New blog design!

Did ya notice?! 🙂 I know people that read this blog on their reader or by email probably haven’t clicked over and seen the new design yet… so if that’s YOU, come over, check it out! I’ve already received so many compliments on the header and I wish I could say I did it myself.

I found this etsy shop that sells adorable prints: The Art of Nidhi Chanani. The owner, Nidhi, is a freelance artist and designer in San Francisco. I asked her if she could draw and design something for my blog header. I told her a little bit about my family and sent her pictures of the 3 of us. I love the personalization of the header, that it really looks like our family, and how cute and sweet it is!

She sent me a few other sketches to pick from and it was hard to choose. One had the 3 of us sitting under a tree and another was of Steve and I playing instruments while Ryan danced. All super cute!

Then I used the same image to create a new, matching blog button. If you have my button on your site, no need to update it–it should have automatically 🙂

And check it out, we have a family photo that looks almost the same!

Here are some prints from her Etsy shop that I love:

So cute, right?! There are a ton more that are absolutely adorable and that I love. These would make great pictures for the nursery or your bedroom or even your family room! Nidhi was great to work with–she was super fast and very open to my suggestions.

The prints are her Etsy shop are really affordable too–you can get a 13×19 print for $25! So make sure you go check it out and show her some love: The Art of Nidhi Chanani. You can also find her on Facebook and Twitter!

I updated the rest of my blog as well. I kept the same theme, but changed all the colors and cleaned up my sidebars! A lot of the stuff was moved to a new area in the footer at the bottom of the page. Well… what do you think?? Do you love the new header and button?!
