Edited: The redesign is almost finished but there are a few nuts and bolts to be tightened down. Please look around and if you find something wonky that doesn’t work send me a note! Bobbie@ClumsyCrafter.com – Thank you!!
FYI friends: this weekend ClumsyCrafter.com might be down for a few hours starting Friday night as this site gets a new look!
This current look has been around for about a year and a half but before that there were some pretty funky designs. Thankfully the worst ones have been lost to the archives of the internet.
But… thanks to the Wayway Back Machine I found these….
This was how the site header looked back in 2010.
This was back when I still had to look up every single action I did on Photoshop.
Then I changed it up a little… but just a little.
Fast forward a year or so and once again I was changing things.
This was one of my favorite designs. For you techies that speak web design, this is the same exact non-responsive theme that I still have today – almost 4 years later.
Eventually I wanted brighter colors so I made a switch to this design –
It was colorful, that’s for sure!
Then I got tired of the colored social media banners so I made the sudden change to the current design.
Now I’m tired of all of it. The theme (what makes this site function) is really old in internet terms and doesn’t work how it should. The headlines are always off and the pictures just decide for themselves if they want to be centered or off to the left.
It’s just time to make a change especially since I just finished redesigning BlogElevated.com and love how clean it is.
So… If you show up here on Monday and this site looks the same as it does right now – it means that I broke something and had to install a backup to fix it. Don’t worry, I’m really good at installing backups, don’t ask why.
Hopefully you’ll show up and it will be shiny and new. Everything will work better and categories will be easier to find. We hope!
