So apologies for not posting yesterday, those of you that follow me on facebook or twitter might have noticed that I posted up a new website link...
I spent about 7 and a half hours straight working on a new website layout yesterday and it finally went live last night at about 9pm (massive thanks to the lovely Miss Danni Tatu for all of her amazing help, check out her awesomely gorgeous website here – doodlesbydanni)
the new site is much easier to navigate than my old one was + it has clearer buttons, links and a bigger gallery
it took me a ridiculous amount of time to sort out (mainly because I suck at anything flash or html related) but it's finally up and running now! (thanks also to Joe for checking the site for bugs + other crazy technical things and for putting up with me ranting on about photoshop headaches all afternoon)
i should warn you all though... the site is a total cacophony of girlyness with pink everywhere + candy colours, sweeties and other girly stuff (also thanks to Mike for being the first guy to visit the site, he thought it was insanely gay... i did warn him though!)
i apologize to my male readers/fans... it had to be girly though! (it matches the artwork after all)
anyway you can now visit my 'official' website here
oh and fyi it's a 'flash' site so it will NOT load on iPhones or iPads
and if it still won't load for you on a computer or laptop then check your adobe flash player...
