Blog Changes

Hi Everyone!

I've decided to make some changes to my blog ~ I pretty much changed Everything! From the background color...new header picture...and from a 3 column back to a 2 column.

I wanted to take advantage of using the collage aspect on Picnik, before it shut down for good, which is where I created my previous blog header ~ I still incorporated 2 of my pretty babies, Annie and Estella, as well as 1 of the MANY pillows, Christmas Stockings, and Lap Quilts that I've created over the years, a recent photo of our home's exterior, outside pic of our covered porch, that was set up for photos for a Pink Saturday post, and some pics of our Living room, Laundry/Mud room, and the fireplace. I really like the look and feel of it, as I think it best represents me :)

Also, I've gone from having my background pink, now to white, but still having all the lettering and etc... in pink.....and wanted to go back to having just a 2 column blog instead of 3, as it makes it more simple and not so crowded looking. Plus it helps makes the photos in my posts larger, which I like much better.

So, what do you all think of the changes to my blog? I would love to hear from you!

Many of you know that there is a new tool for following your favorite blogs, called Linky FOLLOWERS ~ it's free to sign up, and a great way to find even more blogs out there! I hope you will sign up and follow me. I think it's a shame that those who do not have a Blogger account will lose the Google Friend Connect :( Thankfully, I won't....but there has been rumors that GFC will eventually be fazed out! So I'm so glad there is the Linky Followers!!

Well, I've been on this computer for waaaaay to long today, so I think I will take a break for now, and check back later today to see what everyone has been up to.

Until next time sweet friends!!

Things look very nice, but, the pink for words is not as easy to read for me.♥♫

Dearest Brenda,

It looks lovely, only the font could be darker for easier reading... This hurts the eyes a bit, at night that is!
Love to you,

Mariette

Hi Brenda,
Your blog changes look gorgeous and I love your new header too.
I also added the linky following for those without GFC. Seems like lots of changes are a coming.
I went to a 3 column about months ago, but feel like I need to go back to the two column. Still thinking on it!! Change is good.

Thank you for the update this morning. I can't wait for my package.
XOXO Celestina Marie

Hi Brenda, I like your new blog look. I want to change mine, but it is going to have to wait for a while. I so enjoyed the chocolates and my goodies. I am catching up with my friends while I take a break from everything else going on in my life. Have a great weekend Your Missouri Friend.
