Welcome! Welcome, Welcome!!!

Welcome to the new I HAVE A NOTION  Digs!!!

Around the end of April… I discovered that there was a cap on the bandwidth, unbeknownst to me.  Of all the things I didn’t know; that one was the most frustrating. So I made the decision that if I was going to have to pay more… (new host, new format, new platform) then I was going to be more modern too.

If you have regularly visited the I Have a Notion blog, then you know that there have been some attempts at liquidating some of the original stock that came with the name. I had been hoping it would go on its own… but I am giving it one last push.. on the Clearance Page. Take a look might be something you didn’t know you needed, wanted, might use!!!

So the old blog at www.ihaveanotion.blogspot.com will still be live for a little while. Some of the articles, tutorials, and maybe even some post revisits… might happen. There is still much to be done over here.

To help CELEBRATE… there are PRIZES… books, thread, tools, toys, etc… to GIVE AWAY!

(and just a little sharing here… had planned to use Rafflecopter… but they don’t work with WordPress, BOO!)

So Plan B…. We’ll start today with a book, a toy and a tool. Winners will be randomly drawn and announced on Wednesday August 1st, 7 pm, from the comments left on this blog post. Please share with your friends, family, community. Want more opportunities, find ihaveanotion on Facebook and #ihaveanotion on Instagram… there will some games over there too.

Please let me know if you come across something revolutionary!!! quiltnotions@gmail.com

In the meantime… take a look around!

  1. Congratulations on the new site! I love how open it feels, and really like your color choices and the way they coordinate with your elephant logo. It is very welcoming and very refreshing.

    1. Thanks!! I think that was the easy (and most fun) part. I hope it is easier to shop as well.

      Really appreciate your comment and stopping by.

      1. I tried to comment but I couldn’t for some reason. It may be because I am on an iPad. Anyway the site looks great – new and fresh! One booboo I found was on the Collins pin page. You say thing but I think you meant thin. I’ll keep looking around – I used to be a proofreader. Congratulations on the new site!

  2. Very nice, your time has been well spent!

    1. Thanks Cheryl! I hope so! I was fun and Frustrating… and not in equal measure! Beth

  3. Beth , I commented and it wouldn’t post because it said my email was not posted, it was. Redid that and posted again and it said I had to leave a comment which I had already done but I erased and did it again and you can see that it posted twice even though it said I had errors in my post. Maybe my fault but I just followed the prompts that I was given.

    1. I’m trying to get your quiver pattern. Every time I go to place the order, I get a message that says I have not chosen a delivery method. I have correctly entered my mailing address. There is no option to choose for delivery method so I cannot finish my order.

      1. Sorry Sandi.. problem was on my end…. so MUCH to learn… I think I have it fixed. Give it a try again! Beth

  4. Wow – everything looks great. I have more searching to do but I did find a wrong word on the Collins pin page. You say thing but I think you meant thin. I’ll keep looking around. I used to be a proofreader. Congratulations on the new site!

    1. Thanks…So glad you stopped by! I need a proofreader because my fingers sometimes type words…. on their own. Something about muscle memory…. or just inattention… or maybe just tired. I will make the correction…. Thanks again!

  5. I can’t imagine what a giant undertaking it must be to set up a new site. Way beyond my expertise! I’ve done a bit of browsing though, and it seems clear and easy to navigate. It’s neat and uncluttered, which I appreciate. And the elephant is super cute.

    1. Lisa it was huge…. I can’t tell you how many times I wondered if I was crazy!!! Hopefully things will get easier… and smoother and a little busier! I am having fun today though!

      Thanks for stopping in and checking out the hoopla! Beth

  6. Congrats Beth!!!!! The site looks awesome! Closer to the end of the month I may need your expertise, if you’re willing?
    Vonnie ?

    1. Vonnie THANKS! I take it you mean the end of August???? Let me know and we can always talk about it….and I will help if I can.

      Beth

  7. It is very different which I’m sure is a good thing….out with the old and in with the new….times change. The elephant is great….I do love elephants 🙂 Wishing you nothing but the best of success with your new platform.
    Smiles,
    Kelly

    1. Thanks Sweetie!!! It was not so much out with the old/in with new… as much as I couldn’t get the other site to behave! Not that this has been easy!!
      Come and visit. Beth

  8. I found you. Your comment on my blog takes me to somewhere unattended. Maybe an old signature. Good job here. Like the elephant. Have you read “Leaving Time”? I am listening and keep falling asleep at the best parts. So I haven’t finished it yet. About Elephants. Sort of.

  9. Thank you so much Beth for the Quiver pattern! Had a wonderful time “window” shopping and there are the side threading needles I have been coveting! Thanks so much for getting to it so quickly.
    it’s been a pleasure!!!

    1. The pleasure has been all mine!!! and thank you for shopping with I Have a Notion. Look forward to serving you again!!!
