Happy New Year!
We’re 10 days in and I’m welcoming the new year with open arms, love, and kindness. For the world, our surroundings, myself. Over Christmas break I read the amazing book, Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton, and it has brought me to a new level of life. For this new year, I am on the hunt to further explore doing all things with purpose, truthfulness, and love…
With the turn of the calendar, I’m excited to share 2 new bits of excitement….
First up, I made some changes to the site – yes, the website you are reading right now. And the second ‘new’, is a magazine that I am featured in this month that I am thrilled to dish on the details about.
A few weeks before the end of the year, I was getting a hankering to freshen up the site. It had been a few years since the last update and I was yearning for a ‘remodel’…
I was thinking maybe a new color palette, or new font, or layout. After I evaluated what was working, and what wasn’t, I chose to make a few simple updates which included a new home page + logo + header design.
The website > www.JennaBurger.com < which is the main page used to be a hybrid for my blog AND design services. In the past year since taking a step back from the blog to devote more time to expanding my interior design business, I thought it made sense to make the main page more user friendly for all, so I designed a clean + simple landing page where readers / inquirers could choose to go to the page they want > DESIGN SERVICES, PORTFOLIO (pictures of my design projects), or the BLOG.
If you haven’t seen the new main page, here it is:
I also revamped the Portfolio page, which features many of the projects that I’ve created.
Thinking about wanting to freshen up your home this year? Check out the many spaces I’ve designed – I’d love to work together…
The BLOG page is similar to what you saw before with new posts on the left and a sidebar with links to awesome DIY projects I created on the right.
What is new on the BLOG page (and all the pages) is the header design – Jenna Burger Design, Layers of Inspired Style. A new layout + fonts for the header created a stylish, clean update!
Poke around and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy + feel inspired!
NEW MAGAZINE FEATURE
In late December, I received an exciting email from Better Homes and Gardens that there would be a new magazine to hit stands within the coming weeks called I Did It. After a squeal + an embarrassing happy dance (thank goodness I was home alone), I was thrilled to find out that the magazine was developed out of the beloved column in the main Better Homes and Gardens magazine.
Until recently, The I Did It column (well actually full page article) was always the last page of the main magazine. I was featured on the page, along with my 2 older kids, in the January 2014 issue – wow, that’s 3 years ago already, time flies.
Here was the article + the blog post I wrote on my experience of the photoshoot:
Look how little my kids looked back then (this was photographed in Spring 2013, so almost 4 years ago)
In the recent email I received from BHG with the news of the new magazine, they made mention that my Central Command Center would be featured. Eek.
Even though this area is so small at only 30″ wide, we still use it everyday and it still is incredibly functional keeping us on track to know where we are going when…
Certainly 2 exciting ways to start off the year. Cheers to a blessed year ahead…
