New Blog Post Series... and I'm going away...

Well, I will be gone for the weekend at the Father/Daughter retreat... my dear Dad and I are leaving right after an early lunch, and I'll be back sometime around noon on Sunday. :) I'm very excited about it! :)

To give you all something to do while I'm away - so you won't miss me too much, lol - I would like your opinion on something.

I'm doing a new series on my blog called "Chirps from the Barnyard", as we have baby chicks arriving early sometime next week. I will be following their progress and growth on this blog with pictures and even videos of the cute little chickies! :)

I designed two "Post Headers", which is a picture that appears at the top of every "Chirps from the Barnyard" post, and for the life of me I can't decide which I like better! I'm sort of leaning towards the pink one, but I love the other one too. What do you think? Should I alternate between the two, or just do one of them?

Option 1.
Option 2.

I'll be designing a button soon that you can put on your sidebar to go with the post series!
Goodbye for now... see you when I get back! :)


  1. Hi Julia! I hope you have a wonderful time this weekend. My family arrived there last night and I believe they are already having a great time and it hasn't even started yet.

    I like both of your choices too. I like the pink coloring, but I really like the "when we were young" line. Maybe you could make the blue one pink. ? Very nice either way. I look forward to reading about their little adventures.

    Tell your Momma hello for me.

  2. Hi Julia! I cannot wait until we leave!
    About the chicks- I think I like option two. (brown & turquoise are 2 of my favorite colors though:) But decide with what you like best!

  3. Hi! My name is Zoe. I don't think I have ever commented here before now, but I have read your blog a few times. I like the second one.

  4. i think I like the pink one, but i LOVE them (LIKE THEM A LOT) both

  5. Hi Julia!! I like both!! Have a GREAT TIME WITH YOUR DAD! I'd LOVE to go with my Dad. But, right now we're not in a position to go. I'm really close with Both my parents and I tell them evverything!! I'm always talking to them. I know you and your Dad will have A WONDERFUL TIME!! I think you should alternate between the two of them. Maybe one week of post's will be the pink and the other blue? Or something like that.~Lissie
    here's my site:
    my parent's site: (it's a joke about the "brazen husseys" because our last name is don't think it's something terrible. Lol. My Dad is a practical joker:)

  6. I like #2 better. Have a good flight! My Dad and I are already here and it's been raining REALLY hard! LOL!

  7. Have a blessed time at the father/daughter retreat Julia, and come back with pictures too share:)!!

    I think that I like the first one best~

  8. Hi Miss Julia! :)

    I can't wait to read your "Chirps from the Backyard" blog series! My family and I have been wanting to get baby chicks sometime, so I can't wait to see yours! :)

    The pink header is my favorite too, though both are so cute! :)

  12. I LOVE the blue one! It's super cute... =D But... think that alternating could be cool. Give it a little variety.

  13. Hi Julia! Thank you for the award! That was really sweet of you to do that!
    Oh, I can't wait to see your new blog! Hmmmm...I love both post headers, but I think I like the pink one the best:) You are AMAZING at creating such cute things on scrapblog:)

    Have a GREAT time at your father daughter retreat!

  14. I really like both of them. It was hard for me to pick one out but I think I like the pink one best. It's so adorable and "springish"!:) I hope you have great time at the retreat!

  15. Option 2 is my favorite, but of course the other is nice, as well. I hope you have a good, edifying time with your Daddy!

    In Jesus,

  16. I definitely like option 1 better, but they are both adorable!

  17. Hi Julia! I was at the Vision Forum Father Daughter Retreat, as well! Hope you had a blessed time!

    I like the blue one! But both of them are bery neat!
