My design business has been busy this last year and I owe so much of that to all of you, my dear blog friends! Between the magazine features in Artful Blogging, your referrals, and the repeat business, I have installed and designed over 100 blog designs to date, and quite a few websites. I wanted to take a few classes to better my knowledge of web design in 2008, but I never seem to find the time for extra projects these days. Unfortunately I have to turn away a few customers a month because they want design features that I simply do not know how to do.
Well that brings me to a very exciting announcement I wanted to make: a new partnership I made with the very talented Leila of Lightning Bug Designs. Leila has the design skills that I am lacking, and she has agreed to take my designs and implement them into a Zen-Cart website for my customers. Zen-Cart is a great shopping cart system that has many features others don’t. You can view a full list of those features on the Zen-Cart website.
While I plan to offer custom designed sites for use with Zen-Cart, I will also be featuring several “Ready to Glow” websites that are pre-designed and ready for implementing! Each website will only be sold once, to assure that every customer has a one-of-a-kind unique web design. As a matter of fact, I have five websites designed and “ready to glow” now! (Please allow poor Leila a week or so to get them on her website and ready for purchase, as they will only be sold from her site exclusively).
Here’s a sneak peek:
I will continue to offer template designs for use with Pappashop, Merchant Moms, and ShoppePro, for those of you with a smaller budget, and of course, blog designs, business cards, postcards, address labels, stickers, blog buttons, etsy banners, etc. You can purchase any of those items on my website here: Design Menu
