Under Construction

Hello all!

Today is the day the new blog design will be uploaded, so things may look odd around here for awhile. Just wanted to give you a heads up!

The new design is very different from my current one – I’m warning you because if you’re like me and hate change it may take some getting used to. :) I totally understand that, we get used to something and it feels weird to see it look different after so long. It certainly will be weird for me. I just ask for your patience and courtesy, as we have worked really hard to get this done over the past few months.

The new design is fresher and much simpler and I’m really excited that the page will be more streamlined. Also, the screen will be wider so I can use bigger pics, which I’m thrilled about!

Sarah at Sweet Theory Designs has been so patient with me throughout this whole process! She does a great job and I hope you’ll check her out if you have any design needs.

As long as there’s no issues I’ll see you back here tomorrow! :)


  1. Good luck! Can't wait to see the new design.

  2. I can't wait to see it!! (although I am feeling a little nostalgic about the old design!!)

  3. Looks like the new page is live! Very pretty!!

  4. I like it!!! So much simpler and the wider view is great!!!

  5. Although you talked about it I got a nice surprise this morning! It reminds me of your before and afters with your house, with now being more light and fresh.

  6. I like the new page design, but the yellow headings are very hard to read til you hover over, maybe a darker color for them?

    1. I've adjusted that so they should be much easier to read now! Let me know!

    2. I'm also having some difficulty in seeing the yellow/gold lettering. But, it could be the monitor and my location. In my sunny kitchen, it is hard to read, but I moved the tablet to a darker room and it is clearer.

      There is also a difference between the bolded gold lettering (ie, your name listed above) and the letters which are not in bold. Obviously, to my older eyes, the bolded gold is easier to read.

      The new look is great - and I come here for the ideas. I can easily move my body to a darker room or make the font size larger.

      BTW - I swear in the old format, a second window was opened to read comments and I think I am in the same window now. Like that and I'm glad you have the navigation buttons to the next post at the bottom of the comment section.


    3. Yep much easier now ,thanks

  7. I love love love your new design! So clean and simple. It is a great look. Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Looks good! I knowingly clicked over to check out the new look this morning, yet for a moment, I thought I had clicked on the wrong site! Ha! Change is always good!

  9. I like the fresh new look, Sarah! It was a nice surprise to stop by today and see the changes you made. :)

  10. YAY!!! :) So excited for you!! I think updating the look of a blog is like redecorating a room! Love how it's looking. So fun!!


I LOVE your comments, thank you! (I read every single one.)
