New Blog Background

I just thought I'd write a little something about my new blog background. I've been thinking that my blog look needed updating for sometime. I had asked a wonderful artist, Peggi Meyer Graminski, to assist me a few months back by designing my blog banner. On my blog hopping travels I had been seeing fantastic backgrounds and borders and wanted to try something myself. Along came Trudi Sissons from Two Dresses Studio. She just happened to mention that she was starting a business creating backgrounds, borders and banners. I asked her if she might be interested in working on my blog makeover and she agreed. We spent a fantastic week talking back and forth about the look I wanted to achieve, images and elements that I wanted included and the result is what you see here. Trudi is very talented and does the most amazing work. You can check out her blog here. Thanks so much Trudi!!
