  • New and Improved Milomade | Milomade
    time looking at other successful online brands and shops from a customer point of view I asked for lots feedback on my own website from a select few people and took all their constructive criticism on board I talked through everything with my mentor hired a copywriter and went through several design revisions And here we are now Below is a list of some of the improvements and changes I ve made New and Improved Navigation The website focus has shifted from being an informative site to being an online shop so the first thing you will notice is that the navigation reflects this and from it you can access all the main shop categories directly You can also find out about the work I ve done to Commission easily and find my contact page more directly Because of the shift to being an online shop my About and other info pages have taken a bit of a back seat and you ll find links to these above the main navigation on the left where you ll also find icon links to my social media presence New Homepage The homepage has had a total revamp and is now full to the brim of images and links that take you directly to product listings and important information on the website Bigger Better Shop Category Images With bigger shop category images it s now easier to find your way around and see the products you want to peruse and buy New Account Links Sign In Out Favourites At the top of every shop page you ll now see this bar where you can view your account details past orders address book etc as well as sign in and sign out if you have an account There is also a link to your Favourites This is a new feature in my shop that allows you to favourite products and add them to a list to view later or to share with friends and family Christmas Birthday present hints etc Simply click on the small love heart icons that appear on the product thumbnail or in the product description and the item will be added to your favourites list Shop Search Facility I ve added a nifty little search widget into the left sidebar of the shop so that you can search for specific products or materials etc The search brings back a nice list of products where you get a thumbnail of the product a product title a product description the price and a link Breadcrumbs I ve added a breadcrumb trail underneath every category title so you always know where you are The links in the breadcrumb trail all work so you can easily retrace your steps backwards by using these links Product images that reflect your selections Another new feature in the shop is that when a product has options e g you can buy a single greetings card or a box of 15 the product image changes depending on your

  • New Year, New Start | Milomade
    Twitter Upcycling Valentines Gift Vintage Website Wholesale Windchime Winter Warmth 2015 Work In Progress New Year New Start 15th January 2015 Many of you may already know that I have another life that of a web designer I ve been self employed since 2003 and have successfully run Eskymo New Media Design for over 10yrs although I ve not updated my website for a few years now It s been brilliant to be my own boss and work my own set hours and fit my job around my life etc but over the past few years things have had to change I m now a mum of one and since returning to work after maternity leave I chose not to go back fulltime I made the decision when I was pregnant that I wanted to be a fulltime mum and raise my son during the early years until he reached nursery age and then onto school and so opted to just keep up with work one day a week This has proven quite tricky and frustrating as projects dragged on for months and months and it was difficult to work on more than one project at a time and keep up with coding developments and technology that was continuously reinventing itself I ve found that my enthusiasm for the job I ve loved for so long slowly depreciating and my need and want to create and make accelerating So I applied for Next Steps in 2013 and was awarded a place on the programme It was my way of starting the ball rolling to make the shift from Milomade being a part time occupation to a full time one This year I ve made yet another shift in this direction One of my web clients has hired me as their web monkey so to speak and I m going to be working for them from now on one day a week I m not giving up on Eskymo completely as I ve got a few projects for clients still to complete etc but I m definitely putting it on the back burner with regards to finding new work With my new job I can concentrate on one web client and hone my skills and knowledge to suit this clients needs I no longer need to worry about finding new work or when the next pay cheque will arrive I m going to have regular work and therefore regular money coming in which takes the ball and chain of worry away and also leaves me with 2 days a week soley for Milomade I ll also be getting out of the house and out of Kinghorn as my new job will have me commuting into Edinburgh by train and I m really looking forward to this as it s going to help me get a sense of myself back It s also a way for me to reconnect with a world I ve kind of had to leave behind for a

  • Bullet Journal Beginnings… | Milomade
    Not Your Average Mom and was intruiged I read on and discovered that it s the Analogue system for the digital age The Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organization system It can be your to do list sketchbook notebook and diary but most likely it will be all of the above It will teach you to do more with less Sounds pretty good huh I thought so I ve not kept a journal in years Pre parenthood I used to buy a weekly moleskine diary every year that had double page spreads with the days of the week on one side and the blank page for notes on the other and I d fill it with my to do lists week by week I d review at the end of each week and migrate any unfinished tasks to the next week I d plot birthdays holidays events etc and it went everywhere I did Then I had a baby went on maternity leave and as each day drifted into the next and I lost track of time and which day of the week it was I no longer found any point in keeping a journal as I had nothing to track had no lists to make as I wasn t working I m not really sure why I didn t get back to keeping a journal once I returned to work but I wish I had Now my days are spent juggling a million tasks and I m constantly feeling overwhelmed stressed and constantly running to keep up A week goes by and I question what have I accomplished achieved and I m disappointed with the answer I ve got lots of notebooks scattered about with lots of notes lists ideas and plans but as they re all disconnected I feel like my brain is constantly going off on tangents and I can t keep track of my life anymore So when I saw lovely images of lovely organised lists I couldn t resist finding out more The idea of a bullet journal really appeals to me right now but can I ever be organised like I used to be I wonder Will I be defeated by it quickly and give up Can my handwriting be that neat and legible again Who knows The only way to find out is to give it a go I guess so I ve taken the plunge and gone ahead and oradered a Leuchtturm1917 The simple fact that the pages are all numbered and I can have an index excites me my fetish for stationery is reaching a peak just thinking about it I m hoping I can cram into it all my goals and plans for 2016 and keep on track of all the things I want to do and achieve this year I m actually quite excited I ve been feeling really low lately and overhelmed by the year that lies ahead and the constant dreich weather hasn t helped
