My BIG news.

I am so excited to tell you my big news today...and I tell you with a bit of nervousness because I hope you will be along for the ride!  A little while back I had this idea (about 7 months ago)..and then I got pregnant and I knew this idea had to be put into action!

Coming up in the next month, I am going to be transitioning over to wordpress with a new name. 

Introducing:
Kiki and Company will be a little piece of neighborhood on the web where you will be able to stop by to read, be inspired, share, shop and connect with others!

I hope to keep all my loyal, amazing readers and add a bunch at the same time!  So why a new name and blog? Well, I am full of these crazy ideas. (But you knew that, right?!) I wanted a platform to be able to bring on some contributors in different areas that affect all of us (and most of us are women, right?!..though I would love it if men were reading this too!).  So starting tomorrow (eek!) I will be introducing the contributors that will start out here on Kiki Creates and transition over with me to Kiki and Company.

The contributors will be posting on topics under these categories:

Fashion/Makeup
Cooking
Health/Fitness
and
Photography

Of course, I will still be going strong with DIY/Crafts which will include projects, printables, furniture makeovers, tutorials and everything in between.  I am excited to announce that I will be beginning a free monthly newsletter to subscibers, which will always include a bonus project/tutorial or project/free printable.  My shop will also be connected with the new site, so you can do all in one!

BUT, as always, the thing I am most excited about is bringing YOU along for the ride! There will be days for posts featuring YOU, there will be a live chat going on right on the blog page to keep in touch, and the whole reason I wanted it named Kiki and Company is to let you know that I want YOU a part of it all! I want you to be our company...to take off your shoes, so to speak, relax and enjoy some time fun reading, shopping and connecting time for YOU!

As the days approach, I will let you in on more detail, but for now, I hope you know how much I SO appreciate you stopping by my little piece of blogland each day. I love hearing from you..love checking out your blogs..and LOVE making new bloggy friends.

Any part of the new site you are excited about?
