I’m willing to barter with you if you are the maker of these items. In exchange for your product I’ll write a blog post review for you and/or you can pick what you like form my online art shop.

Merry Christmas! xo

The original pretty mandala art shown above I created with white gouache and black india ink on red Canson paper. It measures 5×5 inches (12,7cm by 12,7cm) and is listed in the art shop.

Are you great at CSS for WordPress?

What I want.

  • 3 columns using the Tarski theme currently activated on this blog with either column on each side of the main posts
  • The ability to delete the custom header image if I want
  • The custom header image size increased to the width of the new design
  • Comments to appear immediately after the post rather than at the bottom of the blog
  • Tags hidden from each post with only categories showing
  • The main body where posts are needs to remain 500px wide
  • An HTML version of the Etsy mini so that I can insert items I have for sale in my shop into my sidebar. The current Etsy mini is only available in Flash or Javascript and WordPress.com allows neither.

If you can do this please leave a comment on this post and I will email you or you can directly email me at: eastvanesica (@) gmail:DOT:.com

What I’ll Do

I will trade art prints for custom WordPress.com CSS to update the look and feel of my blog. I will mail the print(s) directly to you wherever you live in the world. You can see the art prints in my shop. We can discuss the cost of barter privately via email. :)

Comments on this post will close once I reach an agreement with a CSS designer.

Thank you.
