Drumroll, please...

First things first....

I've been a bad blogger. Not only because my posts have been few and far between, but also because I have not been visiting and reading and commenting. I'm so, so sorry, and plan to fix that this week.

But I have some good news! Remember that little contest I held where I begged all of you to help me name my new design blog?

Well. We have a winner! And it is...

Meredith, congrats! I'll be emailing you to figure out which gift card you want.

The reason I waited so long to announce this is because I wanted to have the site done. Or at least mostly done, which it now is, although there are many, many things to be tweaked.

So if you want to know the winning name that Meredith submitted, click here. And then come back and tell me what you think - suggestions are welcome! I guess this means I am officially open for business, which could be a little scary if I thought about it very long.
I picked this name because for one, my hubby and I agreed on it. And it also had the sort of whimsical, lyrical feel that I was going for, and it still played off of my personal blog name. So thank you, Meredith!

I have stared at the computer screen for far too many hours this weekend, and my bed is calling my name. Loudly.

I'm looking forward to hearing what you all think...

Oh, and I love the button that you made for Amber!

I'm laughing that you chose my suggested name...because I don't consider myself a very creative person!!!
