There have recently been several people who have posted commercial ads within their posts sometimes with links very thinly disguised in the text, all of which is against the rules above.  As it says, if you are a retailer you may purchase an ad at the link given, the costs are quite reasonable! 

If you are a crafter and have an etsy shop or other such source for your home made items (which many of us love by the way!) there is a section to post your etsy type info as well.  Suzanne certainly understands that! 

I have removed a few of the commercial links while leaving the posts for now, but I’m sorry to have to say that if I must, I will be removing the membership of the folks who abuse the forum this way. 

We are a friendly group who love to share home-made, hand-made, farm-related, home-cooked, and family ideas, items, crafts, hints, skills and stories.  I know our long time members understand this, and maybe that idea isn’t clear to the many new members we’ve gotten recently. 

This IS your notice, thank you for your understanding.
