Thinkin' about a change....

Anyone who knows me in the "real" world knows that I become bored with things very easily.

I'm forever changing our furniture around.
I'm always scared to buy large ticket items because I might not like them in a couple of years.
I always want a different car.
I always over-analyze bedding choices.
I love the look of some wallpapers/paint colors, but am afraid to commit to any on a permanent basis.
(What if I change my mind??)

All of this psychoanalysis brings me to my point........I want to redo my blog design.

Not that I don't love my current design.

It's fun.
It's whimsical.
It's summery.
It's very kid friendly.

But.....I'm kinda tired of looking at it.

I want a classic look. I chose the current design because of the children, however after using it for a while, it's really my blog and I'd like it to be more reflective of my personality.

Now, to get to my second point.

Does anyone know where I could download some really nice backgrounds and embellishments?

I know there are some talented bloggers out there, so just drop me a line & help me come up with some ideas for a new look.

Oh, how I wish I knew any of those things.

But I will tell you that www.krizzydesigns.blogspot.com did my make over and it was WAY WAY WAY cheaper than one trip to Target!!

Good luck and can't wait to see what you are going to come up with.

SPLAT did my design really reasonably and I highly recommend Lindsey. As for me recommending anything - sorry - I am clueless as to how to do any of it. But ... I do know lots of blogger friends that do it all themselves and I hope you come up with something you love! Take care - Kellan

I got my current one at pyzam.com
You can do a search for free blogger backgrounds or skins, see which comes up with more hits I can't remember now ;)
But pyzam's are free and there are a ton to choose from.

I love change too.

I love your blog design.

I am crazy about the dots.

I have a link on my blog for
"The Cutest Blog on the Block".
They have cute, free backgrounds and make the download...foolproof!

I have just contacted Kristen at Krizzy's designs to redo my blog.

Great minds think alike.

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog! I loved looking at your blog...your children are beautiful and I especially loved seeing your wedding photos. I may copy you on that...our 14th anniversary is on July 19th and it has been a while since our wedding album has been opened. I can't wait to see the changes you make to your blog!
