I Feel Pretty

How do you like the new look, my friends?

I think it's grand, and I think that I owe a huge amount of thanks to Jo-Lynne over at Musings of a Housewife. This is the magic she hath wrought through her business, DCR Design.

If you want to have a little makeover and you are either a) completely inept and unable to do it yourself for fear of blowing up the internet (or at least your little corner of it), or b) so strapped for time that you cannot possibly get to it yourself, I heartily recommend DCR Design.

I gave Jo-Lynne some vague suggestions, sometimes not even in complete sentences (Me like purple! Me like flowers! Want three columns! Make pretty!), and she got back to me with at least half a dozen ideas that were all great.

I chose this one because it is my exact favorite shade of purple, and I love the branching flowers. It looks so calm and serene, unlike the booby hatch in which I live. I told Jo-Lynne that I feel like I've been to the spa. I know -- I need to get out more.

Jo-Lynne is fun to work with, and she has several nice package options in different price ranges. If you are thinking about mixing it up, go see her. You won't be disappointed.
