Last week was a tough week - there was a lot going on at work and I was often up pass midnight updating the website. Emotionally, I didn't think I was too stressed, though now that I think about it I did eat a lot more candy cars than normal. Physically last week has caught up to me, and now I have the sniffles : (

I still plan to keep up with the updates for the rest of the week, I just might be a bit slower than I would wish.

I hope you find the website helpful, I'm always up for criticisms and recommendations.

I've been working on the website ...

I think it's looking better. My partner liked the rainbow colors inside the actual "portal," but I think it was too much, so I took it out. I'm still not totally happy with the colors of the side navigation bar, but it's a start.

Hello World!


Welcome to the blog for Handmade Portal, I've started Handmade Portal after opening at etsy shop, Podstrom, and noticing there were very few free websites where I could promote my products. I'll be regularly listing new submissions to the website on this blog. And, soon after the website goes live (early June), I hope to start interviews and "Thea's picks" (or similarly named), where I'll be posting products I especially like. There will also be advertising space available, but but "Thea's picks" won't be for sale.

Hope you'll check back again soon.
