{My first blog makeover}

I just designed my first blog. My little sister has been wanting me to forever, so I need your opinion. Does it look ok? Is there anything you would change or do differently? Go over and check it out for me. Peas in a Pod

I think it's gorgeous! Great color combinations!

It looks really great and I love the color choices. I did notice a couple of typos in the quote. It should read: "A mother holds her children's hands for awhile, their hearts forever." Or you could use ... between awhile and their (no spaces).

Can't wait to see what you'll come up with next!

It is so good you could start your own business!! I just wanted to point out one little teeny thing. To the right side of the title it says, "A mother holds hers childrens...." I'm not sure there should be an "s" on "hers". "Childrens" should have an apostrophe because it is possessive. :)

You did a fantastic job! I haven't shown it to your Dad, if he is home and not on the computer - well, he's in bed. I'll show him tomorrow. Guess what even your sweet husband said how good you are at this stuff. Maybe one of these days I'll have you help me blog.

Hi Nicole. I don't know if you remember me, but I went to Snow with you and Corwin. Corwin and I were in LD's the first year and part of the second year. Meinda Saxey. Anyway, I have been reading your blog for awhile now and I decided that I would finally post and just say how much I enjoy your blog and your cute, practical ideas. I love how everything has turned out. Anyhoo, just thought I would say Hi.

You did a wonderful job!! :)

Becky said...

I wouldn't change a thing. It looks FANTABULOUS!!!!

Me said...

I love it, but wondered if you could do the background a different shade? white seemed a bit stark. Maybe a cream? I thought you had changed your page and I really, really like yours!

mommy2gabby said...

Love, Love it!! The colors are beautiful and the header looks great! Like the mixture of the flowers and the ribbon trim!
A new calling?

Okay, that is beautiful. How did you do that. Awesome job and awesome blog.

onlymehere said...

It's so cute! My blog is pretty boring but my eyes are so bad that it's easier for me to see it that way! I even read on there where they sold their deer head, Bruno. I laughed when I saw that she's going to miss him! Why did they sell him then? Just curious.

Kristi said...

You are so creative and I love the colors. Great job!

Laura said...

I think it looks great! You may have to do mine someday! When you get the chance stop by, I have something for you to pick up :)

Angie said...

Forgiven Chick said...

Its amazing... Wonderful Job! I am new to blogging one day I'll learn how to do what you've done! Incredible, Love it

Heather said...

It's ADORABLE!! I love the colors.

Jess said...

Thanks, Shannon of EightCrazyDesigns did mine, there is a link at the bottom of my blog that goes to her.

Amber M. said...

Nicole...just leaft you an award over on my blog! Thanks for all your inspiration.

melissa said...

Nicole~I cannot remember which one I downloaded, but I just played with the widths of the columns in the html until I liked it. Be sure to back it up first so you don't accidentally delete it all (like I did my first go around!!) So, my outer wrapper is 960 px, my main wrapper is 458, and both my sidebars are 208 px. I hope that helps. HTML is so not my friend.
The blog looks fantastic!

beth at aunties said...

Nichol,
Seriously it is a darling blog header. Your sister is lucky to have you share your many talents with her.
It still is an amazing blog header.
I have more questions about your wonderful pretzels you and your mom made for your brothers wedding?

Where did you find the long pretzels? I haven't been able to find them yet.
Does it matter what brand of choclate chips you use?
How many did you put in each bag?

We are now making them for my sisters wedding reception during the week of Christmas plus my sons wedding shower Thanksgiving weekend:) So for about 750 people!!!
We appreciate you sharing your talents and tips.
~Beth

Hi! I just came across your blog and hope to stay awhile. I just love some of the past posts that I have read...especially your furniture rehab and I definatly fell in love with the stars hanging from your front porch. So excited to read through some of your past posts! -Mandi

Jessica said...

It looks so great! You should do a post on how to make such cute blog backgrounds, cuz that I have no idea about!
