I got a little facelift...

Well, the blog did, not me personally. 

{Although with each passing year, I find myself more and more entranced by those Lifestyle Lift infomercials.}

The wonderfully creative Sharon from Redbud Designs is the master behind the new look.  I just love the blogs and cards she designs...and she is an absolute pleasure to work with!

One small addition you might notice in the header is the "savory" link in the navigation bar up top.  This is mainly for my benefit as I make things for dinner (no, we usually don't eat cookies for every meal) and then cannot remember where the recipe came from or how exactly I made it.  FEAR NOT, I know you are here for the sugar...so am I...those posts will not show up in your reader. Maybe if you're looking for something for lunch or dinner, you might click on over. (It's a work in progress right now, but a few yummy recipes are there.)

The main blog post area is BIGGER, which means BIGGER pictures...yay!  For right now, those older post pictures will look a little small...in between baking cookies, I'll be trying to update those.  

If you're reading this post in a reader or an email, click on over and take a peek at the new look!  I hope you love it as much as I do! ♥

  7. The blog looks fabulous! I laughed because I originally added the search bar on my blog for myself, when I was looking to make dinner. I love the little 'you are here' cookie on the sidebar! Congratulations on your new look.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It IS a great new look! I'm loving how clean and and airy it feels (your old design felt a little cramped some times if you know what I mean--though we all loved you just the same! =).

    ReplyDelete

  38. A lot of thought went into this new design and it looks wonderful Bridget. I love that your pictures will be bigger and incorporating your cookies in the your sidebar titles is such a cute idea. Breaking your *Blogs of Love* down into categories was a great idea too. Enjoyed reading your updated *About* page :)

  53. Love the layout! My only comment is the font - courier and those kind of serif fonts are more difficult to read than verdana and times new roman. Just my two cents coming from my graduate level publication class at the university.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I can't find a link to 'older articles' or something at the bottom of the page :(

    ReplyDelete
  55. So bright, light and happy! A wonderful redesign. Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like the old one better.. this ones to plain even though it's nice. the other one showed your cookie talent at the top and it looked excellent! And your bake at 350 logo is gone too and I always loved seeing it next to the web address...
