New Design and First Linky Party!

Woo Hoo!! I am so excited to show off my NEW (and hopefully IMPROVED) blog design! 
Do you like it?? Well, do ya? DO YA?? 'Cause I do!

I survived my Freshman year of bloging and I have learned A LOT! From better pictures to better content. Making some new friends and putting my work out there for all to see.


I have been thinking about my Sophmore year and things that I would like to do. 

First, I've been thinking of hosting a weekly Linky Party. 
Second, I've opened up a spot for Sweet Sponsors. If you are interested in being a Sponsor, please click on the "Open Ad" to the right and send me an e-mail. 
Third, I'm attending the Online Blog Con.  Are you? I'd like to learn more about building my blog and surviving into my Junior year.  Dorothy and Ashton have been working away to get the confrence underway and have some great sponsors.  Like this one from Vintage Printage.
