New Header for Mom

I had great fun this past week creating a new header for a popular blog called:
A Mother in Israel

laundry and squeegeeIf you are interested in parenting, breastfeeding, interviews with other bloggers, life in Israel, burkas or potato kugel, mom in Israel has a lot going on.

Mom emailed me a variety of pictures; the final header has abundant, colorful fruit in a market, a child’s tricycle, challah, a laundry basket and squeegee, and a boy in a cap at the beach. I asked my children to review the header before forwarding the final version; my daughter remarked the bike looked like it was in the market and the laundry looked like it was on the beach! Bravo, daughter. Great to have assistants like you.

A few of my favorites:

boy at the beachFinally, here are links to two very touching posts:
My Aliyah Part I
and My Aliyah Part II. In these posts she talks about the sudden death of her mother, loneliness and grief, and making friends in a new place.

She is funny, personable, and informative. I hope you’ll enjoy her blog as much as I do.

Mother in Israel,

It's late Saturday night. I have three ideas for posts in my head. I only have time to type one. Yours was definitely the most enjoyable, so it won! My pleasure.

On the PS-Uh, oh, Jewish geography time. I'll wait until my husband wakes up and ask him if he can guess.

Hey, Tzip! A blast from the past! Now in the present!

Google Reader, Google Reader, learn to use Google Reader. Easy to keep up with multiple blogs. But addictive.

And now for the non-frumslang speaking audience, i.e. the vast majority of folks:

I thought I recognized that Leora W style! There was something familiar about it before I realized you had designed it.
Looks great, and the blog is really enjoyable (even for a non-mom like me).
