Handmade Crafts Blog

Welcome to.. Our Blog!


Hello Crafters and Craft Fans!

It's been a long time coming, but we are finally launching the first of many interactive features here at Handmade Crafts - and in this day and age, where else would we start but with a blog of our very own?

We will be using this space for a number of purposes, but primarily to update you with any changes which we make to the site (and there are lots of really exciting changes coming up in the near future) - but also to pass on any snippets of news which you share with us.

So if you have something to share, but it doesn't quite justify a full Press Release, just get in touch with us and if appropriate, we'll blog it.

Stay in the know!

If you want to find out when we release new posts, hit the subscribe link at the bottom of the page and sign up via Feedburner (run by Google) - then you'll automatically get an email whenever we release a blog. You can also sign up to our Newsletter on the right, although we generally only send one a month.

Thank you and stay tuned..

Thats it for now, apart from saying a big Thank-You for all of your support! Feel free to leave us a comment below, or if you haven't already, make your mark on the Craft Supporters List! And stay tuned, because we'll be handing out our very own golden (or possibly papier mache) tickets soon.. :)

Hmm, it needs some Kev Lurve ;) Watch this space ;)

The site looks really good. I like how the layout is; nice 'n easy to navigate. One thing I would strongly suggest, though, is that you keep the banner ads down. Oh, you can have a few, just don't over do it. It makes the site take a long time to load when you have a lot of these ads and they are also really ineffective at generating revenue. In-context links are way better. Other than that, everything looks great.
