A New Look

Happy Monday!! As you might have noticed, I have a bit of a new look here behind the ivy! I've been wanting to change up my design for a while now and include more patterns and colors but was having trouble doing this on my own. I just do NOT know how to write code and templates, etc. so I was going to need some major help.

I stumbled across Designer Blogs after reading about how Elsa at Casa Greer used them to spruce up her blog. I wasn't looking for a major overhaul or wanting to pay for anything too custom but I found this design in one of their pre-designed templates that are VERY reasonably priced and you just download and they give you all of the instructions for how to install it. So easy and just what I was looking for. I'm just loving it!

In the meantime, I also FINALLY ordered some calling cards! I searched and searched through Etsy and got multiple recommendations from other bloggers and ended up going with Pam at Pixelimpress and I'm so happy! She was so wonderful to work with and amazingly got my cards to me, in my hand in less than FIVE days when I needed them in a rush! AMAZING! And the cards themselves are beautiful- printed on very nice heavy paper with a nice felt weave texture. I couldn't be happier with them. If you are looking for any paper products, PLEASE go check out her Etsy shop! So many pretty goodies.

I also worked on a few projects this weekend AND stopped by The Urban Market on Sunday morning which was WONDERFUL of course! I'll have more on that this week. 


  1. It looks great! I love it :-)

  2. Loving the new look. It's so fun and summery! Great job! :)

  3. Dang, I missed Urban Market? How is it May already? There's not another one again until the Fall, right?

    Love the new design and I'm drooling over those business cards.

  4. Thanks! everyone. Tiffanie, the next one is the weekend of October 22nd- mark it down- def worth it!

  5. Pretty, pretty blog design!! And I can't believe I missed Urban Market too- let's plan for the fall one!!
