We Finally Created a Website!

I have been working on creating a Jewels for Hope website.

Now, I am by no means a graphic designer. Actually, when it comes to computer designing- I know nothing. Thank God I won a blog makeover from Just Married with Coupons- because I would not have the gorgeous blog I have today without that!

But, since we all know I am unemployed, I couldn't afford to have a graphic designer make a website for us. So I tried to do it myself.

I officially am somewhat happy with it. It took a very long time for me to be "somewhat" happy ha ha. But I am pretty proud that I was able to get it to look like this.

Now, it is plain and simple and gets the point across. I feel that once we get better pictures of our jewelry (which we are in the process of) that will be the real "show stopper" on the site- not the background design. It is still definitely a work in progress- but I am ready to show the world. I'm proud of it so far and it will only get better!

And besides, anything is better then nothing- which, we only had an etsy shop originally. Now at least people can see a little bit about us before heading into the shop. Which I love.

Take a look!

Tell me what you think! And be nice please.


  1. Wow! I am very impressed. I love how clear your photographs are. I am often browsing on Etsy sites and often the pictures are not real clear and do not do justice to the item being offered. Your jewelry looks so clear and lovely that I feel I could just reach out and grab a piece and put it on. Great job. Maybe you should consider doing web design. Good luck on the new site, I am certain that is will do very well.

  2. Wow! It looks great! How lucky of you to win the blog design! :D

  3. I love your header. Simple and sweet. What more do you need? =)


  4. I think you did a great job! Simple and elegant. Your jewelry is so beautiful!

  5. I think it's great! :) Simple is best!
