A Fresh Start

A fresh start is always good. Leaving the past in the past is even better...sometimes that is the best advice to follow. I am anticipating 2010 to be a great, new lease on life....and well....I needed a little freshening up to help keep me focused on the new beginning and leaving the old junk in the past.....

A new blog design is just what I needed. The old one was great, but I sorta felt like my blog had evolved into something different than my original plan...funny how that happens, and I am loving this new look.

Michelle from Shabby Creations has the patience of a saint....and has a real knack of taking a bunch of mumbled emails and turning it into something that reflects each individual....I know it was not easy....when I say mumbled, I mean in the sense of throwing out so many ideas, styles, images, etc and well, somehow she puts it all together and it works....I love it.....and could not be more pleased. I so appreciate her patience during the process and even the tiniest of things I wanted tweaked, she gracefully made the changes and did not bat an eyelash....Thank you so much, Michelle.

How about you? Are you wanting to leave the past behind and move forward with something new....I would strongly suggest paying Michelle a visit....believe me...I sorta feel like the baggage from the new year has boarded a plane without me and is gone.....Sigh....let the new year begin.....

  5. Excellent! I could not have done better myself. We all need a fresh start. Guess you see I have one too. I like the new VTT button. People would think they had the wrong blog if you did have your "children" on it.

  11. Happy New Year Suzanne - I don't want you to think I only come visit on VTT! Although that's normally when I post. But I had to tell you I love the design and really do want one for myself - I will keep her in mind. I really do at least want that little tabby thing across the top to section out the blog - I'm pressed for money though and it will have to wait. But she did a lovely job. And a fresh start, yes.

    Always a great thing.

    Your inspiring as always, be well

  16. As a new reader I am amazed what you evolved into just overnight! I sent your link to my Mom a weiner lover like myself and she is hooked! Now I am inspired to evolve my blog so that when I grow up I can emulate you. Hmmm I am only 50 something and think one of these days I will grow up!

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
