Exciting News: Blog Redesign & Announcements

Just wanted to pop in with a few small announcements-
Branding and site design- rebranding and site design

The look and style of the blog will be changing with a blog redesign and a few new looks for branding.

This project has been in the works for a couple of months. Since we, my web designer and I are nearing the end with final details, I thought you might like a heads up and a sneak peek at the new blog style.

Don’t be scared. This new look is going to be much easier to navigate and so much prettier.

Back in December, I began implementing a few minor changes with colors of clickable links.

I also designed and ordered a couple of sets of business cards for each service that I offer. One is for event and interior decor. The other card is for faux finish and decorative paint clients.

Being a fan of thank you cards and notes of appreciation, I included my own beautifully designed cards to keep on-hand for special people.  I love the style of them so much. It was a relief to finally create a design that encompasses me so perfectly. Having a well-designed blog makes me happier than you can even imagine. It has been a burr in my side for far too long.

On the personal side of announcements, I’m saddened to tell you that major projects involving faux finishing and anything that requires repetitive arm motion or lifting, won’t be happening for quite some time.

I have a hitch in my giddy-up….

it involves a surgery on my neck.

My blog is going to be focusing more on light duty tasks revolving around home and event decor.

Maybe a few decorating guides for you? How does that sound?

 Anything that my scrawny Bobble Head neck can handle is now on my To Do List.

I’m totally open to your suggestions. Please leave me a comment telling me, “Yo….broke neck lady- Can you help a girl out and write a post about _____ or XYZ. I need advice or would like to learn about ______.”

Just tossing some ideas out here..architecture, historical design or the difference between faux finish and decorative paint? Do you want decorating guides? The skies the limit folks, as long as I’m confined to a sofa with a heat pack, I’m all yours for creating great guides. Ya’ll just have to tell me what you want and I will do it.

Can’t wait to see what you’ve done. I’m betting it will be wonderful. Best to you on your surgery and recovery. I have a chronic back problem that’s sometimes limiting, so I hope you’re returned to free motion and no pain. Brenda

Thank you, Brenda. The pain is obnoxious. I’m really hoping to be pain-free. That’s the one thing that I want most. I’m sorry to hear that you struggle with similar issues. 🙁

Thank you so much, Brenda. I’m hoping to be pain-free. That would be a luxury I’ve not experienced in many years.

Rebranding is always so exciting! Congratulations! I’m sorry you have to have surgery, but I hope everything is better in the long run. I think you have plenty of expertise to offer in the décor realm, maybe photography tips, paint, etc to offer, even sitting on a couch.
Blessings,
Cheryl

Hi Cheryl,
Thank you for the ideas. I’m not thrilled about the neck issue, but it’s been a long time coming. It’s time to do something different since the pain has grown much worse than it was in previous years. I will put your ideas down in my notebook.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy this nice weather we having.
