Time for a Makeover

I'm re-decorating today.  My Blog, that is.  As some of you know, I've had two blogs for almost a year and it's time to consolidate, re-do, update, simplify.  I don't need to have two.  It's hard enough to keep up with one and I don't feel organized about it.  My other blog is mostly pictures of my "things" that I make.   Since this is so much of who I am and what I'm about there is no reason that I see to keep them separate.  When I start a new project, complete a project, have questions on a project, you'll all know about it right here. 
Now with the new Pages Widget on the blogs, I have set up a page of "My Charming Creations".  The link to this can be found under my banner above. 
I'm leaving my other blog:  http://mycharmingcreations.blogspot.com/ up because I have 10 months worth of pictures on there that I don't want to lose, but I won't be posting anything new on there.  I also still have my Etsy site:  http://charmingbynina.etsy.com/  .  New things will go up there on a regular basis.

The other new addition to this blog is my Button.  You can see it on my sidebar.  I kept seeing these buttons on other blogs and they are so cute, but I had no idea how to get one of my own so that others can (hopefully) collect it.  So a big "Thank You" to Connie at Living Beautifully,  http://connie-livingbeautifully.blogspot.com/.  Connie made this one for me.  Isn't it cute?  It's Me!  Connie, you're a sweetheart!

Just like my home, my blog is a constant work in progress.  The goal is for it to change and grow for the better.  Also, as is the reason for re-decorating my home, I get bored easily.  I like to get new things sometimes,  or just re-arrange as in no cost decorating.  It's all just lipstick and rouge.  The heart and soul will remain the same.

Hey Nina! Love the new look of your blog. I've noticed alot of people have been changing the look of their blog in the New Year - myself included. I also love your button. I'll be adding it to my sidebar. I may look into one too. Take care!

Nina, I am glad you are consolidating, for me it makes me not want to miss anything! And you are one of my favorites to follow! Not to mention every comment you leave for me makes my heart so glad...

It's a beautiful page! I've thought about combining a couple of my blogs. I want to keep my writer's blog separate, but I might consolidate the other two... when I have time.
