New Design and a Thank You

It was time for Cannelle Et Vanille to get a new look. Like Mrs. French said… “a blog cannot have too many outfits”. Well said. I started this blog only a few months ago with little expectations, but it really has turned into something very special in my life.

All the credit for the beautiful banner and new layout goes to Kaytlyn of Beneficial Design. Thank you for being patient with me and capturing the essence of this blog and my personal style. Thank you very, very much Kaytlyn. And I also want to thank my friends Jill, Amaia and Nadia for putting up with my indecisiveness.

And finally, thanks to all of you out there who keep coming back and inspiring me everyday. Do you like it?…

  29. enza says:

    it’s time to change for me too.
    and I love the way your blog looks like.
    I’m trying to set big photoes but setting a large version it’s not big enough like yours.

    what can I do?
    I’ll be glad having some suggestions from you and others

    If I think when I’ve started (not blog) but publishing photos on a cooking forum…oh God.
    all my compliment
