Yes, you're in the right place! Isn't my new blog design SIMPLY FABULOUS!? Having blogged for nearly a year now, I figured it was time I broke out of the generic Blogger design I had and expressed a little more of my own style. I had seen many, many beautiful, creative blog designs on the Internet. I expressed interest via emails (even paid a $10 deposit for the "privilege" of being on one list but never got responses from them.) Am I ever glad of that, because I wasn't feeling all that inspired by those designs. But then, I fell upon Lena Toews's Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates and fell head-over-heels in love with her FABULOUS work.

I highly recommend working with Lena, for several reasons:

A) Duh. Her work is FABULOUS!

B) She is very pleasant to work with; dependable, professional, and efficient (answered emails promptly and was available for phone contact).

C) She has many FABULOUS free templates to choose from but will also tweak existing ones or start from scratch, if necessary. We started with a basic template, and Lena patiently helped me put my ideas into a product.

D) Lena has some terrific tutorials on her site, as well, for those brave enough (and with enough time) to brave it alone.

E) Lena does not poke around; she is very efficient. My 1st draft design was ready within days.(of course, her business is growing, so I'm not sure how long that will last! haha)

F) Lena is a stay-at-home mommy of a 4-year old girl and a 2-year-old boy. I love supporting SAHMs!

G) Her prices are very reasonable.

H) She's adorable (even though she's Canadian, eh?)
I hope you agree, Lena is FABULOUS, and so are her blog designs. Now, I do have some tweaking to do on my links and auxillary pages, but so far, I'm lovin' it in here! Thanks for coming to hear my news and for your patience in the switchover.

Now, be careful with those fireworks tonight if you are an American! And please go congratulate my dear friend, Milena, who officially became an American yesterday! I'm so excited for her, as she is a beautiful person with a incredible writing talent and a heart of gold. In fact, I gave her this award recently,when I came to my senses and realized she was a PERFECT candidate. It is "dedicated to many who nourish and enrich the spirit and creativity. They see dedication, creativity, camaraderie, joy and above all, ART - much art." I know you will agree.

Happy Independence Day!!
