Spring Cleaning The Blog!

There's something about the start of a new year and the arrival of spring that makes me want to start fresh.....go purge my closet, shred papers, disarm all the land mines in the hallway (i.e. Lego's), and the list goes on.  I can't help but look at every space with a critical eye, thinking about ways to improve it's function and make it better speak our family's language.  Like the mossy green couch in our living room, for example.  Not singing to me so much anymore (but it sure is comfy).  And yesterday, you all saw the organizational crisis that is my daughter room.

The blog is no exception when it comes to feeling the urge to clean up.   I've been playing around with different backgrounds for awhile, but am really wanting a fresh look and better navigation.  Since this blog is about the DIY adventures in our own home, I want the colors and feel of the blog site to reflect what you'll see here on a daily basis. 

So, keeping in mind the colors we've used so far in our updated spaces, I went to my Pinterest boards for some more color/design inspiration.  Here's what I'm loving....

love the texture

 oh happy color!

Bri's gorgeous living room - 
I'm working on a new header and graphics, better overall layout, and improved navigation on the tool and side bars.  Html and code are a foreign language to this gal, so it takes awhile for me to google tutorials and actually get things centered and not looking wonky.  Almost there! 

Who else is in full spring cleaning mode?  What's your latest victim?  Anyone's spring cleaning come to a screeching halt with this latest cold front?  I had to dig out a winter sweater that I had packed away the other day.  Humph.

Pin It!


  1. Pretty inspiration, I'd totally move into the living room you chose as an inspiration piece!

    My latest endeavour for blog spring cleaning was my About page - it is a lot shorter and more colorful now with more graphic elements. Still not perfect, but it'll do for now!

  2. I'm one of those people who (absurdly) adores spring time because of spring cleaning. With my blog doing a huge giveaway week at the moment, I haven't been able to tackle much else at this time. However, last weekend I went crazy on the garage and car while it was nice out!

    I think my next victim will be adding more storage in the play room and a few more decorative touches. We spend so much time in here, it would be great to have a bit more organization. One of these days I'll get to the craft room :)
