Spanking new look!

Yes, I finally did it! I finally gave this blogsite a much needed revamp.

When I first started blogging actively less than a year ago, the sharing was very different. As I journey through life balancing my many roles, I realised that my sharing in this blog has changed too. I wanted a new look for my blog but more than that, I wanted a clearer voice. 

It was a soul searching journey for me as I took a step back. The revamp is a more than just a new "look" and selection of colours and font. I kept things quiet for a while, thinking through and hard about what I wanted to communicate in this humble space of mine. 

Each element here reflects certain bits of me - my personality, my style, my voice. So to celebrate this new look, I would like to do my first ever giveaway! 

As we are embarking on a composer study unit homeschool theme for the moment, I would like to give away a BRAND NEW copy of "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Composers - Peter Tchaikovsky". 

Dumpling loves this series as the cartoons in it are hilarious (some adult humour too!). From a homeschooling perspective, it delivers the information in a short succinct manner without getting too "dry". It is suitable for a read aloud for the younger kids and perhaps up to 7 - 8 YO for independent reading. :)

Here's a review from the Amazon page (link as above): 

All of the Getting to Know the World's Greatest Composers books are good. Tchaikovsky's is full of information AND the funniest cartoons! I read it before I read it to my daughter and I laughed out loud while learning at the same time - Moviemaniac

  4. Spanking koolicious!

  5. Liked your FB page :)
    Congratulations on your new look, it is pleasing and I love the colours :)

  6. The new look is very sweet and I like the colour combination. Well the Tree tell me that Tree represent the mother and the little hearts represents children. Lol

    The Tree catches my attention. ;)

  7. Love how it's colourful, yet clean. Lovely!

  8. You say "Journeying with my heart on the sleeve" - so the tree to me is like your sleeve/shirt, and the hearts on the tree signify the varied feelings you have about this journey of motherhood :)

  9. i just discovered your blog, and enjoyed your posts so much that I have been digging into your achives!

    The new combi of colours speak of someone with creativity, a good sense of aesthetics and someone who loves to do art and craft. As for the tree, i think thr growing branches symbolise the 'journey' of motherhood, the personal growth that you experience during this journey - with the hearts hanging from the branches symbolising that open expression and sharing of all the emotions and thoughts that you experience during motherhood.

  10. I really like the tree and the hearts logo! So nurturing and sweet and somewhat has a magical and musical touch to it !!
