Welcome to the New and Improved Calamity Kate's Kitchen

Hello friends, 
It has been a few weeks since my last blog post but I am back with new recipes, an updated blog (I am still working on organizing all of the recipes) a new blog with a fresh, clean, modern blog design, a new logo and more.  Yay!

So, if you haven't noticed, Calamity Kate's Kitchen just had a redesign. I have been working with Christin Thomas. She has worked so hard to get the new design up and running, even though I had her add in additional cool features, like the drop down recipe box and the front landing page. It is super sweet that we now have a landing page. The landing page has already confused a few people, but to access the blog posts just push the Blog button on the menu and you will see all of the blog posts. Christin is a gem and so easy to work with! She has done such a beautiful job with the whole blog and adding my super awesome slide show. I can't wait to see what you all think of the new designs! 
Also, I have been working with the very talented, Bitsy Matatall McCann to design the new logo for Calamity Kate's Kitchen. She is a genius! We communicated with a phone call and  and several emails and look how perfect the new logo is and we have two different color choices. This one will be a keeper! I am still finishing up with Bitsy, but Calamity Kate's Kitchen will have a blog button, a new logo and (as soon as I get some time and money) CKK with have a new facebook page. The facebook page should be done before the end of June!  

In the few weeks since you last heard from me, life has changed. My dad fell and had surgery last Thursday and they re-attached his ripped quadriceps tendon on his left leg. So he is in a immobilizing cast for the next 5-6 weeks. After that he will start physical therapy. So my family is taking shifts hanging out with dad the next 6 weeks or so and helping him.  Today I am driving to their condo in Indianapolis (it is the only home that is on one floor and has an elevator in the lobby)  to hang out with him. I am bringing a Apples to Apples and Monopoly to play. While he sleeps I will continue working on organizing some more recipes for our new, drop down recipe box!

So.... what do you think of all of this change? Please leave me a comment on which color logo you like best: blue/green/purple or blue/blue.  Thanks everyone and have a wonderful day!!!        Cheers, Kate
