newsite.jpgI have just made a new site and I am REALLY hoping for your opinions on it!

I have been working a lot with making the design look "old and worn" and a little like scrapbooking or patchwork. I was very happy with it so I showed my new site to my boyfriend and he didn't like it!  bear_sad  He thought it was tooo bright!

I think that a childish and bright apperence would look great with my bears! Or do I have bad taste? bear_wacko  bear_tongue

What the heck, you're welcome to visit my new site:

Hi Jennie,

I love your site!  And the bears are so adorable  bear_wub   

I can't access your site from the link on your post, but I can get to it from the "website" link under your avatar. 

I wish I could see the English version (isn't that the link on your post?) because I would love to read all the interesting info.  I think people would love spending some time perusing everything.

I think it's wonderful!  My own site was just redone in baby pinks and funky dots.  And my 14 year old son said, "It's too pink, mom.  Change the colors."  But he's not a 41 year old female bearmaker catering to MY audience.  So that's his opinion... but not a good bit of business advice, in the end.  Sorry, beloved Toby!

In the end, your site has to reflect YOU and the branding (look, feel, tone, style) of YOUR bears.  I think you've done a bangup job of exactly that and frankly I wouldn't change a thing if I were you.  It's very fresh and fun, to echo what Penny said, just like your work.  Your boyfriend gets to have his opinion and it's certainly valid, but it's not necessarily good business advice in terms of how to best broadcast YOU and how to best sell YOUR bears.

This is so very whimsical and FUN!! I lv it & envy you & your code-building ability, to saty nothing of 2 languages!!!
And I'm so glad that you postedyour new pic! Like Michelle in Minnesota, you areboth  so much younger and better looking than your old pix! Both of you looked like your own mothers (or at least their ages) in the previous posted avatars!

So, what's your Dorian Gray-ish secret???!!!

Love it!  It's just gorgeous :)

You've done an excellent job of reflecting your personality and the style of your bears not only in the photographs of bears themselves, but in the style of layout and colour scheme etc.

I think it is totally fantastic, love the colours - not too bright in fact I think they are nice soft faded shades, so does give a slightly warn look.  I think it's really creative - you should feel really proud - did you use a particular package to design it?
