Blog Makeover: Color Schemes

My blog is in a serious need of a makeover. Agree? Agree. A facelift, haircut and color, new make up, and wardrobe, and attitude. So do I, but that requires money, time, and care, which I have none. I do have time to show you the different possibilites of color schemes for the future of my blog. Which by the way is getting a new name soon. I have a name picked out, and will be doing a full blown blog launch soon.

Until then, here's some color schemes I am looking into for the new look:

LAST ONE  Sugar and Spice by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake Fat Quarter Bundle
I love everything red and aqua right now! Here's another example:


Here's the last of my red and aqua/teal/whatever combo:

Doesn't that look delicious? If I liked the taste of coconut, I'd be all over that recipe! I may not eat it, but I just might take the colors in this picture!

boarded brights

I love looking at for color inspiration. If you have not stumbled upon this site, do so.
Repin Crafts

So, what do you think? I will probably go with a combination of all the inspiration above. How did you come up with your blog colors? And how long did it take to implement it? I can't wait to get started!

Well Hello There. It's Been Awhile.

I've missed you, Dear Blog. This is the first time I have been on this computer in about a month. We bought a new cord so the computer is working, but I really need a new battery as well. And do something to fix the screen. I am still trying to decide between doing those two things or buying a new computer. The people at Fry's Electronics said it will cost about the same to do either, as long as the new computer is not a Mac. Not sure if I am willing to give up a Mac and the programs I already have on here for a new product I'll have to start over on. Time will tell.

 I really enjoy writing on this blog, when I sit down and do it. All throughout the day I think about things I could write about, but then, as most things in my life, I do not get around to it. I really want to give this blog another shot. But with that, I'd like a blog makeover. Possibly even a new name. I like the name Changes for Addy, but I'm just not in love with it. Ya know? How did you come up with your blog name? Was it a struggle to pick one?

I also need to redesign the layout, colors, font, etc. I am just not decisive about anything! I love everything too much! I find one scheme I like , then another, then another, and they all go into different dirrections. Much like the (lack of) decorating my house.

I want to change exactly what I write about. I may just write what I want for awhile, and see where the blog takes me. Not be chained down by what I am trying to improve upon that week. It is hard to find time to change when you are looking after this cool kid all the time:

I can't believe she's 1 already!

I think I have written enough for one post. I should save all the millions of other things I want to talk about for the future. Which will hopefully not be another month. :) Thanks for sticking with me!
