The unveiling....

Please pull up a chair and enjoy the new blog design. Feel free to help yourself to the chocolates on the desk. Or, perhaps you need something a bit stronger? The "Mommy's Medicine" bottle is always good in a pinch. The fishnets...SO sorry...those I do not share...ALL mine! Although if it's reading you're after, I highly recommend "Caffeine Saved my Life" by JCK, self-published of course. Oh, yes, that IS it on the floor... As you can see, it is a NUTTY day as usual at Motherscribe's abode. BOY is scaling the bookcase and GIRL, well ...she's always up for an art assignment of her own making.

I am absolutely thrilled with the new look! The header artwork is by the deliciously talented Charles Reid. He does everything from animation to illustration. You can find him here. He was FABULOUS to work with - a real collaborative process! And after dealing with me...he is still around to tell the tale.

The blog template designed around the Motherscribe header was all done by Lindsay at Splat Designs. Lindsay is incredibly creative. She was able to work with what I wanted - a template that would keep the header the focal point, but incorporate lovely little touches throughout. She is a gem to work with! Please go visit her site to see her portfolio.

Ooops...sorry, gotta go run out for more chocolate!

It is such an amazing make-over I almost didn't recognize you! LOVE IT...

Manic Mommy said...

LLLLLLove it! I think the header is a riot with the kids climbing the walls, the general disarray, but especially your caricature. I also love the spilled ink on the right nav bar. Great look!

Lisa said...

So that's you and the kids--I love it!

Fishnets? I tried those once; my toddler (ehh, can't remember which one it was) got his/her little fingers stuck halfway up my thigh.

Nice ambiance, though, for a blog!
