I feel dizzy...I feel sunny...I feel fizzy and funny and fine...

Hey there, blog land! I just wanted to stop in and say hello! If you're reading this from an email or Reader, come check out my new look...I love it!

I have wanted a new blog design for quite a while, but when I tried to do it myself it just didn't work out. So when I saw my friend Heather Rolin had started a company called Individual Blog Banners, I decided to treat myself to a new look for Mother's Day. I emailed Heather on Thursday, and by Friday she had images for me to proof. She took my strange lists and random descriptions and turned them into an adorable banner that's totally ME. By early Saturday evening, Heather had installed all the elements I ordered! I am thrilled with the finished product, and I hope you like it, too.

Anyway, I just wanted to share, and also let you know that Heather is doing drawing for a free banner HERE. So, whaddya think? Should I add a Kraft background, or leave the whole thing white? Help me decide!

I hope you all have a fabulous day tomorrow. I'll be back soon!

OMG! Love this! I sooo love Heather's designs and who knew she did blog designs too! Ummm, I am partial to kraft. I would have to see it, but white is been there, done that. Great new look and happy Mother's Day. Hugs,

Thanks for the love super cutie! Everything did turn out sweet, but it was your vision that helped create this banner! LOVE that you LOVE this and I think Kraft would give it the perfect sprucing! If you install the craft and there needs to be changes made to things, please let me know! Hugs!

Very refreshing new look. I'm thinking maybe the Kraft would look nice with the new banner since it has some kraft like colors in it.

Well, Shannan, I think kraft would be pretty but I think it's a lot easier for old eyes like mine to read in white. JMHO

Love this fresh clean look Shannan! I recently changed my look too...isn't it hard to decide?? It's like redecorating...which I don't do, because I would never be able to pick a paint color! :)
