New year, new me

Snow scene

After nearly five years of blogging here at Sticky Fingers, I’ve finally lost my marbles.
Those multicoloured balls which sat at the top of my internet space have been replaced. Maybe to mark the fact that we as a family have completely changed since I started writing here (although we still play with our big bag of marbles!). But whatever,Β this blog space has undergone a radical change and has a completely new look.
I’ve been up until the early hours tinkering but there is still a way to go. However none of this would have been possible without the patience, talent and all round gorgeousness of Violet Posy Design.

So hello to regular readers, I thank you muchly for sticking around and making this blog such a great place for me to write and share.
And hello to new readers; welcome, come on in, comment, don’t comment, chat, join in, laugh.

The photo has got nothing to do with the redesign, I just really like it as I took it on my dog walk this morning!

    I think that the new look is fab and should have known it was all down to VP! Also love the picture, wish it looked a little more like that here.

    Lovely clean look. I've been dithering for ages about getting rid of my blogspot. I kept thinking I had left it too long and always used you as an excuse for staying put…if it's good enough for Tara! Now what do I do!? πŸ˜‰

    • Tara says:

      Sorry Trish! I've just keep reading things about how Blooger *could* take your blog away from you if they wanted as you don't really own it and there are far too many precious memories on there to lose πŸ™‚

  5. Love. Love, love, love. Gorgeous. Did I mention it's nice?

    Oooh! We were away for half term and just catching up and the first thing I thought was "Oh b*gger! I missed "girls" in the Gallery" and the second thing I thought was "LOVE the new look". I've been wanting a new look (and flirting with the idea of going .com-ist) for ages, but I've been too incompetent to do so….
