Websites and Winners!

Kate Hart
A month ago, I asked for help with my website revamp project, and y'all gave me some fantastic suggestions. You sent me to several sites I'd never seen before and even got me started on some FAQs!

Your suggestions had a lot in common. First of all:
EVERYONE LOVES STEPHANIE PERKINS' WEBSITE.
And with good reason. Look how cute!

Her header is adorable, and the site itself is easy to use, which is something y'all mentioned a lot- top navigation with clear labels was very popular:

Stephanie's site also makes good use of white space, another element many of you like:

(I love that Cass suggested Emilia's site, because I took that picture of E on the right, when we were in LA!)

Of course as queen of the internet, Maureen Johnson has an appropriately awesome site. Labels at top, easy to navigate, and white space around the important parts.

So. To thank you guys for giving me so much great info to work with, here's a little giveaway. I numbered the comments...

and went to random.org for a number.

Congrats Sam! Let me know which online store and I'll email you a $15 gift card!

(By the way: I still owe several of you tote bags from... uh, last spring. I know. They're sitting in my dining room, where they've been sitting since... um, last spring. For real. I need to get addresses and I'll be sending around emails soon. Like really soon, not "six months from now" soon.)

Given my incredible punctuality, I'm sure this redesign will take no time at all.

  1. I wish I knew how to make such awesome headers, but I just don't have the computer graphic skills...

    Good luck with your site makeover!

    All these websites are really pretty. I'm having so much love for Lauren Strasnick's website. :)

  4. Ooh! I wasn't around for the poll, but I'm loving the results. My own header's being designed right now. I'll send my paid-in-chocolate designer here to admire the websites you've pulled together!

  7. Great collection of pretty websites, Kate! They're all awesome. Hmm, now I wish Google sites had more themes...

    But I like my cute little notebook theme, too.
