Mama's Got a New Bag!!

Happy New Year everybody!! I hope you had a great holiday season and you are ready for another fun year of blogging! As you can see, I am:-) How do you like the new look? I am kind of digging it:-) Let me show you around.

1. I would like to thank my husband Jeff for helping me with the techno stuff. I did the design but he made it work and look pretty. I think he should start his own business, don't you?

2. The left-hand side of the blog is all about me and all about you. In this area, you will see my Chocolate Shop , information about me and all the new stuff that is going on with me. I also have my favorite blogs and places I go to all the time listed here.

3. The right-hand side is all about food and indexing. I have added a "Recipe" area so you can find yummy things easily. After that, there are my favorite food blogs followed by labeling and archiving.

And that is the nickle tour. I also have some super exciting stuff coming up in the new year. Take a look.

1. I will be featured on Happy to be at Home a couple times a month as their new "Crafty, DIY" writer. So, keep an eye out for annoucements here on when to find me over there.

2. I am also starting a new writing venture with a couple of my friends. It's all kind of hush hush right now as we iron out the details but just to give you a hint, I will be exploring the woman-side of all that is Susie. It is going to be really, really fun and I will let you know when that happens too.

3. I will be participating in Iron Cupcake: Milwaukee again this year. The next challenge is January 12th and the press might be there!! So, I may have more press whore news to share with you soon:-) Also, if you are in the Milwaukee area, stop by and check it out. Press or no press, it's a lot of fun:-)

4. I will also be adding some new things to the blog in the coming months. I have a new button in the works. So, if you really love me, you can display me on your blog for all the world to see. I am also looking at some advertising space and other fun things so, I hope you keep coming back for more:-)

Whew! I think that's it. I am totally jazzed about 2009! It has the potential to be totally awesome. So, thank you everyone who has traveled on this journey with me so far. I hope you enjoyed the ride and will stay on for another spin:-)
