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!!!
