Spring Cleaning

starcrossedsmile--Layout-Changes

Did you guys have a good weekend?  I hope so!  As you can see if you’re visiting this blog directly, I was a busy bee over the weekend and made a lot of changes around here!

I thought that the old blog needed some sprucing up and I basically spent all weekend coding and tweaking the changes until it looked just right.  Even my Etsy shop got a new look thanks to the amazing Nesha of  the blog Flower Child.  She masterfully designed my lovely new Etsy banner.  If you haven’t visited her blog before, you definitely should because the design is just gorgeous!  All the design changes on this blog were made by yours truly and I was going for a look that is simple, clean, and polished- I hope I achieved that! :)

I would so appreciate any feedback!  Tell me: What do you think of the new look?

Also, I’ve finally come out of the dark ages and created a Facebook Page for my blog!  I was holding out for so long, but I’ve decided its finally time for me to at least give it a try.  As it was when I first joined Twitter, I’m completely clueless  about how to use said page, but I’m going to figure it out!  If you’re also on Facebook, I would love it if you popped over to my page and said hello :)

  • The new layout is nice :) Quite simple yet not too busy :)

    • Thank you Kat, that’s just what I was aiming for! :)

  • I really like the new look – and have liked you on Facebook!

    • Thank so much for your kind words Jenn and for taking the time to pop over to my shop! :)

    • Thank you Amber! I think that’s a very nice compliment :)

  • Hi
    Nnenna ! i Love yogur new layout, it looks so clean and pretty(:
    Hopee you Have an awesome day!

    Ps. Please let me know when you get my letter, i think it should be there by now… :s

    • Thank you so much Carmila! I will let you know as soon as I get your letter, but it hasn’t arrived yet! Did you receive my letter?

  • I told you already, but I love this new look! I’m really into this nice shade of green…perfect touch! And the twitter bar down below is cute, too! Great work! Can’t wait to read more with your new look!!

    • Awe, thanks so much Melanie- its so nice to get the positive feedback! :D

  • I can’t believe you finally got a Facebook page! This is a cool new layout. I basically disappear for 24 hours whenever I have to do development.

    Also, we can’t be friends on Facebook. I’ve tried to friend you before and failed. I feel unloved.

    • I guess it was time, right? We’ll see how it goes! I tried to friend you as well and it wouldn’t let me! What gives, Facebook?!

  • I love the new blog design! Change is good :)

  • the new look is so crisp and clean; i like it Nnenna! did you get that Target dress we talked about on Twitter? I’m so happy you and my readers are taking a liking to my sewing, haha. the last time i sewed anything “real”, i was 16 and it was a gown for the Cinderella play i was working for. im so happy to be getting into sewing again. anywayyyy. how are you!? hope all is well! hope you are getting some of these sun rays we’re getting in California, too! muah!

    love, james

    • Thanks so much Jamie! I did end up finding that Target dress :) A lovely lady on Facebook found it in her local store and bought it for me- so sweet of her!

      Oh absolutely! I’ve always wanted to improve my sewing skills, but I don’t have access to a sewing machine anymore and haven’t had the time to look into it further. But seeing your wonderful projects makes me want to try again!

      I’m doing well and I hope you are too! Thanks for sending those rays of sun, today is beautiful! :D

      xx Nnenna
