Every page on my website just got a fantastic make-over, and it’s all courtesy of Mary Catherine Starr of Starr Struck Design.
I liked my “before” website because I was proud of my efforts. My previous attempts to create two different blogs a couple of years ago swiftly ended after I could not figure out how to do anything. When I was actually able to figure this Weebly thing out a month ago and start writing and posting, it felt amazing. But I always planned on revamping my website, somewhere down the road.
So when one of my BFFs, Mary Catherine Starr, a phenomenal artist who can create just about anything, generously volunteered her time and efforts to do some “tweaks” to my website, I internally screamed like Ellen’s audience members do when Ellen says they win ALL 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways.
I LOVE my new website and I’m so grateful to Mary Catherine for offering to do something so special for me when she is busy with her own work and personal demands (like her adorable 4-mo. old, Charlie Mae).
I know that I write about my BFFs Mary Catherine and Laura nearly every time I post, but it’s difficult not to talk about your best friends so much when they are incredible people who do anything to support you (whether it’s serving as beta readers for your book, re-designing your website, or stretching out your shoes that you bought in France because they wear size 10-ish shoes and you wear size 8-ish).
I’d also like to take the opportunity to invite anyone reading this to contact Mary Catherine if you need a website or a new logo. She designed my website with my personality and interests in mind, and that’s part of why I love it so much. It’s my dream website. She could design yours too.
Thanks everyone for reading a long, shameless post about how much I love my BFFs and my website.
And now, happy New Year to everyone! For you I wish beautiful hours with the ones that you love most. I know many of mine will be spent watching my son with a smile on my face, and asking anyone who’s around, “Did you see what he just did?! He figured out how to use a Kleenex to wipe his own nose!” or something to that effect. And also time enjoying the natural beauty around us (and hopefully fighting a little bit more to preserve and protect it—I’m speaking for myself here.). And finally, I hope you have at least a few solo trips to Target or the movies or the church sanctuary or volunteering or getting a pedicure or manicure. Whatever you need to do for yourself to feel like the person you want to be.
I’ll see you again tomorrow!
