I know many of you have been wanting to see my website for some time, and I am glad to tell you I am making swift progress! I thought it may be beneficial for you to know some key features of this website.
1. This website is a collaboration of my own collection AND other items.
Many people have been discussing on the Sylvanian Families Forum for many years about there being no full encyclopaedia of knowledge on Sylvanian Families and Calico Critters products, and whilst I know the forum is working to produce an online resource, as I wish to display my own collection I thought I could go a step further and add promotional images and photos of others' photos in the 'Collection Gallery'. I have permission from three other collectors to use photos of their items where there are gaps in my collection and their details shall be linked to every photo of theirs' I use. I shall be contacting other people as and when I add certain pages to my website as I know some people have rare sets that no one else seems to be able to find.
2. All items I own shall be pictured, whilst photos from other collectors will only be used if I do not have an item or the item is incomplete.
Here is an example (left) of how my figures shall be pictured, although I am going to retake the few photos I have taken using better lighting.
Images of buildings I own are not going to be the most professional looking photos I will admit, so I shall attach links to other websites beside my images.
3. I am hoping to finally finish my initial photography of my collection by September 2016 and have my full website complete with my collection's photos by December 2016! I shall keep everyone updated on how things are going - I am currently planning to start taking photos some point during the next 3 or 4 weeks!
