A New Look for a New Year...

Happy happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a great time saying good bye to 2012 and hello to 2013. We had a lovely relaxing evening with friends at our place before wandering down the road to watch the fireworks off the Sydney Harbour Bridge at midnight. A glass of champagne, a bit of cleaning up and then to bed.

I also hope everyone was spoilt on Christmas day. We spent it eating and watching movies while I got started on making items for my Etsy shop which I plan to reopen at the end of the month (!!).

I'll be posting a little 2012 Sewing Review in the next few days but first wanted to announce my blog make over and name change (as some of you have noticed already!). It's something I've really been meaning to do for a very long time now but just hadn't gotten around to it.


I've updated my name from Pretty Little Pictures to Jennifer Lauren Vintage and updated my web address to www.jenniferlaurenvintage.com. You will still be redirected through to my new address from my old one though (www.the-paperdoll.blogspot.com).

I'm still working on some of the stand alone pages but in the next few weeks I'll hopefully put a Tutorials page and a Sewing List page up as well (having my to do list posted has been great in helping me to stay focussed on current projects rather than get swept up in the anticipation of new projects).

And speaking of Pages, I'm planning a whole new Links page too. Some of the links I currently have are really out of date, so if you have any suggestions of blogs to read (or think your own might fit nicely in my links section) just let me know in the comments.

I have to say a huge thanks to Tasha for the design, she was amazing with my endless questions and really made the whole thing go so smoothly. If you need anything done design wise for your blog (Blogger or Wordpress) give her a shout!

Again, Happy New Year lovely people!  I hope the year holds everything you are wishing for and more...
