La Grandiose Tournée

Announcing...the grand tour of the new and improved website: "Sewing in the Past"!

Well, a lot has been going on and I'm so excited to finally give you a tour of the new website!

The first big change was the background which I found at Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates who has some amazing free blog backgrounds!

Also, with the help of my good friend Atlanta, I have a new blog header. If you will notice, I have changed the name of my blog from "A Young Lady's Blog" to "Sewing in the Past" since the url had already changed, I figured I'd be consistent. And I couldn't have done it without Atlanta!

On the right side bar you will see two new things:
1. Atlanta made a little blog banner for the blog! Huzzah! I think it is SO cute, and I'd love it if you would grab the html code and add it to your sidebar! :)

2. I am following a lot of really cool blogs that I would love to share with my followers! I feel so blessed to have so many followers, and I want to help other blogs as well. So in order to do both of those...I decided to have a weekly "featured" blog on my sidebar with a little write-up and their blog banner. So make sure you check out my "fave" blogs every week and even become a follower if you like what you see!

On the left side bar you can see my list of the winners from the "Little Women of 2010" event with links to their blogs... I'm so happy this event was a success and I already have an idea for an event during the summer (stay tuned for more info)! :)

Anyways, I hope you have enjoyed this tour, and I would LOVE your input on all the new additions! Also, be watching for even more changes on the blog!

I love the new background, and I wanted to let you know that I will be putting your banner on my blog. : )
Unfortunately I found your blog just too late to enter the Little Women contest! I will be looking forward to another event in the summer, this one looked so fun.

Rebecca, I love the blog's new look (I've been meaning to tell you that ever since you put it up)! I'm also looking forward to the "fave" blogs, that should be really fun.

I actually have my own idea for an event up my sleeve...still tinkerint with it...and I'm looking forward to yours.
