My New Home

Alrighty then, confession time. Saya sudah jatuh chenta dengan... my new layout!!!  :) *syok sendiri*

A big THANK YOU VERY MUCH to the talented (and very patient) Ms. Designer, Ida Yezid of Krafty Palette, for the beautiful new layout. Suka, suka sesangat! :)

I had told her, during the initial requirements gathering, that I wanted a simple but pretty design that would make me (and any visitors who happened to stumble upon my blog) feel happy just by looking at it. Yeah, so very specific, I know. Also, hopefully, in the long run, the new layout can even motivate me to update more often. hee hee hee.

So Ms. Ida came up with two drafts based on our discussions via email and I immediately fell in lurve with one of the designs and we started working from there.

And me, being ME, just had to bug her over and over again to make little changes here and there; tweak sini, tweak sana, and tweak tweak tweak summore. Making her work in the wee hours of the night... I did mention to her, though, that I am somewhat a control freak. I can't help it, it's a disease... So thank you again, dear Ida, for tolerating my obsessive compulsive behavior. I know you think I am one crazy lady, but that's okay. :P

Anyways... today, the design is finally complete and all the tweaking(s) and re-tweaking(s) are done. Yayy!!!

As you can see, I have now added tabs at the top of the blog (previously there were none). In the sidebar, I have added the Recent Entries widget and grouped entries by their respective categories to make it easier to navigate and find your way around. Oh, please do check out the new For Sale tab at the top, and come back often as I will regularly update it with items that might be of interest to you, and especially beneficial to your children, In Shaa Allah.

And that's the story behind this spanking new layout cum blog makeover, which is actually my birthday present to ze blog in particular, for turning nine years old last Saturday. *reminisces*

Looking back, so much has happened throughout the years and this blog has been around to witness it all... that is, whenever I kept it updated-lah. I'd gone through bloggers' block for a while and my poor blog was abandoned and almost forgotten. *hugs blog tightly*

I have had the priviledge of getting to know many amazing individuals (you know who you are) because of this blog and I will cherish and treasure the friendships that have been built, forever.

So, Happy 9th Birthday to... Scrapbooks and More!!! *throws confetti all around*

Here's to many more years of blogging and building new friendships, In Shaa Allah... :)
