Sarah and I started our little blog back in 2008 so we could share our crafts, baking, and sewing projects. Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine that our blog would provide us with so many opportunities and allow us to become part of a worldwide community of like-minded people. We have shared over 1000 posts and our original blogger platform was no longer meeting our needs. We are so excited to reveal our new site to you! Custom designed by Bellano Web Studio, it has so many great new features.
We love our fresh, modern look; our mobile responsive format; faster page loads; and new features. If you hover over our images, you can see the Pinterest “Pin It” button. At the top of the homepage, we now have a slide show which displays 5 of our recent projects. Underneath this you can see our 10 most recent posts. This will make it easier to find posts that interest you when you come to our site. If you subscribe through a blog reader (such as bloglovin) or email, you will continue to receive individual blog posts. Don’t forget if you follow us through google friend connect, you will need to switch to another service as that will no longer work.
Our posts have been divided into categories – Crafts, Sewing, Holidays, and Recipes, each with a drop down menu. When you open a category that interests you, you can see a gallery of all our projects in that category. This will make it so much easier to search through our past projects and recipes. Would you believe we have 85 sewing tutorials? Here is a screenshot of some of them.
Our Recipes have also been organised into categories and there is a handy recipe index. From this point on, we will be able to format our recipes into printable recipe cards.
We are so thrilled with our new custom wordpress site designed by Thauna from Bellano Web Studio. Thauna has taken our ideas and filled our brief perfectly. She has exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be happier with how our site looks and functions. She handled the Blogger to WordPress transfer, designed our new logo, added lots of cool features, and kept us regularly updated with the progress. If you are wanting to invest in a quality web design, we wholeheartedly recommend Thauna. Thauna has generously offered A Spoonful of Sugar readers a discount. Any “custom design” booked in February (deposit needs to be received by February 28th) will receive either $150 discount OR a free Blogger to WordPress transfer. Must mention that you saw the discount on A Spoonful of Sugar in your initial email to Bellano Web Studio. Space is limited.
To celebrate the launch of our new website, we will be having a fantastic giveaway next week, with many prizes generously donated by our sponsors. Stay tuned for all the details.
