Smart start of our blog makeover

1) We have done it! Taken the first smart officially step for Lifecruiser’s blog makeover! It’s a deal!

2) We’re absolutely thrilled! Jumping up and down of excitement! Corking up the champagne bottle! Spraying the whole place with gigglewater!

3) I was pretty sure of which one I wanted to hire already before, butt as I’m very nit-picking I simply had to check around a bit at other blog designers too. Just to chill down my conscious…

4) And…. after checking around at blog designers all over the blogosphere, I finally came back to the number one choice I had in mind all the time from the beginning, so I could have saved myself a lot of work…. *giggles*

5) You’re all dying to know now, I know, so let me just say: Leanne, the goddess of blog designs has accepted!!!

6) If you don’t know her: Leanne Wildermuth, the extremely talented, humorous, super duper master photographer, painter, blog designer and blogger Leanne. Haven’t you seen her work? Oh, cruiser, then you have missed one of the big in the blogosphere!!!!

7) She makes so wonderful paintings, very realistic ones of animals, people, candy or peoples pets - Debbie ordered of her cats remember? I tell you these are real eye candy!

8) Don’t take a look at Leanne’s portfolio, because she’s a true artist by nature and you might get stuck there for ever!!! And the photography makes me green of envy!!! Especially of the Hummingbirds….

9) I love the fact that she has very reasonable prices too, considering that this is handmade pure artist work. No fast art exactly. She is so dedicated to her work and also use to show the proceeding in some of her ordered work at her blog. It’s amazing to follow one of her paintings from scratch!

10) The blog makeover will be started around the beginning of October, so some time in the middle of October she should be ready with it - if nothing unexpected happens.

11) I had a loooong list with whishes, so I hope she don’t think it’s too much steering from the Captain ;-)

12) Leanne was also the one that started the meme Thursday Thirteen and how fun haven’t that been to all the participants? Talking about spreading bloggers love hah?

13) More details about the blog makover will come later!!! Especially when all the FUN begins!!! Oh, and of course we will have a blog warming party to celebrate the new ship interior!!!

    Hi Captain Lifecruiser!

    Well you had to figure Murphy’s Law would set in wouldn’t you? Of course it did. I had NO ACCESS TO THE INTERNET WHILE I WAS IN MAUI. Can you believe it?

    So I just posted my first day. We’ll just cruise Maui like I did every day…how’s that?

    I spent four hours with some knucklehead one night who had me do the same thing over and over and over again…till I figured out he didn’t konw what the heck he was doing!!!!!!!!! But I have about 200 pictures…we’re in good shape. I get to relive my trip with you and my readers.

    Course if they come back…oh well!

    I am very curious about the result ! I know Leanne because she did little cat cartoons for me for my “Cats on Tuesday” group each tuesday, but then she hadn’t time anymore.
    We leave around 9 am for our trip to the Garda Lake, with one overnight stop around Munich. It’s 1200 km from here and I don’t want to arrive there half dead, because we had always done it in one shot, but now at our age, lol !!! So suitcase is packed I just have to disconnect and pack my computer. It will be the first time since 20 years exactly (last time was 1987) that I put my feet on Italian soil again ! I had had an overdose, but now I am healed !
