Blog Redesigned and Excited With the Result!

There was a time in my life (especially in my missions days) when I would hide away from website design, and all that.  I was about to name all the people I use to hide behind… I think there might be close to a dozen…  wish I would have taken that time to learn from them rather than hiding behind them lol.  Funny how life is like that sometimes.  I’m very excited about the new look of my blog.  Some may have noticed it already, as it’s been up for a few days now… 😉

But now that I’ve made blogging a part of my life, I can’t hide behind anyone.  I have had to learn things here and there, and it’s been stretching but also very rewarding.

I’m by no means an expert (that’s laughable, really), and I still very much rely on the awesome tools wordpress has to offer, but I think I have found a theme I really like, and managed to design my own header using picmonkey (thank you Renee for this recommendation!).  At first I thought I would just do the free trial, but that must be why they allow you to have a trail… ’cause now that I have seen a bit of what picmonkey can do, I’m hooked.  And excited about that – I didn’t even ask my hubby before paying the $40 some dollars for the year… money is something we always talk about, but I think he’ll be totally supportive… 🙂 Uh… right honey?

A lot of prayer went into this new look, and it really is a miracle that I came up with anything.  Seriously.  I’m stepping out here.

Anyway, for my subscribers I hope you drop by and take a look and let me know what you think!  I think this one is a keeper… for now…

I might be just starting to get the hang of this thing!

New devotionals and short stories to come in the next few weeks!  I’m also really trying to nail down a time when my mom and I can work on getting her cinnamon bun recipe on here.  It will be gold when it happens, believe me.

  1. Yay!! You did a fantastic job on your site and I think it’s just lovely. I know that temptation to hide, but you clearly have some beautiful gifts that God intends to shine through, so let the world see! And PicMonkey – yes, so fun, right? If you’re an Apple person, you’d probably also love the Typorama app. I use it to design all my graphics and LOVE it!! Congrats on your new home.
