A NEW LOOK AND GOOD HOUSEKEEPING


Surprise!  Notice anything different?  The blog got a little makeover,  I figured after 2 years it was time!  

In the past I've done all of the work on my page myself.  I got it done, but it took FOREVER to figure out, and it just wasn't that fun.  So, I went in search of an affordable blog designer and found Rebekah Louise Designs.  She was able to work me in quickly, and responded to everything in a very timely manner.  She was fantastic to work with and did a great job making my sketchy design ideas into a reality.  And, she was extremely patient and professional as I picked at every little detail.  If you're interested in a Blogger custom design, go visit Rebekah Louise Designs today!

I hope you like it...I really do!  I'm still working out some glitches, adding some pages and links and making minor adjustments, but hopefully everything will be running smoothly soon!

In other news, unbelievably lightning struck twice around here.  Last month I shared with you my feature in Ladies' Home Journal.  I guess when it rains it pours, because this month I'm honored to be in Good Housekeeping.  GOOD HOUSEKEEPING!  The magazine that my mom has subscribed to for years and years and that I used to sit on the sofa and read when I was a little girl (still do, as a matter of fact!).  My favorite columns when I was little were always Hints From Heloise and Peggy Post's Etiquette Column- I guess those homemaking interests started early!

Anyway, I was thrilled to be contacted by an editor that had seen a photo on Pinterest of my drawer pull chalk holders.  They published it in the October issue as part of their readers' feature page.




Thank you to Kathleen and the staff at Good Housekeeping for including me!    

Finally, guess what?  I'm f.i.n.i.s.h.e.d. with my dining room!  Show you tomorrow!!

  19. I love your new look Jennifer! And how fun that the accent color is green - so you :)
    I've always done all my blog design and upkeep too - till just last week. I hired someone to do some of the things I wanted done but wasn't figuring out and didn't have time for. While I'd always thought I couldn't give up control it felt so good to hand it over and let someone who knew exactly what to do get in there and get it done!!
