Goodbye Kiddo TV, hello Garden Variety :)

Yep, I changed ole bloggy's name, or "rebranded" as the serious bloggy folk might say :) Awhile ago, I explained why I first chose Kiddo TV, you can reference the post here if you like.  But hey, it's been a year since I started this thing! Feels pretty good to have stuck with a project for a whole year, gotta say.  So, I just had a strong urge to change the name to something that more specifically relates to or reflects me.  I chose the phrase "garden variety" because it's an idiom that means commonplace, or y'know - ordinary, and that's truly what I am, just one regular, anonymous gal out of a sea of millions.

As for the new blog design, all of the artwork past and present was created by Rachel Sullivan, who has graciously produced many lovely illustrations for me. You can see more of Rachel's work I've posted previously here, here, and here.  Anyhow, let me know what you think about the change, or this blog in general? I'd appreciate any comment or criticism at all guys - help me grow this thing!


  1. I love Rachel's work and what she did here is adorable! I love the new name and design. I've been thinking about my changing mine in the new year as well. We shall see...

  2. Love your re-brand. It's totally you!

  3. I love the new name and the redesign, you've always had the best headers! (Her artwork is gorgeous and it really fits with you and your blog.) I think I like the new colors best of all, they're so soothing. :) And congrats on almost a year of blogging!
