Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter

I’ve been working with HKWS for 5 years and, originally came on board to help them with management and maintenance of their original website.

I re-designed and rebuilt the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter site early in 2022 and, it is still based on the WordPress platform using the Divi Theme/Page Builder.

The Retreat At Amryhouse

The Owners of this lovely Bed and Breakfast in the Macedon Ranges in Victoria, Australia, approached me with some simple fixes for their existing site, but after an investigation and some discussion, they decided to forge ahead with a re-think, a re-design and a rebuild in order to achieve a more professional look and functionality!

The Retreat At Amryhouse website was re-imagined by me, with lots of input from the Owners. I rebuilt the site based on the WordPress platfrom and substituted a very basic theme with “Kadence” and, a host of plugins related to the styling and operation of the site.

About The Retreat At Amryhouse

Located in the heart of Ashbourne, ‘The Retreat’ at Amryhouse is a self contained, beautifully appointed, luxury Victorian Miners Cottage, built to capture the style of yesteryear. It offers private Bed and Breakfast accommodation for two people in the heart of the beautiful Macedon Ranges.

Women’s Community Shelters eCards

I have been working with Women’s Community Shelters for almost 5 years, at first maintaining their original WordPress website, which has since undergone an update and, prior to last Christmas, developing and building their eCard site.

The eCards system allows visitors to make a donation to the shelter organisation on behalf of a loved one, while simultaneously sending that recipient an email-delivered card (eCard). The cards can be for special occasions such as a Birthday or, simply as a thank you. The site has seasonal cards which are rotated at various times throughout the year, celebrating Mother’s and Father’s Days, as well as Easter and Christmas. PayPal is the integrated payment method for the eCards.

About WCS

Women’s Community Shelters works with communities to establish new shelters, which provide short term emergency accommodation and support in a safe environment that enables homeless women to rebuild self-esteem and achieve control and fulfilment of their lives. The eCard site allows the organisation to collect donations with a difference!

Bamboo Creations Nursery Victoria

The Owners of the Nursery approached me after I purchased some plants for my garden, as they knew I was a Riddells Creek local, in fact just around the corner from them and their amazing Bamboo Nursery!!

Their old website was looking a bit tired, even though it was still functioning well, but they wanted to add features and give it all a bit of a spruce-up. So began a long journey to arrive at an all-new website, built on the flexible and reliable WordPress platform, with an online store selling Bamboo Plants and Bamboo Clothing, the clothing being dropshipped from a manufacturer in Queensland.

About BCV

Bamboo Creations is the largest Bamboo Nursery in Victoria, with over 45 species of Bamboo Plants, including Ornamental and Running Bamboos, as well as Rare Species.
