To start off, once again another webs.com site...
The site takes way too long to load! I'm on a 20mb/s connection and the site takes 5-7 secs to load! That is way way too long for my connection speed (just like all of the webs.com sites)!
The colour's go well together however there is a lack of content except for an intro video and a few widgets like members area.
The video's are amateur and too made up on the spot and a little damn what was my line!?
Store - Why have a store if there are no members on the site... I would wait until you have more viewers and / or members so you don't waste the max 20 pages you get on webs.com and so people think ooooo it's new what do they sell?
Video's - The videos are a little too fake some times!

Hi, I'm Anouska and I'll be reviewing your site using Firefox and a 1440x900 screen resolution. I hope this review is helpful to you!
There's an annoying ad at the top of the page. I suppose you can't change this as your site is hosted on freewebs, but there are free hosts that don't automatically add ads or even require ads, such as http://www.awardspace.com.
The site looks quite boring, and the header image has an obvious cut across brushes used (I think it's brushes anyway), making it look a bit weird on the background.
As said, the header image has an obvious border between the header and the general background. The font you used is also boring, and you could quite easily make a different header image with just the text in a better font with a transparent background so the general background will just go on behind the header so there's no border on the header.
While using only blue and white is a fairly safe choice, it could look so much nicer with just a dash of any other colour.
You use quite a bit of make-up in your actual html coding. Try dividing your content from the design. Both coding and design will be much easier to edit if they're apart from eachother.
You have a nice amount of content and it's well organized. I have nothing to comment here.
While you have a nice amount of content that's well organized, your site could do with some changes in the design. Especially the header image could be better either by using a different font and a transparent background, or a totally different banner.

The difference between the header and the border was intentional! I thought it looked pretty nifty but I guess not...
As for the font, I chose that font because next to Bodoni MT Condensed, its the most representative of the look of the series. Unfortunately, Bodoni isn't available on the sitebuilding tool I use :-(
I'm glad you like the content though, that seems to be getting thumbs up from everyone :-)

Let me just say, This is the most awesome freewebs site in the whole universe. (Just say'in :D)
Freewebs was very annoying to me... Maybe it didn't like me cause this is very impressive!
This is so addicting! The first episode rocks! :D
I like the posters! Very creative.
Overall, your doing great where you are now! I would recommend signing up for your own domain or co.nr

Thank you! Very kind words :D
And I was toying with the idea of registering www.things-and-stuff.co.uk, but since I have several different projects, I'm thinking it might be better to register www.daffadillies.co.uk, then I can have www.daffadillies.co.uk/things-and-stuff.

First Impression 2/3
The first thing I saw on your website, is the advertisement. =/ I understand that this site is coming from a webs.com, so if possible, try move the advertisement to some place less distracting? If not, its okay. The background and table background is the same. :( Try making them different. May I suggest a dark background instead?
Your Things & Stuffs header. It's too plain. The font choice is bad. Try using a banner or some better font.
I don't like the buttons you have, try keeping them simple or just use their respective logo as the buttons.
The contents are organized. Nothing to comment here.
Need more work on your layout. Try looking around similar website for inspiration.
