I’m usually the type of person who likes to do things from scratch so I get them just right. Recently, though, I have realized that can be an exercise in futility. And when it comes to my artwork, getting things like HTML files and CSS files to my exact specifications takes me away from doing art. With that said, I knew I wanted to change my Big Cartel Store to match the new look of my site. The default store is fine, but many people have that look so it doesn’t really stand out. So, I put off doing it because I knew it would take some work. Today, though, I decided to see if a good, free Big Cartel theme existed…and it does. It is available over at Tonka Park. While I can certainly play with the CSS more, it looks good as it is. Plus, I still have the option to change it later. Done and done…and now, I can move on.
Speaking of which, I will be sending out my first e-newsletter to some clients next week. Once again, I was able to find a template on this really great marketing site called Campaign Monitor that will do the trick. Campaign Monitor helps you create newsletters, make client lists and track the usefulness of your newsletter. For now, that’s all I need. I know it is cliche to say, but what did we do before the Internet?
