You’re going to want to update your bookmarks… The pink toque craft blog has officially moved to its new location at http://craftblog.pinktoque.com.  Please make a note of it and update your bookmarks!

Obviously a lot has changed around here in the past 24 hours or so!  I decided to switch my blog over to a WordPress hosted blog versus the old Blogger format and site I was using previously.  By hosting the craft blog myself using WordPress’ engine I have total control over themes, layout and design.  Speaking of which, I hope you like the new layout. :smile: The theme is called “Desk Mess” by Laptop Geek, but as you can see, I made a lot of graphic changes to it so that it looks more like what my crafty desk “mess” looks like. ;) Some things around here are the same just in a new format, such as the navigation on the right, but two new things I’ve put together include the pages that you can access across the top of the site.  One is for my freebies which talks about my TOU and compiles all of my freebies in one spot so you can quickly sift through anything I’ve given away on my blog previously.  You can also read a little bit more about me on the about page. Fun stuff!

Anyway, to celebrate the blog move I of course have a freebie for you.  I loved the Sushi Bar freebie kit by Irene Alexeeva so much (mmmmmm sushi!) that I decided to create a quick page with it.  Please note that the freebie is for personal use only and all of the graphics used are from Irene’s kit and not designed by myself.  Only the layout was designed by me.  Included in the freebie package you’ll find Irene’s TOU along with mine and the preview image of her Sushi Bar kit that you can get from her blog.

Prepare for more freebies ahead this week as I give away more and more stuff in celebration of the new blog host and format.  Please be patient as I’m still tweaking a few things, though.  I think I successfully exported everything from Blogger and imported it here with WordPress properly, including all of my previous posts and any comments, but if you see anything strange or missing please don’t hesitate to let me know!  That also brings me to my final note … with the blog hosting move I’ve also changed my craft blog email address.  If you have any questions or comments, feel free to direct them to craftblog at pinktoque dot com .

:lol: I almost forgot, you can download the Sushi Bar Quick Page HERE!  And be sure to go over to Irene’s blog to nab her beautiful Sushi Bar kit to go with it.  Hope you have a great week!  See you back here real soon with more goodies to give away.
