What is up with this blog??

I'm sorry!!

I keep changing the layout of my blog...I think I've gone through 3 in the past 2 weeks.

It's just that I can't seem to find "it." You know what I mean???

AND...just what is CRANBERRY COTTAGE?? It doesn't really give anyone a clue as to what this blog is about. Let me explain - several years ago when I began my soap-making business I struggled with a name for it and somehow along the line came up with Cranberry Cottage (I do have several Cranberry scents.) The blog came along with the soap-making, which made "Cranberry Cottage" seem appropriate. The soap business is on the back burner for the time-being, although I still have a bit in my etsy shop. So..that's the story there.

This week was a wonderful week spent enjoying the Woman Inspired Conference on Creativity. Please go to their site and check out all that they have to offer! You won't regret it!!
Before I leave you, I must show you this picture of my grandson that just begs to be shared with the world. Here he is sporting his Mr. Potato Head glasses.

What a cute pic! I like changing the look of my blog so you just enjoy trying out new things for yours.

Randomly came across your blog and very much enjoyed it.

Great pic!

And I'm digging the polka dots on the blog - great colors!

What a cute picture! I heard the creativity conference at A Woman Inspired was really good. A Woman Inspired is a great site, isn't it?

Hope you have a great weekend!

I shuffle mine around all the time. Love looking at others to get ideas, and figure I will "find" sooner or later.

Aren't grandkids the greatest!...and I love your name...Cranberry Cottage......making soap sounds very ambitious! I think I'll stick to quilts!

Your grandbaby is a cutie pie. I love the Potato Head glasses. I know what you mean about blog names and style. I go back and forth with how I want mine to be. Enjoy your weekend.

Change the look of your blog as often as you'd like - that's what I did, and I still might tweak it a bit myself. It has to represent you :) I like the name Cranberry Cottage - it's a great one if you start making soap again. I did it once, and it didn't turn out quite how I'd thought (I used lard, which I'll never use again when making soap!).

Gotta love Mr. Potatoe Head ... my kids have done the same, but with the teeth in their mouth (eek!).

Have a great weekend!

Your grandson is so cute!!! And I love the way your blog looks right now. I keep changing mine too. Currently I love the header and am keeping it but need to work on the rest of the colors.

I read on Tawna's blog that you also have a Keurig and I just had to respond. LOL I LOVE mine and I love teasing Tawna about not having one. ;)

I love your new look, and the polka dots. Love your soap too. I did a post on it. And yes, the truck does smell better, LOL.

I too love the look of your blog. And the name. Speaking of soaps, I just bought olive oil soaps at the Farmer's Market- a eucalyptus & a coconut oil scented one. The kids spent the drive home smelling them!

& Your grandson, so so cute!

Aw I love the photo of your grandson. I feel for you on getting the blog right. I lost my left sidebar last time I changed. I plan to change this weekend maybe I can get it back. Good luck with finding what you want.
Have a Blessed Weekend,

I like the look of your blog and love the name Cranberry Cottage. The name of my first painting business was Rachel Anne's Cottage....I've got a thing for cottages too, I guess!

Your grandson is adorable! I'll bet you cannot resist that guy !

I like your blog name and design. I hope you find just the right design soon.
Precious grand baby! I always thought it was hilarious when my kids put on the Mr. Potato head glasses. Keep the pictures coming!
Have a great week.
