Say It Saturday

Welcome to my new blog look! Not a big change but I like it. I have been planning a change for a month or so but haven't found the time to fine tune it all. I think I need to "just do it already!" and started with what I have figured out. The easiest for me of course is the fun of playing with design ideas and photos. And yes I did it with PicMonkey! I love PicMonkey :) 




Not much else has changed but I will be doing a few more things. I may experiment some (I always have too....it's like re-arranging the furniture at home :) to find out what works the best for me. Speaking of which.......

After the carpet installation......well there isn't a room in the house except the bathroom that I haven't wanted to make changes in. We are working our way through a list of to do's to spruce up and clean up and lighten up our home. Getting rid of excess where possible has made a big difference. I am loving the freshness and brightness so far! But it takes a long time at our age when you only have a few spare hours a week.

Once again I need to apologize for not getting to everyone to comment. (I am out of town for a couple of days) So, what have you been up to? Are you settled into spring?

I am so glad you stopped by!

  1. I love you new look. I know it is similar to your "old look," but it seems fresher and more current. I like the blackboard theme. Great job.

  2. Connie, I love your new blog design! It captures the lighthearted sense of fun you present alongside challenges to try new things for keeping life interesting in the nests we call home. When a new project is completed it's time to whisk the chalkboard clean and move on to the next craft, recipe, or family event!

  7. It looks lovely. And I can so relate. This week, I finally decided it was time to speed up my Mac by doing a triple backup and reinstalling the software to take it back to factory settings - a mega computer spring cleaning chore. And while I know it will be grand and speedier when done, it takes FOREVER to accomplish it! :) Oyyyy - but well worth it...eventually! Congrats to you and being done with some your projects delightfully ! :)
