Great plans are in the works for the make-over of our Erik HOMEMADE® website and we want to keep you all in the loop! Right now we are busy picking out colors and graphics for the look as well as deciding what will stay and what will be moved! And rest assured, we will stay right at this address, Ben Franklin project and all!
It is an exciting time for us! The new theme is insprired by a 'farmhouse' look with a down-home feel popular during the American 1940's! Bright colored rick-rack and cheerful gingham aprons...pie and coffee, well, you get the idea! It is perfectly suited to our nostalgic view of thriftiness, creativity, food, crafts, quilts, and our location here in NW Ohio!
Don't worry! We will keep all of our own content intact...you know where to point and click! Most everything will stay in its orignial spot. The pictures, clip art, and graphics are what we intend to refresh with the vintage look. That said, if you are interested in any of the books for sale featured on the sides of Main/Home Page, please take a closer look now as these will certainly be moved into our Amazon 'Studio' aStore (accessible by clicking on the Ben Franklin Studio Store buttom on the upper left-hand side) by the end of next month. The Ben Franklin souvenirs, from Zazzle.com, will be available from our site until the end of the summer 2013, when we plan to remove them.
Over the next few months, you may notice little changes here and there: a ribbon that has changed, a button that looks different...and they probably are! (Did you notice the shadow we have added along the sides?) Some things may change back and forth as we decide!
So, please for the moment, pardon our dust...and know we are working hard so that you may enjoy a great new design! We will keep you all up-to-date! And please, if you would like to let us know how we are doing, feel free to leave a comment; we'd love to hear from you!
