Tada! I have a new look!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  If you think things look a little different around here then you would be right.  I have been working with Kristen from Chalk and Apples Blog Design to give my blog a bit of a makeover.  Here is a a little peek at the before and after. I wish I had taken a screen shot of my previous design so I could show you the full change.   
I am so happy with the colours.  I was going for something bright, colourful and fun and I think that we achieved that perfectly.    I just love the pop of colour I have now.  I had designed my own blog and didn't have the time to devote to add all the little details I wanted.  I was so pleased with Kristen's service and flexibility.  She took care of the install and made some last minute changes as well, as it was all coming together.  I highly recommend her blog design services.

Now on to the fun part.  To celebrate my "makeover" I am throwing a giveaway.



Kristen has graciously donated a prize as well.  One lucky winner takes it all so be sure to complete all the entries to increase your chance of winning.  









Enter the Rafflecopter below for you chance to win.  The Giveaway runs from Sunday April 12 - Saturday, April 18th. 

Good Luck!

    1. Thank you. My advise would be to go for it. Anticipating the process was more stressful then actually completing it. Thanks for stopping by.
