The house is a mess. Papers and clip-art books litter the family room. I haven't cooked a meal in weeks. BUT the newly designed and renovated The Pattern Box was launched around midnight this morning! Please take a moment to visit. I think you'll be glad you did! There are still a few things missing ... some dolls and a few free patterns; a couple of item descriptions; the tips/techniques page; and a few more clip-art decorations. I'll get to those in the next few weeks.
Since I opened The Pattern Box in June of 2008, I had envisioned a website that was fun, colorful and easy to navigate, while incorporating kind of an old-fashioned feeling. I tried my best, but with my limited abilities and time, I ended up with a hodge-podge of over-sized photos and hard-to-read fonts! Yet, I reminded myself, the site was up and it was working. That was good enough.Over the years; however, it became a very small dream that, one day, I'd get to see my website the way I knew it could be ... SO ... I want to publicly thank my very-talented son (okay, and I want to brag about him a little bit, too) ... who used his computer savvy and his graphic-arts genius to re-design my website and create all the fabulous elements that pull it together.
Thank you, Kent! (BIG HUG) It's exactly what I wanted!!
