A New Look

Yes, I have a brand new look! No, I did not do it. For Mother's Day Brianna surprised me with, of all things, my own domain. You can now find me at KathleenWachter.com. She started with a blog makeover inspired by the picture you see on my header. Susan at Just Photos took this last week during our families annual photo shoot. Yes, I am crazy about it. No, I can't wait to see what else she came up with. I didn't know it before but I am also crazy about the colors purple and yellow.

If you glance at my sidebar, you will see Brianna has added lots of new ways to keep up with our family happenings. I really don't know what most of these are or what Google + is but they tell me it's all good. I keep getting emails about who has Google+ ed me (is that a word?) and I keep asking what that means and I think it should make sense but my brain hasn't quite caught up to the explanation yet. The other day my hubby google + ed me and since I had no clue what it was about, I had to ask Brianna to show me how to see his message.

What do all these changes mean for you? Nothing. You can still find us at http://artschilipepper.blogspot.com where you will be redirected to http://www.kathleenwachter.com/. You will note a few pages are still under construction but we will have fun finishing those over the next few weeks. Eventually, my email will move to the same domain but don't sweat it, because you can just click the Contact tab at the top to find out how to keep in touch.

So, I never thought I would see the day that my daughter would gift me with an internet domain. Nor did I think I would see the day I would be excited by that. As a matter of fact, until she showed me the new cards she designed for me, I didn't even know I wanted a domain. ☺

 But there you have it, I hope you love it as much as I do! Big super thank you to Brianna. You can check out her blog design service at her blog, By the Way.

Hugs,
Kat

  1. I love it, Mrs. Wachter! You must be tired of me saying "Brianna has outdone herself once more!", but it's the truth — she just keeps getting better and better. I especially like the purple and yellow together; lovely combination.

    I've been wondering about when to approach that formidable world of personal domains, but simply haven't had the courage (or the funds :P) for it yet. Someday, I hope . . . especially since lizzyslovelylibrary.blogspot.com is a tad long. :D

    Blessings,

    1. Elizabeth Rose,

      I never do get tired of hearing it, because I never stop thinking it! I am constantly amazed at how she has taken something she knew nothing about and grown it into such a wonderful talent. I am surprised at how much I like the purple and yellow together. I have always admired it in my gardens but never thought I would like it in my closet.

      You should have Brianna help you with changing your blog address. I believe you can do it without getting a new domain. Of course, I am not very knowledgeable about such things but it is worth an email to By The Way.

      Hugs,

      Mrs. W

  3. Aww, what a sweet gift! Brianna did a lovely job, as usual. I love it. Emilia and I just sat down and tried to see if we could figure out everyone in the header without seeing their heads. I *think* we got it right...:P
