I was bored, so I tried to design it myself. I don't think it looks too bad! What do you all think?

I really like the general layout, but I find the blue on red on the product pages a bit difficult to read... nice work!

I think the red catches your eye more than the products on the page. My eyes just want to gravitate to the red space. You really need your products to jump out instead.

Hope, check out my life at http://thethriftyqueenspeaks.com

It not what you love, it's what you want customers to see that counts I'd go at least with a deep red because while the red is pretty, it's really hard on the eyes to stare at while shopping. (love your stuff BTW!)

I know. I think it's because I did it myself. I changed it a little, what do you think now? http://hyenacart.com/elliebaby/

Easy on the eyes and I can "see" your products better, good job!

This is much, much better. Far easier to look at, and the colors are more consistent with your product.

Do you know about Portland's Saturday Market? Nearly year-round, pretty high quality craft fair. www.portlandsaturdaymarket.com Worth looking into when you get here.

Rhu - mother,grandmother,daughter,sister,friend-foster,adoptive,and biological;not necessarily in that order. Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way (Jimmy Buffet)

Thanks for the tip. It looks great. We can't wait to move. There are no like minded families near us. And we already know a few people in Portland from here.
