New Look — New Features!

Bye bye old blog design… hello new!

 

old sew woodsy blog design

I’m so in love with our new blog design. This has been in the works (in my head) for the past few months. I loved our old design; however, it wasn’t wide enough and wasn’t doing everything I wanted it to do. AND we’ve had that design for almost a year now! Can you believe it?

Let’s talk about how our new blog design functions!

  • Navigation menu is now in the top right corner
  • Social icons & search are right at the top!
  • We have double side bars!!!
    • List of archives & recent posts
    • Subscribe to our monthly newsletter
    • Products we love & affiliates we work with
    • Reader Favorites visually highlighted
    • A link to my cooking blog; Katie’s Cucina

I’m sure I’ll be moving stuff around over the next few weeks, but for now we are up and running with our new layout!

Jelly Design Studio Logo

This new blog redesign could not have been done with out my friend Melissa from Jelly Design Studio. I’m learning more and more HTML, but let’s get real I’m so clueless when it comes to writing CSS which is what you do when you want your blog to have those custom touches. I did some of the customizations like tweaking our logo, redesigning the social media icons, etc; however, if you aren’t HTML savvy Melissa is the girl to contact! She offers a wide variety of services from custom blog designs, websites, and ecommerce packages at an affordable rate.

Sew Woodsy Amazon Store

We also have opened an Amazon Store where you can find some of our favorite products we use on a daily/weekly/monthly basis! We are constantly updating our store as we use a tool or a glue. We often get questions about what products we use. Now we can send you directly to it and if you want you can even buy it right their on Amazon!

What do you guys think? We love to hear constructive criticism! Let’s face it–the blog isn’t successful without our readers, so we love to know what you’d like to see!

  1. Congrats on the new look, it’s fantastic! Nice and bright :-)

  2. Looks great, Katie! The color scheme is lively, yet calming at the same time. Is that possible? I guess so and I love it!

  3. Love your new look! It’s so clean and easy on the eyes!

  4. Love the new layout! Is there an option that I can choose to get the whole post in RSS instead of just the first couple lines?
