New Blog Design!

As you can see, my blog has a new look!
As much as I loved my design done by Brittney, I felt like I wanted something more. I wasn't planning on actually having it redone until at least a year after I started the blog. But when I noticed there was a blog design sale going on over at Eve's Garden of Designs, I decided to order the English Garden Design. I liked how I would get to pin to a mood board, and when I saw a list of all the things the design package included, how could I say no?
On Easter afternoon, I placed my order! Eve did such a wonderful job of working with me, and I absolutely love everything she did.
If you're looking for a new design and have a little extra money to spend, I totally recommend Eve! And, her designs are still on sale for 50% off for the month of April. So go check her out! She also has premade templates, which are cheaper, but very pretty!
Farewell to my first design! You, too, did a wonderful job, Brittney!
Also, I plan to get a reader's survey posted soon, in hopes to spice my blog up a bit. If you know a good way of doing this, please share! I would so appreciate it. :)

    1. Hi, Elisabeth! I agree....both Eve and Brittney did a great job! I have to admit, I love a lot of the extras Eve added...such as this customized comment form.I get really happy about customized blog elements...I'm kind of weird that way. :-)
      By the way, I decided to get a Bofur hat for the giveaway. Is that ok? I know I should email you, but unless I say something right away, it'll take me another month to get around to it. Lol! :)

    1. Awww, thanks, Julia! :)
      Would you like to do a blog swap? (I call it a blog swap since I don't use buttons, I use screenshots.) Lol!

    You should make your survey using Google Forms. You have to sign into your email and then you can create one. docs.google.com/forms
    I like your new background. :)
    Please check out my blog and follow it by email!!!!! And leave a comment too. I would love that!

    1. Thank you, Ashley! I had thought of that, but was wondering if there were any better ways. :)
      I will follow your blog! But I follow all my blogs using blogger. It's easier that way.
      Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by,
      Christine

    2. Okay, That's fine if you use blogger. How do you follow a blog using blogger?

      Also, can you please follow Anna's blog? It's really great. annar0binson.blogspot.com
      Love,
      Ashley

    3. Hi! :)
      You should be able to add blogs to your reader by going to your blogger dashboard (if you're logged in, it's at blogger.com) and then scrolling down. You'll see your reader there! There are instructions for adding blogs to the list. Another way to add them is if you see a Google Friend Connect widget on the sidebar of a blog (for example, I have one on my sidebar) you can join the site there and subscribe. Does that make any sense?
      I will look at Anna's blog. Did you see the comment I left on your blog?

      Delete
    4. Yeah, that makes sense.
      Yes. I did get your comment, and I replied to it. :) Thank you so much for offering! That's so sweet of you! :)
      Love,
      Ashley

    5. Oh, good! I'm glad; I'm not the best at explaining things... :-)
      No problem! I was glad too.
      Yes! Any time any of the blogs I'm following has a new post, I see it. It's much easier then doing it by email, because I can just check all my blogs at once when I have time to leave comments and such, and not have it all filling up my inbox. :)
      Hope you have a wonderful day, Ashley!

  7. Well I have a blog, but it is not visible right now. I left it for a while because life got in the way, and I am trying to redo it. But I hope to have it back up soon:-)
