I want to invite everyone to visit my blog and see the new look. If you are like me you don't visit each blog you follow regularly. You read the posts in a reader. The down side of that is that you don't get to see all the pretties.
I was doing the blog walk one day,
that's what I call it when I am on a blog and see a link to a blog that sounds interesting and follow a link on that blog that sounds interesting.... well, you get the idea.
I noticed that a few of the blogs looked real good and they were made by the same designer. So I contacted her and this new look is the result. I will be posting an interview with her when I post this.
I like my new look because I get to have the things I love to see everywhere. The bracelet is an epilepsy awareness bracelet called the "Mandiye" that I designed for a good friend. The white cat is Mi Dulcie Corazon, we just called her Dulcie. Isn't that a pretty heart on her side. The other 2 cats are the girls I have now, both are her children. Spaz, the gray, is the only survivor of Dulcie's first litter. Smokie, the black, is from the next litter. My step-son adopted her but he made the mistake of leaving her with me when he went on vacation. I wouldn't give her back.
This new design also brings a cohesiveness to my "branding". I am using the same header as a banner in my Etsy shops, Cheryls Purple Cow and My Extra Beads and on my Facebook shop. Click on the links to see each one.
I also added a "Grab" button. Please grab my button to post on your blog and if I don't already have yours on my blog, let me know so I can get it.
I also consolidated the tutorials and put the list on a separate page. Just click on the "Tutorials" to see the list.
I think that I covered the major changes. Let me know what you think in the comments. If you have done a recent redesign, and I know at least 2 or you who have, please leave your link in the comments so we can all come and admire yours too.
