New goblin & new website up and running!

I am officially exhausted....I completely forgot how much work it is to get a website to a reasonably workable state....even with the joy of the iWeb templates. The most frustrating part of the whole thing is that while I can get the site looking lovely on my Mac, not everything translates as well on a PC.....which means I can't have reflections, some fonts or other twiddly bits (I believe that is the technical term) that I really like. Despite this, I'm pleased with how it looks. I've retained the easy navigation of the old site, but added in some nice options like slideshow on the gallery pages.
I've decided to open a shop page on Big Cartel for small items like cards and bookmarks and I hope to have this up within a few weeks (there will be a link on the website 'shop' page). To me, the site looks cleaner, brighter and less cluttered. I'm sure there will be adjustments along the way and of course the site will grow as more new work is added, but for now it's another task struck off my list.
The little creature pictured above is called "Bristlecone" and he's a Common Pine Goblin. You can check out his page here.
Hope you enjoy the new-look site. Please let me know if you experience any problems with it and I'll do my best to rectify them.
Till next time.
