Extreme Makeover: Blog Edition

I love makeovers.

A good friend of mine once won a makeover of her teeth. Really. The contest was sponsored by a morning radio show, and she won porcelain veneers for all her teeth. She also got a designer haircut and a makeup consultation. It was wonderful.

Much as I'd love to have porcelain veneers, that kind of makeover is not happening for me right now. But I'm thrilled to announce the makeover of this blog, which is nearly as exciting.

If you've visited here before, you've probably inferred that my ability to make my blog visually appealing is pretty limited. It's just not something I could do for myself. So I did something else: I hired Darcy.

Do you know Darcy? She's wonderful. Her work is amazing. She's smart; she's quick; she's gifted; she's fun; she's funny; she's affordable; she's a joy to work with. About the only bad thing about Darcy is that there's only one of her, so she has a waiting list.

But, oh, when you make it to the top of the list. . . !

I have a logo. I've never had a logo before. I have my own button now. Blogger heaven! If you'd like to, go right over there and grab it for yourself. I even have a favicon. Before Darcy, I'd never heard the word "favicon." Now, though, I'm not sure what I'd do without one!

So thank you, Darcy, for your incredible work. And thank you, reader, for visiting me here. Please come back tomorrow, when I'll be having a giveaway to celebrate my new look!
