What's In A Name?

Before you say it, let me assure that I am aware that I change layouts more often than some people shower (oh yes...tis true!!)...but this change is in honor of something special, I promise!  (...says the addict to the one trying to help her step away from the temptation...)  I have chosen a layout that represents me: my love of writing, my obsession for journals, my tendency to write waaa-aaay too much about nothing.

Why the change? you might ask...

Because, as of now, this blog is mine.

No, I mean really mine.

While you are still able to access me thru the blogspot address, what you are looking at now is the fully functional

Silly little stuff, I know...but it has been a dream of mine that is finally realized...something that I had set as a goal, a "prize" only after certain things happened on the blog...and they happened...and then I jumped up and down...and then I registered the blog...and then...  Over-share. ahem.  Bottom line...God is way better than I could ever give Him credit for being and has shocked this simple heart over and over again!

BUT...I do thank you for being my friend...for being so faithful to stop by, read, comment and keep my heart uplifted.  It means a lot as I love getting to come here to "hang out" with y'all and I hope you enjoy the new layout...and that you continue to feel welcome! 

Stay tuned...next week, there will be some fun stuff for those who feel at home enough here to come in, kick off their shoes and look thru the cabinets...  Yup, that means you!! :)

Looking up as always...

Congratulations! Very cool. One day you'll have to teach me the tricks of making these cute. :)

I'm a fan of this layout. I was thinking of using something like this for a Stroke of Living change. We are on the same accord - of sorts.

Nice to be reading you again.

WOW! You look quite fancy pants now my friend! Congrats on you being owned by...well you. You have accomplished much in a few months... and I want to say that I knew you back when there were only single digit followers... ahhh...we've been thru much! ;)

(mine pales in comparison now, I was giddy that my "followers" now equaled 15 so it made a nice, neat rectangle of 3x5 for this OCD wannabe!)

Love you so much and all you have been able to do for HIS glory!

Jennifer said...

Love the look. If you are as jumping up and down happy as I was when I changed my blog's look by myself, I totally get it. God is good & that joy just isn't containable.

Sarah said...

I love the look of your blog. It is so creative! I love it when you find a template/designer who can put to picture (sort of) your passion and purpose for blogging!

Kim said...

Thanks so much for stopping by!

After my post, I have a great appreciation for the cabinet reference.

Yeah "binaspad"! So happy for your moving forward. This background seems to suit you and your writing. :O)

katdish said...

Okay. First time here. I think. Anyway, first thing I said to myself when I got here? OMGoogle! I love her blog template. Awesome! I'm getting there. I know what I want, I just can't find it, and my sucktacular computer skills require that I get help from my talented but o so busy friend. Hmmm. Talk about overshare. Nice to meet you! Did I mention that I really like your blog template?

Karen said...

Bina, wonderful place to stop in and "hang" awhile. Good work! Way to go!

Alicia said...

Wow! Good for you, Bina!!! Is it expensive to own your own domain??

3 Blessings said...

That is so neat. Simple things make me so happy too.

Terra said...

This is my first visit here and your blog is very fresh and pretty. Congrats on progressing as you have wanted to do.

Christy said...

I am so very jealous of your layout. I still haven't found what I am looking for, for mine. But then, who really has time to look these days. I really do love your layout. Congrats on the name. I am going to do that, too. One day. I want to be just like you. :)

Isn't God so good? I love how he works things out.
