So whadda ya think?

This page now looks entirely more orange than it did while I was designing it, but Momma's got a brand new 'do!

Leave me comments if you would, please, and let me know what you think of the place! (I would also appreciate any feedback about items not lining up correctly, graphics looking funky, etc. I checked in about three different browsers, but those things are so fickle...)

Also, if you get this in your reader, stop back tomorrow and update your RSS feed. My URL will be changing to http://www.mommyalwayswins.com sometime this afternoon or evening, which will break all future feeds.

*sigh* Don't you just love a new place?

Momo Fali said...

This looks fantastic! Has to be one of my favorite makeovers! I want one now.

Colleen said...

I like it...has a very 70's feel to it.

I really love it. Orange is one of my favorite colors. I am SO in need of a blog makeover!!!

Kalynne Pudner said...

This looks great! I'm so covetous!

Jeanette "Frogster" said...

Love the color combo -looks great!

eternallyhuckdoll said...

You know I adore it! Love the font and colour combos (this was my kitchen theme all through fall and winter with a little green thrown in) and the only thing I see in alignment - and not sure if it's on purpose or not - is the 'subscribe' 'contact' 'top commentators', etc section are sticking out a little to the right. BTW - I'm using Firefox.

Mommy Melee said...

The headings "Recent Posts" etc. are jumping out about 4-5 pixels to the right in Firefox.

Looks great though! The active link color (the darker rust) is a little hard to read on the brown. Everything else appears to be working just fine. I love it!

OK - I've played around a bit more and its looking good to me in Firefox AND IE, which is just about the equivalent to making a deal with the devil himself.

I really do appreciate all the feedback, so if anyone continues to see any "weirdness", by all means, let me know!!!

Flicker said...

I agree about the active link color, but I love the overall look. So fresh!

Maddy said...

Quite delightful and cheerful, well done you.
Cheers

Karen said...

It looks great!

Susie said...

It does look great!! I was going to ask who your designer was!

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

C'est moi, mademoiselle. (There, that's all the French I remember and can spell.)

Thanks all! (Can't quite find where its pulling that darker link color from - every instance I see it shows the lighter orange color...huh...gremlins?)

lynn said...

I think the new look is great!

Haven't stopped by in awhile, will have to change my reader link......and get better at commenting. I so suck at that.

Roger said...

I like the colors, very warm and welcoming. The link colors tend to blend in a bit, but you can still see them. Also, I noticed that - ugh, what are they called? The little thingies you click to fix/edit something are showing up when I view your page. I tried to click on one, and it took me to something "blogger" which put our office's firewall into a fit, so I don't know if it will actually allow someone to edit your stuff for you (i.e. hack your blog). No, I still don't know the real term, so I'm sticking with little thingies. :)

It's just beautiful! Love what you've done with the place!

A) I do like your new look--very clean, not too orangy, and FUNKY:)
B) Congrats on your cool new camera!
C) We also drove in that fog and it was awful. This weather. Sheesh. Glad you made it to and fro safely.

Love it, still, especially the colors!

The body leans kind of to the left, but that's not always an all bad thing. ;) Firefox here.

Marni's Organized Mess said...

I love it.

Kristin H. said...

It looks great Colleen. I wouldn't change a thing.

Becoming Me said...

I love it love it love it...I do have one little bitty suggestion, but it may just be my browser...but I have a hard time reading your side bar...

Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] said...

Nice! You got the header graphics fixed! I'll say, though, that the orange text on the brown banners is hard to read. That's my only helpful hint. :(

Momisodes said...

I had to do a double take! I really love the new look. Honest. It's clean and sleek. Well done! :)

Karen MEG said...

Colleen, it looks great!!!Good for you, I like the colour scheme too!

Nap Warden said...

Look at you go! Looks great!

Mishelle Lane said...

Absolutely perfect!

Red Lotus Mama said...

Looks great! I love the colors and clean look. The only thing I notice on FF3 is the that * is kind of lying on top of the first number for comments. But, that is so very minor!

Melissa said...

Love the new colors. All looks good on my end.

Nicole O'Dell said...

I love it...my blog is orange too. :)

Mama Smurf said...

Love it, Colleen!
