Ch...Ch..Ch..Changes....A New Blog Design

Well, I guess you can kind of see what kind of changes have been going on around here. Yep, I finally made some changes to the blog.... a brand-spankin' new blog design...with a lot of help ;-)

For quite some time, I've been wanting to do something different with the blog, but didn't really know where to start and how much money to budget for it. Then, I won a giveaway for a free header on The Dedicated House after she had had her blog design revamped by the talented Rebekah of Rebekah Louise Designs. I just knew that winning the header giveaway was the push I needed to change things up. So, I contacted Rebekah and asked her to do a complete makeover on my blog, since she was already going to be doing the header.
I literally gave her these two pictures I had pinned, said I wanted some script and printing in the header and she went to town. Her first two designs were close to what I was wanting. Then, I just told her what I liked about the two designs and she changed it up to the header you see today.
Next, she said she needed a new profile picture and my "about me" blurb. This was the most painful part of the process because of my indecisiveness, and it's hard for me to get a picture of myself that I like well enough to put it out on the world wide web. So, I enlisted the help of my kids to take some pictures of me on Easter. Of course, I took a little time to "ham" it up.
Just to show you how badly I needed this update to the blog, here are the before screenshots...pretty sad.
After a whole bunch of emails back and forth (mostly due to my indecisiveness), she has come up with this beautiful design. I am absolutely thrilled and feel just like when you leave the beauty shop with a brand new hairstyle after feeling frumpy for a long time. Tell me I'm not the only one who waits too long between hair appointments ;-) Which reminds me, I need to call my hairdresser today!

Rebekah took my jumbled up thoughts and turned them into something beautiful. I am so grateful! If you're in need of a blog makeover, I highly recommend her. She was a breeze to work with and was so supportive throughout the whole process. Thank you, Rebekah!
