What We Love Wednesday: A Makeover

Who doesn't love a good makeover? You feel refreshed, cleaner, lighter and even more beautiful! You get to spend time focusing on (wait for it) YOURSELF and that is always a good thing!

Well, the Merry Momma's feel the same way about this BEAUTIFUL makeover of our blog. We feel so honored that so many of you check in on us each day and we wanted to give you a beautiful space to visit! A huge, major THANK YOU to Becca at Jumping Jax Designs... she is the guru of great, the belle of blogs, and a digital diva... seriously check her out! (And more on her in a minute!)

Now please sit back and enjoy today's WWLW... 

What: Our new blog design

Why:

1. Because what's more merry than a red bird carrying mail? Seriously how adorable is this design? Just click on this little section of the blog and it will take you directly back to the home page and the most current post.




 


2. Because you can't get lost! See all these fun tabs across the top? Check them out!



Merry Mommas - That's just a little bit about us, why we started this blog, and why we really LOVE to spread the Merry!

Submissions - That's all the information that YOU need to send us your card to be featured. Seriously SEND US YOUR CARDS! We have LOVED seeing them, reading about them and sharing them with everyone. We get lots of emails from people telling us how much these cards have helped other momma's design their cards this year. Even a couple of texts showing us their just arrived online orders...IN SEPTEMBER! Y'all - this is amazing! And we LOVE it! So keep sending them in!

Favorite Things - You know, just like brown paper packages tied up in string, the Merry Momma's have a few favorite things! Click on this tab to see our favorite online stores, card designers, photography inspirations, and other must knows! If you see something missing, then send it our way and we can add it to the list!

Sponsorships - Check out this section to discover how you can sponsor YMM! We would love to high light your store or your craft to our readers! Click here to find out how! A big thanks to our first two sponsors! We clearly adore Butterfly Chaser Photography and Jumping Jax Designs can't be applauded enough!




3. Because social media is our friend! You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest! We would LOVE for you to follow us on each of these venues! And, if you have a question, comment or idea - then PLEASE send us some email love! We want our inbox to be merry, too!

5. Because buttons are cool. If you're a blogger we would love for you to put our button on your space! It's like showing your love for your favorite Boy Band in the digital age. Except we are not boys and there is no band. But there is a whole lotta cute going on here!

  12. Love the make over!! I have been blogging for a little over a year with teacher ideas and really need to look into making over my blog... it isn't a very good reflection of my creativity (technology creativity isn't my strong suit). Thanks for the info on a blog "decorator" I can use.

  24. What a great design!

    Following you on Bloglovin as Google Friend Connect doesn't work for me. Last I heard it was totally discontinued in July? Either way, the GFC "Follow" button just loads to an error page.
