Welcome to Hello! Hooray!

I’m so excited that my new site is now up and running! Welcome to my new-look blog with a brand new name too: Hello! Hooray! There are several reasons why I decided to have a little update – let’s talk about the name first. When I started blogging a couple of years ago, it was just for fun. I came up with the name and set up my wordpress blog, and I never thought it would become such a big part of my life. I also didn’t realise that someone else had the same name as me (but with a different URL), or that I really should have checked that out a bit more! Two years later and I’ve realised that this is one of my passions and I’d love to make a living out of it (if that’s possible). So switching my blog over and having my own unique name was a must. I wanted something shorter (!!) and less specific – and the fact that I went part time in my day job last year to focus on this meant that my old blog name just didn’t make sense anymore!


Although the look and name have changed, I’ll still be blogging about things that I love to make and do. I’m also looking to have guest blog posts by other bloggers too, so there is lots to look forward to! I hope you like my new blog – I’d love to hear what you think!

    Hello Clare, after taking the whole month of August off, I’m buzzing around to see what everyones been up to. I’m loving the colour of your comment box here and the graphic design of your new logo. How fun to be branding a whole new look. Congratulations and good luck with everything.

      Thank you so much, Kelly! I’m so pleased with how it’s going – still got a few tweaks to make, but I’m getting there! I kind of took August off too (well, I was re-doing my site really!) so it’s good to be back! We got back from our holiday today so I’m busy catching up as well. Have you settled in to your house now? xx
