Weekend Scoop: New Design Edition

by Kay Lynn

After nearly two years of my self-designed mad men look, it was time for an update at Bucksome Boomer. I even hired a professional who put up with my vague instructions and slow follow-up.  Thanks, Sharon!  Check out the new design and let me know what you think.

I like it. The site has a throw back feeling without any tackiness. It is very clean and organized.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I was ready for a change, but it is still a surprise every time I go to my site and see it! Tony, I’ll send you an email to answer your question.

I did a “double take” when your site loaded…I thought I typed in your url wrong! The site looks great.

Thanks! I’m starting to get used to it now after a week.
