the new elsie marley

January 1st, 2011

Welcome to the new blog! I’m super excited about the new design for this little blog. Much thanks to the  handsome genius  I married to that made it all happen. And made it happen on 1/1/11 to boot. My old blog was pretty minimal, bare minimal really, and it needed to be redone.  I think the new design is still clean, but it is  more interesting.  There is a fancy categories page you can see above and a tutorials page too and I’ve even got my own library.  So look around and feel free to tell me what you think! Be sure to check out my fabulous sponsors on the right–they make the magic happen. Happy New Year!

    love it meg. love the simplicity and color gradients.
    do you mind sharing your designer’s info? (unless it was you :))

    • meg says:

      It was me! I used the headless template (a free wordpress template) and then worked with my in-house programmer to make it how I wanted. I’m so glad you like it!

  15. It looks gorgeous! I’m now convinced that I had completely the wrong criteria in mind when I was looking for a mate: I should have looked for web design skills. Ooh, and woodworking skills. Plus the abilily to repair my bloomin’ car…
