange. To put it mildly.

I thought that at first but, if you scroll w-a-a-a-a-y down, the pictures all show up. Sometimes there are comments between each set of pix but the pix are there. Try again.

Thanks so much for checking it out, Dottie! Yes, to my horror, I've now found that you have to scroll waaaaaay down to get to my items and the descriptions of them. That wasn't the way I set up the page, but Facebook has its moods, shall we say. ;-)

All I can say is that Facebook is, um, weird. I've never had a shop on FB before, and I'm seriously considering moving my shop to another site. Things that I post--pictures, descriptions, prices, just regular ordinary posts--on my shop keep disappearing. Or moving somewhere else. I've sent FB a note that there's something wrong--when some of my photos simply disappear, I want to know why--, but I don't expect I'll hear from them.

I found FB about the easiest platform to put my shop on--and that isn't saying much. Even that took such a long time to set up. Now, granted, I am not a techie, so no doubt platforms look much more difficult to me than they do to other people who know a lot more about tech things than I do.

I had a shop at Etsy.com quite a few years ago. So this time, I of course went to Etsy.com first. Now it's gotten so complicated, at least for me, that after trying for several hours to set up a shop there, I simply gave up. I'll have to try it once again.

Arrrggghhhhhhh!

Hazel
