New Blog Design Finally Here!


Something looks different, right?  Well, that’s because Jeff and I have been working on a little blog re-design (well, mostly Jeff, though I gave my two or three cents).

And I am really happy to be able to finally show off the new, streamlined look.

We’ve been talking about doing this for a long time now. So, I am really tickled that it’s here and finished. I wanted something that focused more on the content, was easier to navigate, and was more integrated with the overall design of the exhibition site. And I think we’ve done that.

Jeff and I added some drop downs to reduce the clutter on the sidebars and there are now several ways to shop from the blog as well. Fun stuff!

I’ll be making some tweaks and additions over the coming weeks. So keep checking back for new little things. And if you have any feedback or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you. So, please leave your response in the comments below.

I love the new design! Very clean, and it makes navigating through past posts and shopping even easier without losing papernstitch’s branding. Great work you two!

Really nice and clean – much brighter than before – not that it was dark if you know what I mean. Seems pretty logical to navigate as well which I really like 🙂

Aw, thanks so much for the love everyone! Much appreciated. Truly! And just to throw it out there, if someone out there has something less than positive to say, that’s okay too. Not that I am seeking it out or anything. Just trying to say that all feedback is welcome. 🙂
