  1. I can totally relate to the irritation that comes with having to answer the question ‘so what do you do?’ Once you’re a SAHM 😑 it’s been 2 years since I had Lilly and that question still annoys me!
    I love your logo and banner 😄 I’m thinking of getting a logo done too so this was very informative!

    1. Yep, just over two years and me too…I still haven’t really landed on an answer I’m satisfied with either…well not one that allows a conversation to continue!
      Thank you for your kind comment and oo, do! I bet you could have a lot of fun with your blog name and designs! Look forward to seeing it x

  2. I’ve always loved your blog header, it’s really memorable and the first few times I visited, I remembered I’d been here before and been impressed. So great to hear the story behind it and all the different, personal, things that inspired it.

    1. That is just completely lovely. Made my day. I always like it when I’m new to a blog and remember I’ve been there before so I’m glad this worked for you! I think the personal bits will mean I’ll like my design for longer than I perhaps would have without them, well that’s my theory anyway! Thank you for commenting X

  3. This is fascinating! I’ve always loved your blog name & reason for it – it’s very clever. I love the reason for the heart, and the rainbow top story! Lovely that it has some real personal meaning. xx #bestandworst

  4. Love the header and hearing the story behind it is really interesting. Thank you for sharing. (I just looked for a plain design and got someone to install it for me. I didn’t go for a logo as I didn’t want anything I’d get bored with too quickly)

    1. Yes I think that’s the danger isn’t it. I’m quite good at emotionally investing in things if I have to that makes sense, so I’m hoping that with I won’t get bored too quickly! Thank you for commenting x

  5. Lovely story and love your banner and the logo and colours. As I have just gone slef-hosted I am in the middle of designing a new banner – though I am going to try to do it myself -eek! Though I am quite arty so hopefully it won’t be too bad. My new site just has horrible text in a font I don’t like much at the moment so hoping it doesn’t take too long! #KCACOLS

  6. I love the hole story about how you got your blog design. The name is really good. I like it a lot. I always thought that the idea of puting the “m” on brackets and then “other” from the word mother was incredibly clever. The header is really nice as it gives it a little bit of colour. Now that you explained how did you come out with the idea I like it even more. Everything is just so nice: the bracelet with the hard, the top with those colours that ended up being a comfort blanket for your son. All is just perfect . I think the whole idea behind is so meaningful. You have done a great job. I really like it and and your blog is lovely. Thanks so much lovely for sharing your blog design story at #KCACOLS. I would love to see you again on Sunday! 🙂 x

    1. Thank you so much Franca! It’s interesting having the personal bits…I honestly don’t know if I would like the design without them, but i suppose it’s a bit of a moot point because they are there and I do like them! I like my brackets too, but it doesn’t work when you say it out loud! Thanks for hosting the fab #kcacols

  7. I love your logo. I’m a big fan of typewriter fonts. My career background is largely involved in design so this post really interests me. One day I hope to have an individual blog design rather than a freebie-off-the-peg one! Sarah x

    1. I am too and there are so many lovely typewriter fonts around aren’t there!! Sounds like you could design your own maybe? I enjoyed working with April because it almost, almost felt as though I did design my own but she made it happen where I couldn’t. Thank you for commenting, I’ve enjoyed a little gander round your blog…have you seen my creative mothers guest series…it may be something you’d be interested in taking part in? x
