Sunday Share #31 - Currently + some Exciting News!

Hi there, how are you? How's your week been? 

I have some exciting news...no, I'm not pregnant or engaged...it's something 'blog' related - I bought my own domain www.teacherbytrademotherbynature.com. Woohoo! 

I created this blog almost a year ago*. I wanted a space of my own, a place for me to share tidbits of my life, home & family, and share creative ideas. A place where my readers can be inspired, be creative and be themselves.
*My Facebook page was created in May 2014, and the blog was created in September 2014.

Last week, I saw GoDaddy was having a Special -"Buy your domain for less than $1.50" - it was something I couldn't pass up. It was an opportunity for me to branch out and make my blog MORE real and professional. So I bought it and my blog is now a .COM, not blogspot.co.nz. It's such a cool feeling to know I own my blog name! It's all mine. 

To celebrate my new domain, I decided to give my blog a makeover. I have made several changes to my blog over the past 10+ months of blogging, however this time I did a total redesign of Teacher by trade Mother by nature. Oh-so pretty!
The New and Improved Teacher by trade Mother by nature
I absolutely LOVE the look of my blog, and best of all - I re-designed it myself. Well, I downloaded this gorgeous template, and edited the HTML code to suit my new look. I designed & craeted my own blog header (on PicMonkey). I have designed all of them actually but this is, by far, my favourite. I also created a grab-a-button (found in the sidebar) and chose a girly, chic & professional colour scheme.

Please feel free to have a look around - there is some pretty cool stuff happening on this blog. It is a work-in-progress and I am going back through all my posts and updating them. I am really proud of my little space in the blog-o-sphere. 
What do YOU think of the new design? 

Other than buying my own domain and re-designing my blog (pretty exciting stuff if you are a blogger), here is what I am currently watching, making, feeling, planning, organising and loving. 

Watching: my little boy sleeping in his cot, in his OWN room! My son has been sleeping in a port-a-cot for the past 6 months. From open homes, to moving, and staying with friends, Master M is finally back in his cot (which was originally Miss B's 10 years ago) and he is sleeping in his own room. (tear). I had it in my head that he would be in with us until, at least, Christmas, however it didn't work out like that - the first day/night sleep in our new home, was in HIS room. He is actually sleeping better on his own, so it's been a blessing. I still miss him though, even though is just behind the wall. 

Making: DIY: Homemade Colour Book - I made this book when Master M was 5 months old, a year later and he still loves reading it. 

Feeling: fantastic! That.is.all

Planning: to unpack the last of the boxes that are inside. You wouldn't think we have only been here a week, I have pretty much unpacked the whole house. Although, I still have the office to unpack (it's detached from the house) - it is going to be a BIG job! I am quietly excited about setting up my office. eek!

Organising: my Pantry, Wardrobe & Linen Cupboard this week. Amazing! I shared the below photos on my Facebook page. And it has motivated me to start a new series 'Organising My Home' - Sharing how I, well, you guessed it, organise my home and also sharing some 'quick tips' of how you can too.  Watch this space!

Loving: my home, my family and my blog (oh I really do - it is my happy place).

How are you FEELING? What are you LOVING? Share what you are currently up to in the comments. Have a great week.
