Hey everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Notice any changes around here? It's about time for a redesign! I still wanted the blog to be clean and simple but with a splash of whimsy and color and I think the animated header adds just that. Thanks to Blog Milk for creating such tasteful templates for people who use blogger. If you've been thinking about giving your space a makeover, Milk Shop has several styles you can choose from for reasonable prices. I picked the Cinza template. I think it's great.

I am also working fast and furiously with my art + vintage home goods shop. Crossing fingers that it'll be up next Monday or if not sooner! I cannot wait.

I'm also accepting sponsors for Old Brand New. If you're an artist, designer, photographer, jewelry maker, printmaker, a retail store owner or simply a creative creature who craves some brand/blog/portfolio exposure, then look no further. Old Brand New is the perfect place for you! I offer affordable sponsorship rates and options for all types of brands because I'm all about promoting creative businesses around here. I've made it a seamless process to purchase and upload ads. If you think your brand is a good fit for Old Brand New then check out the sponsor page.
