Wow. I feel like I just lost ten pounds. I just transformed a 200+ behemoth of a website into a svelte, sophisticated TEN PAGES! It’s so much better, guys and gals. Now you will be able to find products much more easily, in a slick, professional layout.
How did I manage to compress so much into so little, you ask?
I no longer have a separate page for each rug or kit. Now, when you go to the Rug Kits page, you will simply scroll down. Everything you need to order is right there on the page. The beauty of this setup is that you will be able to compare directly between projects (size, design, price) to find the perfect one for you. No more bopping back and forth on separate pages. Mind you, it’s a long page, full of kits and rugs, so scroll to your heart’s content.
The one teeny drawback is that I don’t get to show you multiple versions of the rug project that I’ve hooked, so you will have to rely on your own fertile imagination. I’ve peppered the website in other nooks and crannies with those multiples, just to get your creative juices flowing. The main thing to keep in mind with everything you see on the site, is that I make these kits and rugs one at a time, so I encourage you to give me your favorite colors, and I will create the kit or finished rug to your own preference. You won’t find this kind of flexibility at any other rug hooking site, so use it. USE ME (what can I say, I’m a hooker)!
Please visit the site and let me know if you have any suggestions to make it better or easier to use. I’m sure there’s a random bit of text just floating around in the wrong spot somewhere, or a link that doesn’t link, so I’d really appreciate a once over.
And as long as you’re there, dear blog subscriber, you will get 20% off everything and anything on the website between now and September 8, 2017. All you need to do, to make sure I know you’re one of the “special ones” is that you need to put “I’M SPECIAL” in the Comments box on the Checkout page. Then I will refund the 20% through Paypal lickety-split. Don’t have Paypal? Just email me your order.
