It’s time to retire the ol’ blog layout, header, & buttons.
I’ve loved every second of the orangie blog. It’s where this blog came from. It’s my roots.
But as they say, “It’s time to grow the hell up!”
You may have noticed I removed the original header a few weeks ago & put up a basic temporary one.
And now I’ve finally gone and changed the whole darn layout.
Here’s the very first button I ever made:
I want to be embarrassed by it, but it just reminds me of my first days living in Los Angeles when I was bored and depressed and missing Texas. I created a blog to help fill the void while I was in California for 6 months.
Now I’ve got a better button, but it’s still not great (as Lorie has pointed out to me on numerous occasions. Don’t worry, we are friends IRL so she’s allowed to text me and ask if she can please make me a new one because mine isn’t centered. That’s a true friend! ;))
I’m still waiting for my button, Lorie!
And of course I will never forget how sweet and kind Nikki from Creative Knack was to make me a plate based on the look of my blog.
And I will love it forever! And it’s hanging on the wall on my staircase, so I can see it every day!
I LOVE my new layout. I want to thank my amazing husband Ben for staying up until almost 5am getting everything moved over for my new stream-lined look.
(I had to ask him what all those “coding things” were called so I could add them to the post.)
I still need a new header and hopefully some new buttons. I’ll get to it soon!
Click around. See all the new tabs and functions I’ve got goin’ on. And check back soon and click some more. I’ll be making even more updates and changes over the coming weeks.
So, goodbye to the orange, hello to the future!
