I know still have A LOT of work to do on it, but...  
...for some strange reason I was really in the mood to redesign Kevin's site tonight (it surprised me more than anyone, actually) ;). I blame it entirely on a book from Borders I just purchased today about the use of color in websites. :) Lots of things still need work, but I've uploaded preliminary shells of two pages that I've completed tonight. The index image really needs to be saved again at a higher resolution and I still can't figure out what to do with the home page text, but I wanted to ask everyone's opinion before I get ready to send the preliminary links to Kevin for his approval.

Here's the link, if anyone is interested:
VERY preliminary pages I worked on tonight

Basically, it's only two pages, the index and home pages (the links on the home page don't go anywhere yet, but clicking "Enter" on the index will get you to the home page.) I'd appreciate any opinions you may have on it, whether it looks too busy with the background image, and what I could possibly do to break up the text on the home page (the borders for the tables below the updates look awful and I'm very open to suggestions on changing it.) :)

Thanks so much in advance! :)

I always love the work you do on the websites. :) They'are always so nice. Now I can appreciate how involved it is to make a website. The one I am working on is so not in the same league as yours. ;)

I don't think I ever realized how much work was involved in constructing a website either, until I started working on them. :P Thanks for your sweet comments, I'm still trying to find a way to manage all the text I need at the bottom without it running into each other, or looking too boxy like it does now. :( I think I'll mull that over today and try to fix it tonight. I'm really looking forward to seeing your website when it's complete! :)

Thanks so much for taking a look! :)

I think yours looks great!! :) Maybe one day I'll be better at doing them.

(I posted mine up in my journal even though it's not totally finished and I am still trying to work out a few problems.)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 7th, 2005 07:13 am (UTC)
I saw!! That must've taken a lot of time! The site is very comprehensive and like I said in your journal, I love the soothing feeling of the whole page, makes me want to go there. :)

I really like it! Especially the home page with all the information. It's different, and I like that!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 6th, 2005 05:57 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for taking a look, Gill! I can't seem to get out of my rutt of the same layout on the home page, though. :( I'll have to think about that and try a few things tonight. :) Thanks for your comments. :)

*Drools* Sheri you're AMAZING!

When I'm on Broadway, YOU are making my site. I will pay you millions of dollars.

I deem you the web site goddess.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 6th, 2005 06:00 pm (UTC)
Awww, Meredyth - you are just the sweetest! :) Thanks so much for taking a look at it (and for your sweet, sweet comments) :) - it needs A LOT of work, but I'm really happy that I've decided to do something different with it. :) Hopefully Kevin will like it. :) Big *HUGS* to you! :D

Hey your a web site goddess, thats just awesome!

Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 6th, 2005 06:04 pm (UTC)
Haha! I think I really need suggestions on managing my text blocks on the title page - I think I'll have to work on that tonight. :P

I think it looks great, Sheri! I like the new colour!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 6th, 2005 06:07 pm (UTC)
Thanks for taking a look, Karen! :) I'm still having so much trouble getting out of the same layout rutt that I always have with my sites. :( Hopefully an idea will hit me today. :) Thanks so much for your comments. :)

I love the black-and-gold color scheme. Very classy!

And I repeat -- these guys should be paying you (in comp tickets, if nothing else).

Re: Gorgeous!
Awww, Linda! Thanks for taking a look at it and thanks so much for your sweet comments! :) Since Kevin's gone back to using his old headshot (which I really like), I thought I should update the look of his site. I hope he likes it. :)

...in comp tickets, if nothing else

Haha! Maybe you could put a bug in his ear the next time you see him. ;) I'm totally kidding of course, :) I love working on his site and the more exposure he gets, the happier I am. :D

I know you want some helpful feedback, but really, you don't need it at all. It looks beautiful!!! Very classy. I think this is the best work you have done honestly (not that the rest of the stuff you've worked on isn't nice because it is :])!!! If I were Kevin, I'd want this to be my official site. :D Great work and keep it up.
Sheri: Sheri & Kevinshutterbug93 on November 7th, 2005 07:15 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks Carrie. :) I fixed it up a little and just emailed the link to Kevin, hopefully he'll like it. :) Thanks for your sweet comments.

I only can repeat what everybody already said - it looks great. It's also this one what I like most. :)

Thanks for taking a look, Sabine. :) I've fixed it up a little and I just emailed the link to Kevin - hopefully he'll like it. :) Thanks for your nice comments. :D

I'm sure he'll LOVE them!

I have to echo what everyone else is saying... GREAT look!

Awww, thanks so much, Laura! :) Thanks for taking a look at them. :D

It looks great! I wish I could get my Idina site to look that good and to get people interested in it.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 9th, 2005 08:25 am (UTC)
I saw your Idina site and I love it! I really like the colors and I love the header graphics! :D Any idea if she's seen the site?
defygravity73 on November 9th, 2005 03:23 pm (UTC)
Aww... Thanks! I have a long way to go to make a site as good as yours, but it's been a fun learning experience. I doubt she's seen it. If she has, I'm on some kind of "to watch" list because I truthfully wrote about my experiences with her. LOL!

I meant to tell you the other day that I just love what you've done with the new look on Kevin's site -- very sophisticated and I just love the more with it look! Not that the old wasn't hip but the new is just more hip.
Sheri: Kevin 2003 headshotshutterbug93 on November 9th, 2005 08:27 am (UTC)
Awwww, thanks Rita! :) That's so sweet of you to say! :) I was really unhappy with my last re-design and I really wanted something different. Of course, I'm rather afraid of change in some respects so it was rather scary to see what Kevin thought about this. Thankfully he's okay with it. :) Woo! :) Thanks so much for taking a look. :)
