New Year, New Blog Look

You may have noticed that the old blog got a makeover! I've been wanting to do this for a long time but do not possess the skills to do anything close to what I envisioned. This was actually one of my Christmas presents. My lovely mother in law purchased this service for me after I had mentioned that I wanted to do something like this.
After reading a favorable review on Handmade Jane, I hooked up with Pish and Posh designs via Etsy. I went with the "Gold Package". For a small fee (compared to the amount of work put in), I received a whole new look for the blog including installation. Trina, the designer, and I emailed each other countless times back and forth. She took some very vague ideas of what I wanted (I'm no designer) and came up with a concept that I love. I'm particularly enamored with my custom social media icons to the right- aren't those adorbs? Trina was an absolute doll and never seemed to get annoyed with my questions or things that I wanted to change along the way. She has multiple packages available on Etsy so that you can get something for every need or price range. I highly recommend her service if, like me, you want to spruce things up but just don't know where to start!  
I'm totally a sewcialist now! So click on your favorite social sites on the right to hook up with me.
Another change worth mentioning is I've turned off comment moderation for posts less than 14 days old. I despise word verification so had turned that off a long time ago. However, I do get loads of spam comments that I need to screen out. I see that some of you double comment because you don't realize the moderation is on. Now that I've lifted moderation for the 14 day period, you will see your comment post right away and you won't need to deal with word verification. Double win!
