If you want it done do it yourself!

A few months ago someone offered to help me create my website and now it's been over a month since I last heard from him. So basically, I got tired of waiting and I decided to do it myself. I actually thought it would be impossible for me to make my own site from scratch if I knew it was possible I never would have asked for help in the first place. Anyways, after reading some tutorials and watching videos online for a few hours I figured it was do-able. (I'm pretty good with a computer after all!) After 5 really really REALLY long days thetinyfig.com was been born! It's not perfect and probably not done the way a professional would do it but HEY, I've never done this before! Please stop by if you have a chance! Only the paper goods and earrings sections are stocked right now and I'm having a pre-grand opening/ valentine's day promo! Get 10% off all orders from now until Feb 14th when you punch in the discount code tinyfig10 at checkout.




Let me know what you think!
P.S. yes, I know the search doesn't work properly yet.

It's so cute! PS - you might want to set the background color to purple as well. I have a widescreen laptop, so your whole site was just sitting on the left, leaving a big blank white bar on the side!

ps - I LOVE the "press" section. Screenshots are such a good idea. i'm totally stealing that! =D

I looks fantastic! :)

Do you use anything for your mailinglist? I have a submit form too, but it's by bravenet and not very nice looking :(

It's lovely! What are you using for your cart/shop? I'm going to try to make a zencart pretty but not sure where to start...
Looking good!

Way to take the bull by the horns — it looks terrific! I've seen you around the etsy forums — nice to read your blog too :) As you've probably heard umpteen times, your stuff is a-do-rable.

Looks good. Although, some of the pictures didn't load in the categories.

Wow! For never having made a website, that's pretty damn good! Cheers to you for making the effort and doing it yourself! I'm sure as time goes along, you'll find better ways of organizing it!
