I felt it was time for a change. Time for a new blog design. I wasn’t completely happy with my old design and I thought I really needed something that would look professional, fun and colorful all at the same time. I have So Many Ideas for new blog posts. You have no idea. I thought: a new start needs a new design.
You might have noticed, it’s a little quiet on my blog now. But I have a good reason! Because on July 18th our son ”Rens” was born . He is super healthy and really a wonderful guy. It feels a bit unreal that something so beautiful can come out of my belly but I am so proud! And not only I, of course, Tom is also completely happy.
I really love holding the little man in my arms and I enjoy our time together. The difficult pregnancy I had is still on my mind but that difficult time was absolutely worth it. What are nine months of my life when I can give someone else a whole new one? I think I may love him even more because of that. Our sweet boy did not come easily!
Regarding this blog: Do not be afraid that I will be neglecting it. I’m going to resume with full speed and I am planning to spend even more time on it. My perfect situation would be to work completely in home so that I can be there for Rens. And that moment is coming, because my motivation has grown even more with the birth of that little guy!

I’m really busy at the moment thinking about what I want to do with this blog. I want it to be more inspirational. I want more recipes, more DIY and certainly more fashion. I also want to do more than one article every day and better photographs. The problem is: I only have so much time. I already have one great idea that will be a 365 day project, starting in Januari. But I would love to hear what you want too. So tell me, what would you love to see here on By Wilma? XO Wilma
Sometimes you just want something else for your blog. You know, something a little lighter and happier. That’s how I felt anyway. So today I’m introducing to you my new blog look! More color and finally I designed a real logo for By Wilma. What do you think about this blog restyle? XO Wilma
I really like to experiment with materials. I had this new frame lying around that I really wanted to paint. It was fake dark wood with a small golden border. Not pretty… I decided to make the frame look old. It already had the shape of an old frame so in my mind it just needed a little bit of paint. And some techniques to make it look really old!
