I can't stop editing the website! Since I posted with an update last night, I changed it again. I think it looks even better. The last thing I want to update later today is my retailers list; since the last time it was updated, I have added several new stores.
I was inspired today to make some quick changes to the site layout that I think really improve the functionality and ease of use. Before, I had all the shopping squeezed into the category "Shop Now!" which was awkward, especially since if you are on the site you probably want to buy something or at least look at it, and this was such a small link. Now I have it so you can "Shop by Product" with a drop-down menu for all the products (art prints, greeting cards, stuffed critters & pillows, postcards, original paintings) ORRRRR you can "Shop by Animal" with a drop-down menu for all the animals we are currently offering (alligators & crocodiles, cats, deer, dogs, ducks, dolphins, foxes, giraffes, moose, otters, pigs & boars, raccoons, sharks & whales, & squirrels). If you click right on "Shop by Product" you will be bought to a page with images/links for all the products, and if you click on "Shop by Animal" you will be brought to a page with images/links to all the different animals. If you click the big banner on the homepage, you will be brought to the "Shop by Product" page too. I think this is much more straightforward and easy to navigate.
As always, if anyone has any suggestions about this or anything else, feel free to share! It's always helpful to have several perspectives.
I just added an embedded instagram feed on the website, and I think it looks really great! Also, it has super updated posts of Pergamo Paper Goods at Crafts Shows, pictures of me, pictures of my studio, and pictures of Sophie that I don't always remember to put on the blog. Yay!
We can't make it to @animalcoalitionoftampa 's #pawsforacause in #seminoleheights #tampa tomorrow, but at least these prints are making it to the raffle. Good luck ACT, raise lots of $$$ and keep up the good work!!

Due to personal reasons, we are no longer able to attend Paws for a Cause this coming Saturday. This is a bummer, but if you were planning on going you should still go- there will be pet contests, dog grooming, doggie splash pools, rescued pets to adopt, ACT’s Wellness Waggin’, vendors, music, and food! There is also a raffle for items from Seminole Heights’ leading restaurants, bars and other independent businesses, where you will have a chance to win some Pergamo Paper Goods art prints! The proceeds go to the Animal Coalition of Tampa. Also, there will be other cool vendors there, such as Iamsonotcool Vintage and Printsicle, LLC.
The next event I will be at is the TBEC: Tampa Bay Etsy Crew Etsy Craft Party at the Coliseum in St. Pete on June 5, 6-10pm. See you there!
