Brief Overview

A small side project I work on in my spare time, my wife's parents create their own leather goods and sell them online. They wanted a small simple homepage where they can manage and upload information about their latest creations and write a blog about their leatherworks life. I also use it as a sandbox platform to play around with some new technologies and for when I want to create a new gem and test it out on a simple but usable system.
