YES WAY!!!!

Hey... Guess what I did with my holiday weekend (and there's still one whole day to go)?
I completed my wellerwishes site redesign!!! Yipee!! If you are so inclined, please take a peek and let me know what you think. I would love to hear if everything is showing up as it should for you. Is it taking awhile to load? Please let me know. If there is any little weird things happening (and there is bound to be at least a couple) I'd like to do whatever I can to correct them. So feel free to let me know if you have a minny.

Thank you thank you thank you!!

(Now get off the computer and enjoy the rest of the weekend!)
(Hah!! I am one to talk!!)

Well done, looks great!
I checked all the links and everything worked for me plus loaded quickly.
Love the mellow blue background.

Kathy Weller said...

Thanks so much, Roz!! I really appreciate it. Things can look so different on different computers, and I have not yet had a chance to check it out any other machines yet.

Yes -- the blue -- I needed a change from the orange. I mean, I *love* orange, but... ;)

I love it kathy!! You did such a wonderful job with it. Is very chic :o) Plus is consistent and easy to follow.

I love the main paige is beautiful and the whole look through out the site. The links worked fine with me. Didn't take long either.

My only suggestion (and this could be just a matter of taste really so you can ignore me completely if you want... :o) is with the cute little colored squares were we click in order to see your art . They look so lovely but to me is a bit hard to follow. I might miss some of your art because I forgot which one I clicked before and what comes next. Maybe if you added a number on each one that also would appear besides the larger piece being displayed at that moment. Or something like that.

Besides that it looks amazing Kathy! Congratulations girl :o)

Kathy Weller said...

Alicia, that's a really good point. Thank you.
I've done the tiny art work squares in the past and they worked great.
The color block squares were a new experiment for me. I wanted to see if I could get by without the squares based on the art work -- it's more work to do them. But, I think it might be wise move to switch them out with thumbnails as you suggest. You brougt to light something I was seeking to avoid doing, but probably to the detriment of the site!!! So THANKS!!! :)

Kathy, the site looks fabulous. I loved your old site, but this one is admittedly even better! Very nice layout and feel.

Alicia brought up a great point. I too, was fascinated by the colored boxes. But I found myself wondering if I missed anything, so I started going back over them in order to make sure I got them all. My peabrain could not keep straight which "colors" I already clicked on.
Love the site. Drooling over how nice it look, chickadee!!!

Kathy!
Your website is amazing and very easy to navigate! I love the color squares to see your other pieces in each category. I also love how easy it is to get to your other sites and blogs to shop and learn all about your work. Very well intergrated and very well done!

Kathy Weller said...

Tomato -- Thanks so much!! SO good to 'see' you!!

Nicole - ditto!! so good to see you too and thanks for the feedback.

Thank everyone for their helpful and insightful comments. I also had a helpful little birdy (who really knows her web stuff) who chimed in privately with some really awesome feedback which I will be implementing (thanks again SO MUCH, birdy!!)

I am now considering what I have more of a work in progress. I need to make a ton of updates! I am excited, but there is much to be done... I will for sure post here when I have more changes to show. Thanks so much everyone!!!

Diana Evans said...

love your changes to your site...it looks awesome and so proffessional...great work Kathy...
the colours are so inviting and the layout is perfect...nice usability factor too...

well done!

Diana Evans said...

oh yeah I just wanted to add the same as Alicia...the little boxes would be cool if you could differentiate each...perhaps even adding a thumbnail shot of each illustration....

Kathy Weller said...

Diana, thanks!! Great comment, I'm going to do that -- you will see that change this week sometime , this weekend at the latest.

Thanks all!!

carol eldridge said...

very sweet Kathy, love all the illustrations...my only thought is that the type is a bit light to read...can it be made a bit darker or heavier?
I think you loose some of the impact of the words(type) against the lighter background, just wondering....everything works well, so that's good, just a suggestion to try...

talk soon,
best,
carol

Melissa & Emmitt said...

ellencrimitrent said...

good for you looks great!! I wish I had time to do mine over but sadly no!!

Kathy Weller said...

thanks Ellen! It's a work in progress for sure -- I just did a big update last night. I'm not done yet though.. :)

Kate said...

Oh, yes, I emailed you earlier this week to tell you how great it looks. I just happened to "wander" over to your site this past weekend and saw it. It looks terrific. All of the pages seemed to load just fine.

Kathy, the site looks great. Supers easy to navigate and everything came up quickly. I think this version showcases your work better.
