Fresh and Shiny

I feel a little bit like that scene in every movie ever where a character comes [into a room, down a staircase, out from behind a curtain] and s/he suddenly looks their very best and everyone gasps because this was the potential all along. Like, “Hey, we always knew you were [smart, funny, talented] but now your outside matches your inside!”

Yeah. I’ve been blogging since 2005. I started out, as most of us do, on a free site. I had nothing fancy to look at, and I was writing primarily for our long-distance extended family. Eleven years later, I’ve got my own URL and this space finally looks like what I’ve always envisioned. (even if my audience is still family and a few friends. I’m okay with that.)

The genius behind the look is Elaine at Elaine Griffin Designs. She was so easy to work with! I didn’t want to be one of those people who goes, “Um, I don’t know what I want it to look like, but, um, make it pretty and put a bird on it.” I hear that drives designers crazy. Luckily, Elaine has a great questionaire tool that helped me narrow my focus so that I could put into words what I really wanted for the blog. And she managed to turn that page of questions and answers into this! (imagine me making jazz hands all around the room) I adore my logo. 🙂 Don’t you? I think it’s absolutely lovely. (And look up there in your browser tab – she even made a coordinating favicon. Squeee!)

So if you need some web design awesomeness, please head Elaine’s way.

Aaaaaaand… I’m not quite finished. I have one more surprise coming, probably next week sometime – but that will get its own post. 😉 (imagine me happy-dancing away)

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”
