Our New Look

Yes, we got a makeover!

What do you think of our new look?

We’re really excited to finally have a new design here at “5 Minutes for Mom”. For quite a while now, we’ve been meaning to change our dear blog’s look and feel, but we’ve been so busy running the site, we didn’t have time to change its clothes.

So… finally we decided to just go for it.

There are so many fantastic blog designers available these days, and when we asked for your referrals, we had so many to choose from that it was hard to decide.

Finally we selected a work-at-home mom named Avie whose company is called Fritzer Designs.

And we can definitely tell you that Avie is the most patient woman in the entire world!!!

Avie and her DaughterWorking with us on a design is no easy task. We are terribly picky and we never really know what we want. But Avie was such a joy to work with and she persevered through all our requests to try this and that.

She’s also created for us a set of new buttons that you can choose from if you want to change the button you use to link to us. (You don’t have to switch to the new button from the old… it’s just an option.)

And if you have a store or website listed with us where we’ve given you an award, we have a new set of award images that you can choose from. (For the award images, please contact us. Also, please note that we don’t give out awards to personal blogs, just stores and websites.)

If you’d like to change the button that you currently have on your blog linking back to us, you can now use one of these.

Just pick a button and copy the code below it.

Thanks again to Avie for her great work and undying patience!

We are thrilled with the Avie’s work and we whole heartedly recommend Fritzer Designs for your next design project.

    The new ‘look’ is awesome. I was wondering what the settings are for your margins…or whatever they are called. When I pull up your site on my computer all the buttons and links on the left sidebar are all the way at the bottom. I probably need to have a widescreen monitor or something. Other than thati it is fabulous!

    Funny…I just pulled it up on Firefox, and it looks fine. It must be the way it is viewed on Internet Explorer. I am not tech savvy enough to figure it out.

    I love it! it’s actually similar to the one i had in my head for my own site but since i was designing it myself, i didn’t have too much to choose from. very cutesy!!!

    Thanks everyone for all your comments and feedback.

    We’re so happy you like the new design!

    Crissybug, that’s frustating that the sidebars aren’t showing on your IE. Are you on a Mac?

    Is it displaying properly for everyone else?

    Very nice ladies. The site has much better usability now, and looks designed. It’s tough to make the choice, isn’t it? Our sites grow organically, and then we take that step to get them designed.

    I heartily approve. Good job Avie.

    Love the face lift. Your designer did a fabulous job on it. It has the same spirit as the last look, but as a new young fun feel! Good job all around.

    I love it! I’ve already changed the button on my site to the new one. I love the flowers and the pink (my favorite color). It’s so fun!
