Fresh & New Look and why things have been quiet!!

How are you all? I know I have been really quiet this last month but I have had my reasons (will get to that later) but firstly and most importantly, did you notice our NEW LOOK?

Not only do we have a brand, spanking new website but we also have a new blog design too! I would love to thank and recommend the services of these amazing ladies for their great work and have been a pleasure to work with.

Franchesca from Small bird studio has been working with me the last couple of months to create my new blog design and I am in LOVE with it. She offers not only affordable blog designs (and does wordpress too) but she was super quick!!

Our website was done by Wendy at SiteFresh web design and she has done a most incredible job. She had a great offer (that ends tomorrow) for a custom and professionally designed 4 page website for $100!!! And my site was live within 4 days from start to finish! She is incredible (and also designed my email signature too).

If you want to check out HOW AWESOME MY NEW WEBSITE IS you can click over from here!!!!

A quick navigate around there is the home page, the products page (with an order form enquiry underneath the images), Then there is an about me page (images by Willow Belle portraits), then a contact page. You will also see the gorgeous badges that Wendy created to not only invite you to read our blog but to also get a quote/enquiry.

I ask that all enquiries and orders be placed through the order form from the website as this will really make things easier for me to get all the info at once and it will be quicker for your order too.

NOW ON TO THE SECOND PART OF BUSINESS..
You will have noticed I have been really quiet both on my page (kind of) but mostly in here. The end of March sees a close of orders for the month of April so ALL 30 orders I had have had to be finalised and posted out before the close of business started.

WHAT WE ARE CLOSED? DO NOT PANIC I am not leaving forever just for the month of April and will resume in May with limited orders available until around Sept.

WHAT WHY? I am having a surgery, major surgery in a week for bowel cancer and having my full bowel removed with permanent illeostomy. So I have been told its a massive surgery and will need to be on complete bed rest. As hard as that may be for me I have to do what is best for my health and recovery. So month of April I am in hospital (Baringa Private in Coffs) and then the proceeding months at home on bed rest. Hence why only limited orders are being accepted as I wont be able to work the capacity I am now.

SO I AM RETURNING from May. But if you are worried about missing out on the Made With Love experience for an upcoming party LIMITED PLACES AVAILABLE for orders so fill in the order form on the website. I will then be in contact to discuss the deposit etc.

WE ARE STILL ABLE TO ACCEPT CUSTOM ORDERS WHEN WE RESUME!!

So if I am quiet and you have missed me, I do apologise, I have just been one crazy little bird!

But if you are wanting a great bargain for your crafty peeps, I am having a de-stash sale clearing out my craft supplies. If you want to purchase simply comment on any photo found in this album. IT ALL NEEDS TO CLEAR TO MAKE ROOM.

Until next time!

Oh one more thing I now have a new email you can contact me talya@madewithlovecardsandcrafts.com.au.
