QUICK, QUICK, QUICK....CLOSE YOUR EYES...

Now don't open them until I tell you!

Just listen first!

I have a new blog design.

I've been waiting and waiting and finally it's done and I love it. I hope you like it too but no peeking yet, OK?

Sharon over at Redbud designs made this for me and I think it is different and cool and fun and interesting and, and, and...

Well.... look, I'm just going to let you see it now.

When I count to three OPEN YOUR EYES!

OK! ONE!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ta Da! Isn't it cool?

See, there's even a blog archive index thing-y down there on the right. Wow.

OK, I am close to hyper-ventilating here. Must. find. brown. paper. bag. gasp.

OK, I'm back!

I hope you like it as much as I do. Out of breath again with excitement. Breathe, Jenny, breathe...

OK...and speaking of exciting things...

Ummm.... OK, this is a totally unnatural segue but...

Happy 29th Birthday Greg! We love you! And also...I'll be posting the next part of the surprise wedding later today.

After I get done admiring my new blog.

Thanks Sharon! Your patience and talent just amaze me.

And if you're thinking about re-designing your blog...get on her list now. She is the easiest and most wonderful person to work with.

Gosh! Look! See how cool it is?

OK, I'll stop now.

Sigh.

Just found your blog. Love the music (and the posts) but have been soo enjoying MUSIC...and my favorites - things I've heard and remember! I'll be back..might even join the Thursday thing..sounds like fun!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

I know your "Quick, close your eyes!" "But keep reading!" were just done for cuteness, but! I could DO it. 'Cause I read your post, on my Google Reader thingie.

I read. But did not see the new blog look. Till I clicked and came here! So....... It worked, on me. :-)

Lovely look, my Dear! Softly restful colors, and look, and all. I like that! I like softness and restful-ness. Some blogs kind of hit you in the eye! Bang! I don't like that. I prefer restful. :-))))

.♥.♥.♥.♥.♥.♥.

Oh! I love the new design! I imagine the typed messages that Henry Miller sent to Anais Nin would look something like this. And thanks for using clear type on a white background. I'm terribly nearsighted and my eyes are always fatigued. You're very kind.

laterg8r said...

great new look and it totally goes with the alphabe-thursday/teacher thing you've got going on :D

Amy said...

it looks amazing..

Jackie said...

It's beautiful ! I like it a lot . It's probably one of the better ones that I've ever seen . How lucky you are ! A new up-do and a blog makeover? get out :)! It's fabulous hon. I am guessing it cost a pretty penny .

Wanda said...

Perfect Jenny!

Brenda said...

I read you on Bloglines so I was coming to give you crap about the new designs (and how I'll never see it since I read you on Bloglines...) but then... I had to come to post my rant and wouldn't you know it, I am lovin' the new design... It's just too spiffy...how fancy of you to have your name on the background there, Missy! Gotta say, I might just leave more comments now just to come and see the "fanciness". LOL!

Mama Bird said...

LOVE your new design!!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Two words: AB FAB!
