By Self

Mommy, Daddy, Lala, and a very fat goat at the zoo

Olivia's in the phase lately where she wants to do everything "by self."  In other words, she wants to do things by herself, without help.  I've been feeling much the same way for a long while.  About the ol' blog. 

My previous blog designer Nancy Jones did nothing but fantastic work for me.  I highly recommend hiring her yourself if you're looking for a blog facelift or if you need other graphic design work done.  She is absolutely wonderful.  Not to mention really nice. 

But--let's be honest--I can be a bit of a pest.  So instead of pestering her for the millionth time about some design changes I had in mind, I decided to finally bite the bullet, take the plunge, risk screwing up all the beautiful work Nancy had done, and try to change things myself.  By self.

And you know what?  It worked!  Well, sort of.  I'm not 100% finished updating things, but it's as much as I'm going to do tonight.  Partly because Bryan has very patiently been waiting for his turn on our sad, slow laptop.  And partly because I need to make some cute little lavender buttons to fill an order for the shop.  Whoo-hoo!

So, aside from the blues not quite matching and all the other little quirks (that I'll hopefully fix soon)... what do you think?

P.S. If you have problems finding stuff now or if links are broken or something, please send me an e-mail or leave me a comment.  Thanks everybody!

Well the mobile site looks great! Sorry I was not able to attack a new design sooner. I think you have accomplished something fabulous here, though. Way to go!
