Firstly let me welcome you to the new look site. I wont bore you with all the technical details but I found out that the old template was no longer going to be updated and that an WordPress updates could break the site so I did a bit of lalala and fingers in ears but it became obvious that I need another template. Only problem was none of the original pictures would fit anther template so I have had to change every one….(twitch) and it has taken a while. So while I was at it I blinged up the site. Hopefully everything is working please let me know if I broke something.
I apologise for the long absence again. The first reason is the blessed computer died. I sent it for repair and they replaced the mother board. I got it back for about 3 weeks and it broke again. It was sent away again and they replaced the motherboard again. This time it broke while it was still at the repairers so they ordered another board…. thankfully this did not arrive within the 2 weeks repair time so they begrudgingly agreed to give me a new computer. Having lost quiet a lot of stuff I was a bit off all things computer for a long while lol. The second reason for the delay is we have decided to move house next March. Having looked at the house and garden through a perspective buyers eyes their is lots to be done before we put it on the market . So we have been very busy peoples. Hopefully the move will mean I can go part time so I may end up with much more time for craft which will be amazing.
Now site News there have been a couple of changes the first is the Krewella’s Charity button ( Please give much respect to my very talented Tech Department hubby as he took the picture of the butterfly in our garden) . Try as I might I can not wrap my head around selling templates. This site was set up as a free site and I just can’t change that so I came up with this idea. I have over 1000 subscribers and if everyone donated £1 ( add you own conversions lol ) I could raise a lot of money for charity. If you read my JustGive page I give my reasons for picking this charity. As you will see I do not have any dealings with any money raised all donations go straight to Cancer Reasearch. I am planning on doing the odd donation only template but I will give you more details when I have one ready.
The next new feature is the spotlight designer. I must apologise to poor Faith as she had no idea she was going to be the first I just popped over to her site and nicked her pictures… sorry Faith. I would love to feature other people please don’t be hiding behind your screen just email me your site or if you don’t have a site a bit about yourself and 6 pictures of cards you have made ( they do not have to include my templates ) I get so much inspiration from other people and you might inspire others. 🙂
And lastly I found out how to use google fonts on my site ( 3 hours much swearing ) Going forward I am planning to use this font in this size…well unless it doesn’t work but as I am not looking at your screen / phone / tablet I have no idea if it is better or worse and now might be the best time to find out before we are too many posts down the line.
Oooo very last thing I have done away with the download button because it’s so much easier to just link a small picture of the file than keep uploading button pictures. So just click the small picture below ( we will now see who reads the posts and who skips to the download button…. you know who you are lol and I will know who you when you email me ha ha ha.
