    Master Vladimir,

    Nice work. I like your themes. I have a Russian artist named Vladimir who I'm about to sell his paintings at one of my auctions. Have you ever written or thought of writing auction script? Thanks for your wp contributions.
    Sincerely,

    I have been using the amazing grace theme for over a year on one of our sites and really love it. I am using one an Itheme on our laser site http://fractionalc02.com and was thinking of switching it to the blue grace theme. Is it possible to upload a custom image in the header of blue grace without it messing up the formatting.

    Thanks again for the great work.

    Hi! I've just enabled your theme on my blog, its beautiful! It was fun to put random images in the header, I used a plugin for that.

    Thanks for creating the theme.

    Update:
    it's only hiding the widgets on child pages and specific posts. Thanks!

    Hi Vlad,
    thanks for directing me towards Brian, I'm now his daily nightmare. However, I'm feeling a little guilty for continuously pestering him, so I thought I'd ask you: on the front page I get widgets in the sidebar. On posts or other pages I don't. Is there a simple way of getting the same sidebar/widgets on all pages/posts (as in, seeing everything you see on the home page on every page)? Thanks Vlad, and thank you for the amazing theme.
