    Hi everyone

    This is our new website which is currently on a test site. Any chance all of you lovely people could take a look for us and tell me what you think. Some of the sections are still empty cos we are still building it, but we would like to know if we are on the right track and would like any input.



    Thanks

    It's lovely!-Love the colour scheme and layout, very easy to navigate.
    Just a few things I might change though....it's a personal preference thing, other peeps might disagree... I'd take all your 'news', like your intro and who coming to do demos and put them on another page other than the home...you can send the page out then as a newsletter or mail out. I'd also get rid of 'store-top' as it's a bit superfluous. There's quite a few typo's too but i'm sure there the last of your worries while you're putting it together. Some of your images are a little pixelated but most are lovely and as a whole it looks like a really fresh site- well done!

      I like the look of it all - the colour scheme is lovely. I actually like to see a bit of blurb about the owner as an intro on the front page but agree that the forthcoming events could be on a link or something -perhaps get new items featured there. I like the font size of this sentence .Hi I am Heather Birkin, I own Handmade Heaven, a busy craft shop in chorley Lancashire and Crafty Addicts. as what comes later is a wee bit small for my comfort. I think you either need to say more about you and the company or make your pic smaller - so that the text and the pic match up and balance (hope that makes sense lol)

      Forgive me for being an ex english teacher old habits die hard 'n all that but would your intro sentence sound better like this:

      keep us posted on its development

        Thanks for your input, I will take your comments on board. I agree with the greeting sounding wrong I had suggested to my hubby to change that.

        Building this website has been frought with problems, our computer hard drive crashed and we lost a months work so had to do it all again, and then when we last tried to test upload it it would not work and we have had to start again for a third time, this probably accounts for any spelling mistakes as we are getting a bit fed up with it. We will check all this before it goes online as a working shop.
        Anymore suggestions, good or bad would be appreciated as we do want to get it right after all the hassle we have had.

        Thanks again
        Heather

              To me it looks a lot better and works a lot better and is a lot more flexible than the website that we have now. All I have to think about now is project pages, hubby is taking over the website
