A New Year and a New Look!

Happy New Year dear blog friends!! I pray that your year will be full of love and blessings and many pleasant surprises!

How do you like the new blog look (if you're reading this in a Reader, come on over and have a peek!)? I have been working on it for a while now, from about September last year, before I got sick and couldn't do much at all. The header up there I created from graphics designed by the wonderful Crystal Wilkerson. I love her designs for Echo Park and was thrilled when she converted her paper ranges to digi. For those who are familiar with Echo Park, you'll recognise the patterns and embellishments come from Sweet Summertime - possibly my favourite Echo Park range. The colours and patterns are just so fresh and playful! Oh, and if you want to check out Crystal's digi stuff, her shop can be found at Jessica Sprague. I also found this great grid background from DeviantArt. If you haven't been to DeviantArt before, go check it out, it's totally mind blowing!!!

Now, apart from the new graphics and having moved a few things around, you may have noticed some page tabs up there ^^^ underneath the header picture. They're mostly straight forward, but let me guide you around a bit:
  • About Me - no explanation needed really! Just go and have a read. :D

  • Tumbler - this is a link to what will be a repository of craft goodies that I find during my travels around the web. It's currently empty as I haven't had a chance yet to add anything, but I will be going back to add some wonderful finds in the next few weeks.

  • Guestbook - this is a great new feature I've added. If you want to make a general comment rather than one in relation to a post, please feel free to pop it in here. I look forward to hearing from you! :D

  • Blog Awards - The few awards I've been graciously given all have a home in the one spot now!
And that's it! Well, for the pages anyway. Go and have a play and see what you can find. :D


Monday Giggles will be back this year, starting from Monday, 3 January 2011. How exciting! Have you missed these as much as I have?!? I certainly could have done with a few laughs at the end of last year.

As for other posts, I can't promise I'll be posting much more this year, but hopefully if I'm not flat on my back and have a modicum of energy, I will be able to tell you more about what's going on around here and what I've been up to. Don't worry, you haven't missed out on much so far! But more about that later.

Right, well, that's pretty much it for the new blog. Come back tomorrow for some exciting news! :D  

*hugs*
