Brand New Look!

I was very excited when my little spot on the interwebs got a new home.  You aren't official until you have your own dot com address, right?  And I told you there would be some redecorating to come. Well...

What do you think? Do you like it?

psst:  this is when you leave me comments telling me what you think!

I love it!  Super excited about it, actually!

The genius behind this design is Kim over at Seven Thirty Three.  She is amazing, so creative, even more patient and surprisingly reasonably priced!  What more could you want in a blog designer?  Seriously, you should head over to her site and just take in all of the awesomeness.  And to make you love her even more, she has a rocking craft blog.

So here's all of the fun details.  For a while now, I thought that the old design didn't quite fit.  It wasn't "me".  It was nice.  But that's the problem.  Who really wants nice?  The tricky part was figuring out what design really was "me".  Oddly enough, I didn't really have a clue what I wanted.  But Kim was incredible and somehow figured it out through my rambling emails.  She made a fabulous initial design and then stuck with me through bunches of revisions until we found a design that I just love.  My favorite elements are the colors (my favorites- purple and green) and my nod to Raleigh through a cute acorn here and there.  After all Raleigh is the city of oaks, for those of you not up on your random Raleigh trivia.

But the excitement doesn't end here.  Did you notice those social media buttons up there above my picture?  Yes, Redhead in Raleigh is now on Facebook and Pinterest!  So go ahead and "like" me and "follow" my pins.  All the cool kids are doing it.  No really, they are!

And there is further excitement too!  Since I won't be working behind the scenes on all of this blog design stuff, I'll actually get back to blogging!  Yay for posts!  Although I would like to note that this is the first time that it appeared that I was slacking when I really wasn't.  Just saying.

psst-  comments make me smile!

Disclaimer: I was in no way required to tell you about the awesomeness that is Kim from Seven Thirty Three.  This is just my opinion.  But lucky for her, she happens to be pretty cool and incredible at this blog design thing!



  1. Love it!! Green and purple is one of my favorite color combos! It must be a redhead thing :)

    1. Or it could be that we are just awesome! But I guess that goes without saying when you are a redhead, right? ;-)

  2. It's utterly terrific!

    (to be sung to that Lucky Charms jingle: "They're magically delicious!")

    1. Thanks! Looks like I know who to come to when my blog needs a jingle!
