Looks like the Easter Bunny came early to my house and delivered this BRAND NEW Blog design!
I’ve been so excited to unveil my new blog design!!!  Earlier this year, I took a blog design course, Your Darling Blog, offered by the wonderful Jo Klima of August Empress.  Her class was instrumental in helping me create a vision and brand for the blog.  And recently, I’ve been working with the extremely talented, super sweet, and creative Katrina Tan of Pugly Pixel to turn my creation into a reality!  THANK YOU KATRINA!  She has been EXCELLENT to work with and extremely patient with all my questions.  If you’ve never visited her blog, then you are missing out on awesome blog tutorials, graphics, photos, inspirations, and so much more!  Trust me on this.

Aren’t the colors beautiful?  I can say this because I didn’t come up with the color scheme.  It’s actually a modification of Katrina’s Colour Lover post inspired from 10 Magazine.  I changed the yellow to gold glitter naturally!

My header was inspired by a Vogue magazine cover.  Can you tell?

And please check out some of the new features of my navigation bar.  I made a new About Me/FAQ page and have a shop to find new homes for some things in my overflowing closet.  I’ll be adding more items soon.

I thought it would be fun to take you on a trip down SOS memory lane.  It was just yesterday that the blog looked like this….

And last year, it looked like this…

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!! We are going to spend time with Mr. S’s family on Sunday for Easter!

  7. Dear Sam,

    Thank you for your sweet note and your well wishes. You are very thoughtful.

    I love the new look of your page. And may I just say you look amazing in the recent CLASSIC photo of black, white and pearls. Very prettily assembled together.

    Also, thank you for your advice on the domain. I need to research more in due course but haven’t quite found the time.

    Happy Easter to you and your family! Once again, congratulations on your new look.
