Make-Over

I killed some time today that I didn't really have redoing the blog... I desperately needed a break from things I should have been doing for work...

If found some fantastic Russia-themed scrapbooking supplies that I used to make my header at this site: scrapyourtrip.com.

When I get a chance, I'll do something with the background. (I'm looking for a textured white linen background). It was way too busy having a pattern on both sides of the blog once I added the colorful header; that's why I removed it.

Really cute.

My scrapping friend goes to scrapyourtrip.com to buy scrapbook supplies.

Hi MoscowMom

Sorry to contact you via this comment box, but I can't find another way to get in touch. We are building dozens of city guides for expats, which we hope will become the foremost online guides for expats moving and living abroad. We have a guide to Moscow - www.expatarrivals.com/russia/moscow/moving-to-moscow - which needs further expansion and improvment and we are looking for contributors to help with this.

Please let me know if this may be of interest. It could also be a way to promote your blog if this was of interest.

We would also love to interview you if this was of interest. See: http://www.expatarrivals.com/article/interview-with-amanda-an-american-living-in-moscow

I hope to hear from you.

Regards,

Tom

PS - you have an interesting blog!

Wow! Thanks so much! This is my favorite "look" yet! And I rather like the simplicity. Often the backgrounds overwhelm.

I am not usually driven to re-do mine, but have really been feeling the urge, so I am super-appreciative of the link!

And - oh, my gosh!!!!! I want to give you a big hug for sharing that cooking blog!!! And the kids would do likewise.

The recipes on there are so "normal" compared to the Russian cookbooks I own, and of course I appreciate the US measurements. I made one of the dishes the other night and Ilya gave it the highest compliment, "This is like my grandother's."

OK - I'm totally confused. HOW did you make your header? I've always used a site that was intended for web-scrapping... I was surprised to find actual paper.

So how did you do that? Cut and past in publisher, or what?
