Well, what a week.
My domain name for the old website ran out and I rather naively thought I could just buy it through the new website host. Oh No! That would be far too simple. My original host has refused to let me transfer it or release it so I can re-purchase it for the new website. . I could use it through them by somehow attaching the domain name from them to the new host site, but it would take 6 weeks and cost lots. Having two brothers working in I. T I know this is horlicks.
So what I've had to do is buy the domain name and use the website to point people to my new website. 40 dollars for a domain name AND I have had to buy a new domain name for the new site.
I won't tell you what words are going through my head BUT www.stitchersanoncrossstitch.com is up and running!
It is a wonderful company to work with and it's going to be so much easier to be organised. It even has a little blog area so I can show sneaky previews and offer discount codes etc. And a newsletter! Yay! I can do a newsletter!
Oh, before I forget! I've added the RAK section to the 'ABOUT US' bit ....so I can keep everyone's details safe and in one place. And because this website is oh so dreamy, you can even let me know what kind of thing you would like as an RAK! How brill is that!
There may be a few glitches because I've built it myself, ie a chart not showing pdf and paper options, but on the whole it is good to go.
I'll be adding fabrics and threads over the next week or so to get the shop nicely stocked, and then, well, watch me fly! (possibly crash landing but that's ok: you have to crash now and then to enjoy the good bits of life right?)
So the new releases this week are 'Bleak House'
....and The Year of the Hare- February.
Holmsey is very popular and because so many people seem to like him, he has a fb page all of his own. Feel free to pop over, the more the merrier! And as far as I'm aware, you don't need a fb account to join in (I think....might have to check that one!).
Right..I have Holmsey March to stitch and a baby blanket to crochet...after I make five carrot cakes...so all good fun.
Have a wonderful week and I hope to see you all soon xx
