New Year, New Look!

A little over a year ago, our little corner of the internet got a facelift...and while it was enough to make this little bloggie feel fresh and pretty for a while, it was soon itching for another round of nips and tucks. Because while I loved the simplicity of our design, it didn't exactly feel like "us".

I wouldn't go so far to call it "Old and Busted", but...

So I set about performing an overhaul. Mercifully, this round didn't include (a ton of) html coding...I focused on the color scheme, font styles, and overall look, rather than the technical ins and outs of it all. My goal was to blend our styles and have the design reflect our personalities a bit more (some brighter colors, whimsical details, and little personal nods- like "stitching" borders for my fashion background, and graph paper for my math loving husband).

Here's a shot of the work-in-progress:

And a little bit further down the road.....

And now the finished product!

In addition to the new header, sidebar buttons, and pics, we've also added an "about us" page, as well as a link for new visitors. I'm still fiddling around with it a little, but so far....I'm smitten. And hopefully the new look will lead to even more fresh content, and fun posts: Because everyone knows, if you get a cute new party dress, you have to show it off!

I hope you love it as much as I do...let me know if you find any major glitches or problems! (Oh- And if you've viewing this in a reader, please click through and see what all the fuss is about!)
