Cha-cha-changes...

If you have been a reader of my blog for some time now you know that I like to change things up once in a while. Maybe it's a sign I suffer from ADD. Maybe it's because I can't leave well enough alone. Maybe it's because I have never been truly happy with the way my blog looks. Whatever the reason, it was time for another change.

Two of the biggest changes are my background and my new header. I love how tranquil and peaceful the new color combination is.


Yes. I run a business, but my business is NOT the focus of this blog. {Of course, you are absolutely welcome to take a look at my etsy shop... ha!}  Instead, the focus of this blog is to help each of us strengthen our homes and families. My family is a BIG part of my life! I hope to share with each of you the things I have learned {in my 6 years of marriage, 4.5 years of mommy hood, and 30 (eeek) years of life} to help us all stay healthy, happy, and organized.... with some fun crafts and projects along the way to keep us all sane!

In an effort to help keep you one-time readers here {ya, you know who you are} I have re-done the tabs on the top of my blog so that you can easily find what you are looking for.  Hopefully you will take some time and have a look around. I love reading every comment and suggestion!

Oh, and speaking of suggestions, I would LOVE to hear what YOU would like to see on the *new* blog. If you have any craft tutorials you are just dying to learn about, let me know. Is there something you need help organizing? It's probably something I need help with too... let me know about it and it will give me the drive I need to get it done at my home and share ideas of how you can make it work in yours!


Continuing our tour, you will notice some fancy new buttons! I created two buttons... essentially the same, but in different sizes. Not all of us have a cookie-cutter blog. With two sizes to choose from you can grab whichever button works for your blog!

Plus, I have these cute buttons


so that you can easily find my Facebook page, RSS feed, Twitter {does anyone still do that?}, and my Etsy shop!

I did away with my labels on the sidebar since you now have cute little tabs on the top of the blog to be able to find what you are looking for {complete with little icons}. If you want to find something specific, try out the search box. It will let you search through my blog posts.

In case you are wondering, the answer is YES. I did all of this myself. Was it daunting? Yep. Did it take a long time? Yep. Was it worth it? Oh ya!

*On a side note {after all this is my blog} if anyone wants/needs help designing their blog - in blogspot only for now - I would be absolutely happy to help! As far as pricing goes, a custom blog header, 2 matching buttons, and coordinating sidebar categories will cost you $50. That includes installation on your blog as well. If you are looking for complete customization, it is a flat fee of $100. If you are interested, send an email to me at kdbuggieboutique at yahoo dot com.

I hope you like the new format and the new look. PLEASE leave me any suggestions you have for what you would like to see on the blog! After all, it is a blog dedicated from one mommy to another!
