best thing ever this week

Do any of you use FireFox? Well it is all I use - and I love it. I even have a fun theme on mine that I love because it is so fun.

PimpZilla: Very Good Bad Taste. I have been using it for about 3 years.. and do not plan to switch.

Check out some of the screen shots::

See what I mean?

Anyway the point of this post is to tell you about my new favorite FireFox Add-on - Clippings!

Clippings lets you save your frequently entered text to insert into any website.. The perfect place to use this is my etsy shop listings. See at the end of every listing I type in something about questions and Thank you.

This gets old after a couple of listings, but with Clippings all you have to do is type it one time and then BAM - you can insert that anywhere..

For example - In Firefox I can just right click where I am typing ( here for example) and choose Clippings>Etsy Listings and Voila - I have this::

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.

Sarah Jane & Bentley Vintage

Not in pink of course.
Clippings is the best thing evah.
