New Blog Button

I want to point you all to my new blog button over in the sidebar. As you know, Liz has been home dealing with her medical condition and subsequent issues. She has always enjoyed learning, so just sitting around the house has been hard on her. Over the past couple of months she has been finding online tutorials to learn various aspects of computers and computer programs. She has been enjoying playing around with them, but she was getting bored, since she had nothing to practice in real life.

I have been contemplating having a button designed for the blog. I think they are a fun addition and felt like I was missing out not having one. So I asked Liz if she could come up with one for me. Over the course of a couple of days she played around with the graphic and developed a couple of prototypes. After looking though them all, we settled on the one you now see.

I invite you to grab the button for your blog.

New Look

I hope you all are enjoying my new blog look. I have been wanting to do a jungle theme for a while but couldn’t figure it out. Another blog I read, had recently had a facelift from Michelle at over at Shabby Creations.

Michelle was wonderful to work with, even though my concept was outside her usual design focus of a Victorian or vintage feel. By the way those designs are wonderful, it just wasn’t what I was looking for here.

She came up with the concept of the animals for the children. My crew loved it! We even did some swap outs to get everyone’s favorite animal in. And the best part, she did this all in about 2 days. How awesome was that?!

Thanks Michelle for putting up with me and my zoo!
