A New Look!

So, what do you think? It's a whole new me!

I had the fortunate pleasure of being a total pain in the a$$ to Dionne over at Homesick Cajun as she revamped my 'hood for me. Poor girl didn't know what she was getting herself into!


Anyway - I decided I wanted some pinks, browns and a little bit of blue, too. So she gave me that and then some. And then I decided it was too pink. And then she made some more changes for me. And then I realized I'd have to have a signature. My standard signature always has those two asterisks before my name, and she creatively incorporated the flowers in there.


And so, here I am. Good Girl Gone Redneck in a whole new 'hood. It's still me, underneath the pretty flowers, the light colors and the funky fonts, I'm just that New York girl who relocated, found a whole new Redneck side to myself and started livin' it up here in Blognia.


It feels really good to have my own space, as for the entire time I've been blogging I've been floating around, grabbing free backgrounds and just testing them out, looking for that perfect fit. That perfect way to look at my site and say, hey, whattup? It's really me. It still feels weird to see myself in these colors. It still feels as though - hey, wait - did *I* say that? But I love it. It feels like home. I have to thank her for that, and thank all of you, as YOU are a huge part of what makes this feel like home to me, as well.

Hope you all like the look, and if you don't - well - just lie to me. I can't take it. I'm pretty fragile right now. ;-) Or not. Whatever.

    You know, when I got my blog done I never could decide on a font for signatures, after weeding through SO many. So I finally didn't. LOL!

  15. Thanks, everyone, for the compliments! I LOVE my new look! Makes me wish I actually had one in my real life, too. Paint a few rooms, cut my hair, stuff like that. ;) Maybe soon. It's like spring fever has hit me early. Or maybe it's cabin fever? Or both? Who knows!?!

    @ProudUSARECWife, she'll be posting her info on her site, etc. in the coming weeks, so I'll make sure that she knows to reach out to you! I can't find any email info for you, or I'd have written you directly, as well. Thanks!
