IHeartSwitch Gets a Makeover!

Starting today's website has a totally new look and interface. Why? Well, because we have so much to give, we needed a website that could hold it all!


What's changed, you ask?

- Fresher look! We went with an open design with less graphics so you can have and see all the information you need, like the latest projects and announcements just a click away.

- New Content! We will now cover a wider range of technological topics including beauty, home, life and style, and pop culture.

- Switch Craft Help! We are working feverishly to get the forums and new blog posts up to assist you with making the projects in Switch Craft. In the meantime please email us at book at iheartswitch dot com with any questions.

- New Bloggers! To keep up with this burgeoning content, we have added new contributors to help us give you the the best in fashion, design, craft, and lifestyle technologies. Our new bloggers include, Lauren Miller from Sephora, Taryn Zychal , and Fang-Yu Lin.

- Better Sharing! Now, you can share and bookmark your post on over 30 of your favorite sites such as Twitter, Facebook, delicious, and Bebo.
- Commenting Madness! Safe and secure commenting will allow you to be able to respond and converse with other Switch lovers.

- Search Feature! You can now use our search function all the posts, projects, and press releases from anywhere on the site.

- Everything in One Place! We've removed the newsletter sign up and contact form page. Instead, we encourage you to keep track of us through RSS feeds, make comments directly on the site,  or send us a note at hello at


What stayed the same?
- RSS Reader Link. You do not have to change the link in your content aggregator to keep up with the latest news feeds , the URL is still:

- Old content. You can still find all the old posts and videos you love at their previous web address.


What's to come?
- Online Forum. We are building a user Forum  so you can post your designs, share ideas, and get important information on materials and updates to IheartSwitch and SwitchCraft projects

- Guest bloggers. We have a line up of a guest bloggers from leading fashion technology and technology industries.

- New Projects! We have a line up of new projects to share that include a storytelling tea set and tips for making your Switch Craft projects even better.

Don't worry, if you can't wait another second go ahead and get your hands dirty with our lastest DIY: The Dreamy Lite Wall Art or get some love this Valentines Day with an interview with the maker of MyBeatingHeart.

Thank you so much for visiting and supporting As we continue to grow and improve the site please let us know if you see any issues or have any problems.

All our best!
