New Found Skills?

Well, I have to say that I have been a very busy girl. See in my last life (the one that is fuzzy because it is the one I had before kids) I was a Software Engineer and actually worked on elements of the cockpit of the V22 Osprey and until last week I had not done anything to do with code since going on bed rest when I was pregnant with Kirstyn, but for some reason I got it in my head that I was going to learn HTML and redesign my blog. I did (well, I learned how to hack HTML). I'm still not sure I like my new design, but my husband says it fits my personality so I will probably keep it at least for now. Next, I got it in my head that it would be fun to work with a 'client' on a blog redesign just to see how that would work out. Well, take a look at my blogging buddy Kami's new blog and let me know what you think! I had a blast working on her blog and working with her and am feeling extra brave and thinking it might be fun to make a little fun money and do a few more blog redesigns. Anyone interested??? I may decide to start a full blown work at home business... but for now I will just start building my portfolio and making a little money to buy myself some smaller clothes as I continue on my weight loss adventure!

As I have already told you I think yours and Kami's both look great!! Obviously having kids hasn't hurt your brain too bad! Way to go girl!!

Her blog looks great and so does yours. What a background you have. I think you NEED to go into business for yourself! How fun. Nap Warden did my design right when she started out. She has a bunch of clients now. AND, she is learning new software all the time. Amazing, really. I want to learn myself, but am just overwhelmed with the new parenting thing and keeping up with my blog!

My sister is starting a blog . . . maybe you'd be interested in working on it. It hasn't taken off yet, but it will soon.

OMG--I must say that your kiddies are ADORABLE.

Oh, and I forgot to add . . . J is only a few months behind James! Gosh, what a cutie!

Um, I might be repeating myself but.....


I LOVE MY BLOG DESIGN!

And by that I mean the one you designed for me!

I am a lucky blog buddy :-)

Hey Natalie, looks like you'd be great at this new gig. I know, it's hard once you have kids and stay at home for a while, you feel like your brain has gone on "freeze-frame"; doesn't look like yours has though. It all looks great!!!!
