New & Improved
September 1, 2009
Yep, it’s still me. Just a little enhanced. LOL.
Ooooooh, it’s all just soooooo purty! Well at least I think so. You’re looking at the nearly completed, totally transformed, new and improved Centsational Girl™! I’ve been working with a site designer for the last few weeks with a new concept for where I want to take this blog, and we’re so close to achieving the aesthetic goal. September is my birthday month, so this site is a Happy Birthday present to me from Mr. CG. Awwww, thanks shmoopie.
I must admit, I miss my peonies and my damask background a little bit, but the ‘bloom was off the rose’ so to speak. Now I’m loving the new illustrated header and the amazingly organized navagation bar.
Say farewell to the old CG:
* Sniff Sniff. Sigh *
I’ve moved from Blogger to WordPress for starts. The new stylized header you see above will change colors through the seasons – look for the leaves to reflect new hues for every winter, spring, summer and fall. Oooooooh, shmancy!
And check out this navigation bar ! Smooth sailing ahead.
We disposed of some of the sidebar tabs that I wasn’t using, so now navigating this site is even easier. Our whole goal is to make your searches completely user friendly. I’ll be organizing all of the tutorials by subject matter very soon under “Tutorials”. You can find a list of all of the DIY projects under “diy”, all of the crafts under “crafts”, my thrift store transformations under “rescued & revamped” etc.
What’s new are some categories I cannot wait to fill! ”spotlight” will feature whatever I’m focused on at the moment, whether it’s fashion, color, or decor. “inspiration” will be filled now and then with beautiful images of amazing spaces. And you’ll find all of our backyard adventures under “wine country”.
And we’re not even done! We’ll be adding more flash images and video in the upcoming weeks and months. Watch for more features as you visit, including an Etsy store this fall, and much more.
If you come up with a suggestion during your navigation, click on the temporary suggestion box to the left and give us your two cents. Be nice to me, purty please.
Also, CG is now accepting sponsors ! Email me for vistor information and rates, or simply click on the “Sponsor” tab.
And the old button still works, but if you want to hop on the new and improved bandwagon, add the new button to your site by snagging the code on the sidebar.
Fancy Shmancy New Button:
My greatest appreciation to all of those who read about my adventures on this site. If it wasn’t for your readership, these upgrades would never have happened. Thank you all so much !
Cheers to a bright future,
