  • I'm so excited! - My new Website - Scotties Cards & Crafts

    My very first website www.scottiescardsandcrafts.co.uk launched this week and I would love to hear any feedback from anyone on the Forum. I hope you find it easy to navigate as I put a lot of thought into it from a crafters point of view. If you think anything could be improved upon or have any ideas for any "scottie dog" themed products I would love to hear from you. The site design was inspired by my little dog, a westie called Bobbie and I hope you like it. It was a mixture of terror and excitement on the day of the launch but I have calmed down a bit now lol. I still have lots more products to add which I am working on over the weekend - in particular a lot of the handmade cards section is "Coming Soon" ... but they should be added by Monday.

          I'm not sure I agree with that! The background is lovely, the welcome comments are well, welcoming - though I do find them a little small as my eyesight is ageing a little faster than I am!

          Navigating is dead easy, but could you put a warning on the piccies - that magnifier is shockingly good?

          The only thing I would really suggest is that as you get more sales and get better at it could you make the photos more clear. The thumbnails are a little small and that magnifier a bit too strong. I'd like to see more of the product as a whole. I know this is something that takes practice, just thinking about all the 'how to take good photos' threads there are here shows that.

          But it does look good and I hope the new year is a goody'un for you!

            Hi, thank you for your comments! I'm open to all feedback and am grateful that you have replied to my post and taken the time to have a look around my website. I'm going to play around with my font sizes as I agree now I have looked at it objectively they do look a bit small. I find the photos really tricky and I'm not sure I can change the thumbnail size but I love the zoomy magnifying thingy feature too as you can get really close to the picture. It's all trial and error for me but I think I may go back to my designers and see if I can make some changes. Thank you very much.

                Trial and error is what makes it fun, isn't it??????

                I'm so glad you took my comments as they were intended. The site does look good and I'm sure it will get better as you go on.

                To be honest I am taking in all comments and making some just in case I ever need to make my own

                        Thanks Kim, we love scotties and westies too - there are going to be loads of new scottie and westie themed items coming to the website over the next week or so as I have got a bit carried away with my crafting over Christmas!
