Come See My Brand New Blog Design!


I am so thrilled to have my blog back…do you realize I haven’t posted anything since Friday???  I have missed blogging so much!  But, it was worth it, because now I have a brand new blog design!

So, notice anything different?  I’m sure you do…my fabulous friend Gwen at This Bold Girl  gave my blog a redesign and moved me to WordPress!  She is amazing!  She answered all my questions, made lots of suggestions, and made everything so smooth and easy…no sleep lost here :)

Please be patient with my while I figure all of this stuff out…I have lots to learn, like how to resize my photos, make a text link, and who knows what else, but no worries!  I am a pretty fast learner :)

Anyhoo…There are tons of new things to show you!  All of my social media buttons are still right up at the top, so if you want to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, or subscribe via email, all ya gotta do is click one of those little boxes…super easy.   I now have special tabs to direct you to some different projects in my navigation bar and lots of categories.  If you came here to find a certain project, all you have to do is type it in in the search area up there!

I’m sure you noticed that my posts are now truncated (only part of the post is visible) if you are on my HOME page.  There are two reasons for this…one… more posts are visible to newcomers, and two…it will help to keep other people from stealing my posts (yup, people actually do that, for shame).

In February, I’ll be opening up a shop right here on the blog…you will be able to shops without even leaving!!!  What is better than that?

I’ll be offering  lots of fun stuff like chalkboard labels, cut vinyl, some cute pillows, camera strap covers, party supplies, banners, and more…I’m so excited!

I hope you will take a minute and look around…and come back too, because I’ll be tweaking things and adding more…being on WordPress really will allow me to share more with you, and that is what makes me happy!

I hope you have a beautiful day…tomorrow I am doing my first contributor post for Jen at Tatertots and Jello, good things are happening friends, and it’s all because of you!

    You’re site looks great, what a clean easy to navigate site. Only suggestion is reduce your category list as it is pushing down some of your contributors and ads to the bottom. Most people won’t scroll through such a long list.
