I never saw one of her auctions and I'm the first to say that I'm not computer savvy enough to win one with her releases. Whats really upsetting is that these get won and then 2- 3 weeks later you see one or 2 of them on ebay for 10x the price. Oh well, such is life...
Hopefully by raising the price a bit, it'll reduce that some, and put more in Vanessa's pocket.
Count me among Vanessa's cheering squad who is pleased to see her bumping her prices upward.

Are a lot of her originals making it to ebay? I though it was the opposite. It appears to me a remarkable percentage of her originals get framed and displayed in forever homes.

You might see a bee or a monarch on eBay here and there but if you add up all the originals she’s sold over the years the percentage that pop up on eBay is incredibly low.

You all are right, you don't often see the bees or monarchs on ebay very often but the birds show up there more often. I would like to see the online auction because there would be more of a chance to win one of her bees or butterflies and she would probably make even more money on her beautiful work. I too believe that the increase is fine, in fact I feel she could even get more. Her work is absolutely beautiful.

Anyone else check a credit card security code issue, or is it an artifact of the autofill?

Failed today but scored in December so it's not as devastating as it used to be.
