The Calibamamom: Extreme Blog Makeover Edition

If you’ve been following since I got the rather crazy notion I might be a writer, and found my calling here  at “a calibama state of mind”, dishing all the dirt on what it’s like cultivating a life in Hollyweird with The Man and The Beans then you’re well aware it’s been A WHOLE YEAR.

Wow. Writing that surprises even me, and I’ve been here everyday. Okay, well…not everyday. But I digress.

The time passed in spurts. Most often, I was chasing the days down, hose-pipe in hand, trying to find the source of the damn fire. Then, some days it crept along like molasses being poured out of a Mason jar with me just watching, feeling like a deer in headlights. Regardless, it’s been anything BUT boring, and as Jerry would say, “What a long strange trip it’s been”.  If you are a rookie here, please refer to the image above, as it is a spot-on rendition of what it would look like if the world could SEE what happens inside my head everyday. The pool of inspiration I refer to as my brain is colorful, scattered, scribbly, swirly, energetic, loud, creative, and…impossible to organize. But I’ve been trying, as best I can, right here. Putting it all out there breathes life into it, and invigorates me at the same time. Better than therapy, and definitely cheaper. Anyway, I believe you’ll be pleased if you stick around 🙂

But it was time for a a lil’ redecorating up in here. I like to think of my posts as squares in a patchwork quilt, and while I’ve got loads of fabric to choose from, I needed some fancy, schmancy new appliques and monogramming to complete the look. Obviously, my unfortunate blogtardiness wouldn’t allow ME to do it, but luckily, Twitter was willing to help, unbeknownst to them, of course.  Although I resisted the Twitterverse for a long ass time, over the past year I’ve made some blogging friends, who have a party on Twitter almost everyday, and the peer pressure was just too much for me. I had to join them. THANK GOD I DID!! That’s how I found Andrea, over at Twins Happen. She’s beyond amazing, and entirely responsible for my makeover.  Okay, I supplied the picture of me crossing the street with 9 children in tow, and chose the colors/ motif I liked the most, but she did all the heavy lifting. So she deserves a giant shout-out, and your business if you are in need of a makeover too. Seriously. Talk about hooking a sister up. I mean, look at this place. Cleaned up pretty nice, huh?!

So wrap yourself up in the coziness and warmth of the new embellishments here and if you like how it makes you feel, tell all your friends about it and grab a button from the sidebar to show you are a fan! You can also connect with me via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and email. Whatever works best for you! Oh, and I will absolutely reciprocate…promise. I’m a sharer. Hell, who am I kidding? I am an OVER-SHARER…lol 🙂

Have a good one, and thanks for stopping by!
