Hi there! Only been selling/designing my shirts for a couple months, and have gotten some very complimentary feedback, but haven't sold a lot yet. Looking into purchasing shirts in bulk, and selling them at local craft/art fairs, in addition to selling online.

Any feedback and/or comments are welcome! Thanks in advance!

I think your website looks great. I was a little surprised at how many links there are on the left side but I guess it's not a bad thing. And maybe if I'm nitpicking, I would have a bit less intro text because when I loaded the site, none of the designs showed. If some of the designs showed at the very beginning it would give people what they were looking for right away. Maybe you could rename the "about me" page to "about" and put the text on the homepage there as well as the information you already have. Anyway that's pretty small. I think you're on the right track! Good luck!

I second Athena's note about putting some of the designs at the top of the page. Maybe you could have a space at the top with your three most popular designs. Generally I'm the type of person who wants to see pictures before I invest in the time to read your story.

Also, the links on the left are a little confusing. The "Read This" page appears to be a blog, but it's not that obvious. If I was looking for the blog, I wouldn't think to click there.

I definitely like what you've got there, though. Very cool!

I sew, crochet, bead, make natural toys for kitties, and so much more.

Looks great, and I concur with what the others are saying about the text. Perhaps you could try a slideshow of featured designs with one of the slides being a (much briefer than now) explanation of your design focus. See if you can turn your description into a snappy catchphrase. Eg thinkgeek: stuff for smart masses. Onehorseshy: we pander to everyone.

The product page is great. though I dithered for a bit working what I clicked to buy a shirt. Commands work better for getting people to click than passive words. Make your own shirt is good, but perhaps the other could be "Buy it ready made" or similar.

You might consider too moving the "discount on shipping" add up above the red bar and moving the social media icons across to the right, so the product could be closer to the top. I imagine as a designer you have a big screen, but you have to consider people using smaller screens and mobile devices (if you're not doing a custom mobile version).

But great work. You site design meshes really well with your product designs.

Also, I only just realised when I went back to look at the site, that those buttons actually did anything. They reloaded completely below the fold.
