Grand (re)Opening!!

Welcome to the new and improved Valerie at Home!!

After hours of hard labor under a persnickety task master, Mr. at Home has produced a beautiful theme for my blog. Fonts, graphics, icons, heck, even the Google ads are in the new custom color scheme. It's a simple, clean look in my favorite sunny happy colors and I am so incredibly happy.

So what do you think? Do you like it? Is it working in your browser?

Of course, no grand opening is complete with prizes! And games! And a balloon artist! And cotton candy! I can't do much about the cotton candy, but I can do a give-away. This morning I made a quick run to the craft store in search of something with pink and orange circles. The thing that caught my eye was the glass beads.

In celebration of the new Valerie at Home theme, I am giving away one beautiful bracelet made this morning while I sat by the pool watching my kids swim. What? You don't make jewelry poolside? But see what you're missing!
To enter the drawing for the beautiful Valerie at Home themed bracelet, simply leave a comment on this post. As an added bonus, if you leave a comment on Mr. at Home's post, then I'll enter your name in the drawing twice. I KNOW! THE EXCITEMENT!

So get commenting and I'll draw the winner Wednesday night at 9 pm EDT.

Looks super! Much easier to read and see what's been read previously.
The color schemes are great.
Just a much brighter blog site!
And with my new eyes, it's really super great!

I'm jealous. My blog could use a makeover. But somehow (much as he's computer savvy) I don't think Musing Dad is up for it.

Love the new look!

Wow! You've got some 1337 designer skills! Put me in the drawing for the bracelet. My wife would love one, I'm sure.

I love the new blog. It looks so trendy and stylish just like you! Mr. at Home did some very impressive work as well. I miss you and hope you come to Tx. to visit this summer.
Love, Jen :)
