TIME FOR A CHANGE

Well, I decided it was time for a little change around here. While I absolutely LOVED my previous blogskin designed by Darlene, I decided I wanted to update my look. A copy of Darlene's blogskin has been saved, in case I should ever want to use it again.

But, let me introduce my new blogskin designer. Her name is Susie, and she is a JOY to work with. She answered my endless questions, and she "tweaked" a few things to personalize the image I had chosen. Susie's website can be found at www.susiepie.com - so head on over there and say "hi". Her blog design website can be found at www.bluebirdblogs.com . Her prices are very reasonable, and her professionalism and talent are AWESOME!

In case you can't tell, the women in the above image are DQ, TP, and ME! I love how young I look! There should be more wrinkles and crow's feet on my face, but hey, I am not complaining.

So, let me know what you think of the "new me!"

I love the new design. It captures who you are right off the bat. When I originally met you, I didn't even know what you looked like, now look at you with this absolutely amazing website--I can see you in real life and cartoon :). It reflects you well!
Good job to Susie.

Wow - that's all I can say.

Crows feet or not - God sees your beauty anyway......

Hi Darlene: Thanks so much for all of your compliments!

Hi Ukok: You've changed your site, too! It must be that time of year. . .

Dear Barbara - "Twigged" - now that's a new word for me! If you want a new design, Susie is the one to contact - she's great!

I really love it, too although the light pink color of the text is a little tough on my bifocal eyes. Maybe another shade deeper would help? Or is it just my monitor?

I LOVE that DQ and TP are up there with you now!

Great skin! Oh, and I love your blog update to ;)

Yes, the text needs to be a couple of shades darker because I can barely read it. Just a suggestion.

Woo-oo!

I love your new look! It's so very pretty and feminine, just like you! I pray God continues to bless your writing and new look. Have a great week.

I love ya,

Hi Valerie! I love what you've done with the place:-) Very pretty. I'm just taking a much needed break from sanding the kitchen walls....this isn't really 'vacation'--just vacation from writing/blogging, I guess. I'd rather go to the beach, like you commented on my blog...LOL...

Oh, but I did want to mention that the text in this particular post of yours is very light and hard for me to read...in case you want to adjust it. Of course, I'm half blind, so most things are hard for me to read:-)

It's so...pink.

Very feminine and very classy. Like its hostess.

AHHHHHHH!!! I LOVE IT!!! It's like buying a new cocktail dress, with shoes and a purse!!!

Just passing on the message that Susan at Celedon Pool http://www.susansharpeceramics.co.uk/blog
/ loves your new design..she can't comment as she does not have a blogger account. I did mention to her that she can sign up with blogger and not "blog"..
but she wanted you to know that she reads you and loves the new look

Have to wait 'til I get home to enjoy the full effect (our Internet filters at work block out a lot of images, so I don't see your header image); but I like the updated color scheme. Very nice.

Yep......nice new look!! It suits you! There is a definite market out there for "blogger bling" and I can see why. I remain blingless for the time being though.

I've been here like three times and keep forgetting to leave a comment- but that means I likey!
