My New Site Design with Restored 316: I’m Lovin’ It


Notice something a little different here today? (if you are reading via email or reader, you may want to click over)

Lauren at Restored 316 Designs and I have been working hard on a fresh new space for! 

restored 316 design

Let me tell you, Lauren is a real trooper! lol she put up with all of my indecision (about the only decision I could make for a long time was what I didn’t like) she helped me take my vision and make it a reality without losing the feel of the TidyMom brand.

Lauren was patient and never anything but kind!  She has a great system for keeping you informed on what is going on with your design, contact was excellent and we even chatted over the phone several times to make sure we were both clear on everything.

For the most part, many things are still in the same place, just look a little different.  But take a look around, we are still tweaking a few little things, but please let me know if you see something that doesn’t look right!

  31. LOVE your site. I receive your emails and your blog in reader as a backup. I even pinned your logo to my “blogs I like” on pinterest to cover all my bases. I will have lots of fun exploring it today since the smoke from the fires here is so bad that I’m stuck in the guest room with my laptop, inhalers, mask and eye drops. I hope I don’t have to escape to my Mom’s or sisters’ houses in other states as I did last year. I really didn’t think fire season would be so bad this year. Sigh….I had asthma!
