Thank you for ordering everyone. I have enjoyed making these fun and creative collages for you. Since the lack of orders lately, I am officially CLOSING this shop down. I will close this shop down around 5/31/13, so please hurry and order as fast as you can before I close this shop down on the 31st.
I know that some ALL the pictures are missing because they were in an album that I deleted.
I know that Jalyn's Collage Shop has many more orders and more happy customers than mine, and this shop is just a total waste of JUNK.
It's okay, it's okay. You guys like Jalyn's Shop more than me.
I was expecting many, oh so happy customers at my shop, but appearantly it wasn't
how I excpected.
NO, I AM NOT jealous.
Thanks for ordering at A Collage Wonder.

Sincerely,
Britney

Britney, I think you're overreacting just a bit. Yes, Jaylyn's shop may have more customers than you. But that doesn't mean that all her customers are totally happy with the orders every single time! Jaylyn has loyal customers because she has kept her shop open a long time, but she also tries her hardest at designing and enjoys what she does, just like you! Everyone can't be perfect all the time. The only reason I didn't ever order was because I never really wanted a collage avvie. Yes, they're pretty, but I prefer my site model avvies or popstars. I think you have done a great job running this shop, and, although I never ordered anything, I think know your customers were happy and satisfied with your shop and creations. I think it is really great that you try your hardest, you enjoy this, and you finish on time. It could possibly be what with another collage shop running, there just weren't enough orders to go around.
There is nothing wrong with your shop
And if you don't want people thinking you're jealous or thinking you just made that post to get more customers and you're just looking for pity, then I suggest not calling your shop a piece of junk.


No offense to Jaylyn or Britney, both shops are wonderful (:

Every shop has a different aspect towards it. Sarah's shop may be different from Tyrone's, but they both try equally hard. Now, just because your shop doesn't start out the way you want at first for it to, doesnt mean you have to close it down. You have determination, and I know that because you wouldn't of created this shop. Now use that determination to keep this shop open. Make the front of your shop change each week, maybe have a special of the week, or ask people to help you with banners. Offer small little graphics like pixels or try something unique such as collage avatars with a twist. Maybe make the, flash, or add small ideas to your shop that makes it stand out from the rest. Don't compare yourself, otherwise you'll make yourself feel worse. First, why don't you totally revamp your shop? First, change your shop title maybe, to something really creative. Maybe a lyric from a manga story or song of yours? Or maybe specialise in one aspect. For example, a good title would be:

On Top Of The World | offering unique collages for all members |

Then, at the front of your shop add a content page and say what page they are on now. Post the rules and then on a new post, put the avatars and signatures. For everything you do, add a picture.

Then, at the end, maybe add what will come through your Vm's when your order is done. Instead of the usual graphic, why not say you will be greeted to your order by a unique rhyme! Maybe, say for example if I ordered:

Neon, your signature is done,
Remember to credit and have fun!
Come pick it up, it's on page 4,
From the shop, Knock On the Door!

Try and incorporate as many original ideas and then your shop will boom with ideas. Don't be put down and keep trying. Remember, keep trying and you'll get there. Even the greatest of inventors had encountered problems, but they may have thought once or twice, "Hy a, doing this?
But they still carried on. And you will too, because you have the power and strength.do it Britney, you know what your capable of. The sky's the limit
I believe in you.
