meaningful design that represents you

Are you looking for a website that feels like you?

…not a smarmy salesman, but authentically you? 
Want to reach your audience with a beautiful website that tells your story? 

Ready for a website, but worried that it will take too much time, not only to create, but to maintain?  You don’t have extra time laying around, twiddling it’s thumbs.  And for goodness sakes, if you did, that’s not how you would use it.

Feeling overwhelmed with all of the directions your attention is being pulled
Ready to honor your time and your skills by hiring out the bits that drain you?

I know how hard it is to be a business owner...

I mean, yes, you can do it ALL yourself (now it’s easier than ever) but it takes time.  Valuable time.   And setting up all the components…hosting, domain, installing platform, themes, communication providers, etc…is daunting. 

Maybe you’ve already spent precious time creating a website and are frustrated that you can’t get it just like you want it or that it’s not quite a reflection of you.  Perhaps it doesn’t function easily or intuitively.

Maybe you have no interest in more hours spent in front of you computer, learning a new “language” and fiddling and tweaking and second guessing.

Ready for some help?

When you’re ready to invest in your business and honor your time, I’m here to partner with you.   I’ll do what I do best, so you can do what you do best. 

What I do best is help bring your vision to life (even if you’re not sure what you vision is yet), create synergy in your site so that it’s greater than the sum of it’s parts and give you breathing room.   

Want to do updates on your own?  No problem.  I can train you on your website and be there if you need help.  

Maybe you’re thinking, “yeah, but I worked so hard on my site and it’s pretty good…it just needs a little help”.   Maybe it needs some tweaks, a bit of coding here or there, some expertise on the best plug ins and how to set up your opt-in, a few graphics to make it pop.  A little refiningI can do that too.

Digitizing Sewing Patterns

From one pattern drafter to another.

Let me take your sewing patterns and turn them into professional, multi-sized PDFs.

That instruction book...I can do that to.

What you can Expect

  1. Begin with a free, 30 minute call to see if we’re a good fit and determine what your needs are.

  2. Schedule a time to begin working on your project.   Considering my next availability and your deadline needs.  (I only have two spaces left in June!)

  3. Pay the Deposit – 50% of the projected project cost.

  4. Do your homework, before I begin working on your project.  Don’t worry, I’ll tell you exactly what I need. You’ll get my step-by-step questionnaire (for websites), which walks you through defining your website and determines what you need to provide me, or for other projects,  some bit of homework from our call.

  5. I’ll provide you with some mock-up ideas for your project to be sure we’re speaking the same language.

  6. You’ll approve the final project with up to 2 revisions. (feel free to revise it more, but they may not be covered in our cost projections or your time slot)

  7. Final payment on the project and I hand over the keys
    For a website, I will send you all of the passwords and links that are involved in your site.  Such as your WordPress account, hosting company,  mail server and payment collector, etc.   In a nice, neat little package. I’ll include some simple ways to update the content on your site too.   For a graphic project, I’ll send your project in a print or web ready file format.

  8. If you want to update your site yourself (and I recommend you do) and want know how in a clear and concise manner…then schedule a WordPress Training, for an additional hourly fee.

  9. Maybe you want me to handle revisions and updates on your website…we can plan for that too.  I offer monthly maintenance packages
