Candied Fabrics New Website

Candy Glendening is a fiber artist I met 3 years ago when she volunteered to test the Note Taker, my first sewing pattern. I’ve enjoyed watching Candy’s artistic journey unfold, one of her latest creations are these fabulous 3-d houses titled Home is Where the Art Is.

She recently launched a new website and is celebrating with an amazing give away, you have till November 25 to enter.

Besides wanting you to go over there and give her your crafty go-girl support, the techie side of me is totally impressed with her website. I’ve been doing some research lately on a new blog theme (yeah, I realize my banner’s about to celebrate it’s 2nd birthday!). When people ask me for advice about setting up a blog I always recommend WordPress. Besides being open source and free, it absolutely rocks in terms of the endless widgets and functionality it offers. If I can think of a feature I want on my blog I know I can find a WordPress plug in that will do it for me.

The latest iteration of WordPress blog themes support an integrated blog, e-commerce, website format. Candy’s new site is an example. I absolutely LOVE the gallery. I just think this is so cool. Power to the little people, technology we can grow on!

Congrats my friend!!!

    I second the WordPress love. I had a friend build my website for me (and I can update it with Adobe Contribute which I also highly recommend for that kind of thing). He was able to tweak a WordPress theme to match my website. I self-host and it’s been mostly a breeze to take care of. (The parts that are not a breeze have not been WordPress’ fault.)

    Go Candy!

    I can’t get on the site. I can only hope it’s because so many people are trying to get on at the same time! I think I’ll go back and chant, “open, open, open” until something happens. I’m really eager to see those houses. 8-)
