This site has undergone a huge visual transformation, at last.
While it had a good run with the previous layout, I felt that Crochet Buddies needed a breath of fresh air, and had so much more potential with a new layout. Making these changes was vital to moving forward. So here’s the new, improved version of Crochet Buddies! I hope you like it as much as I do. 🙂
What Has Changed
- I’ve increased the font size, so no one has to squint at the old bothersome tiny font anymore. It’s been one of my main frustrations with the old layout — hopefully now this will be much easier to read. (If anyone would like the font even bigger, let me know!)
- For simplicity’s sake, I’ve combined the Crochet Buddies Online Store with this main site, so now Shop orders can be placed directly through here — even on the front page! If you click the “ADD TO CART” button, the selected item will automatically be added to the basket in the lower left corner of your screen. I think this makes the ordering process a lot more convenient. 🙂 Note: If you view any CB Store Updates on this Blog that were released prior to today, the links won’t work, as they led to the old Online Store site (also because the products were sold or are no longer available).
- After the first minor adjustments, more extensive design took over, and I ended up rebuilding the entire main page. I think it looks even more professional now, while retaining the feel of community.
- Design aside, all Blog posts, Forum posts, and other content remain unchanged.
- We’re still Crochet Buddies — that will never change. 🙂
Now that the much-needed adjustments have been made, I can finally return to writing, sharing projects, and interacting with other crafters. Time to breathe a sigh of relief, pick up some yarn, and begin again.
