New Look! by Jeni Baker

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a good start! I'm gearing up for a great one!

I have some beyond exciting news to share with you tomorrow, so I wanted the blog to look its best! It was high time to update things, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I think everything looks fresh and clean! I hope you'll take a look around!

I did all of the re-designing myself using the Adobe Creative Suite (I know a few of you asked!). I edit my photos in Lightroom and Photoshop, the graphics were drawn in Illustrator, and my patterns are put together in InDesign. 

Okay, you're all going to come back tomorrow for the news, right?! You won't want to miss it! :)

Your blog looks lovely! It is definitely fresh and clean! I am in Photoshop every single day! lol I love it. I did my blog as well, but I used digital scrapbooking supplies and then just put them all together :) I'll be back tomorrow!

Lisa H said...

Love your new look, it's fabulous and very fresh. Like Nikki, I too will miss your vintage sheets.
As for your news, my thoughts/guesses are: own fabric range? book? commissioned to design for the White House? baby? wedding? little Georges? Ooh the suspense is getting to me; I don't do surprises well!

SarahZ said...

Only last night I actually said, aloud, to my hubby..."I hope she never changes her header"! Honestly, what a silly thing to say! Your new header is beautiful, and so you! Wouldn't miss tomorrow's post for anything!
