Look who’s ONE !!!

When I started my blog a year ago, I wasn’t sure I’d make it past a couple of months. Today (June) my blog is one year old! (woo-hoo!!!) It has been a lovely year. A year of great learning. I’ve met some interesting people along the way, made new friends and had a lot of fun.

No birthday is complete without some cake and presents! (and some tequila! hehehe) So my special treat to my blog is a new logo. Starting tomorrow (my minions are lazy bums, still at work tweaking things) Shots and Socks will have a new identity!

Theย ‘design’ journey!
The first draft:

This was my first draft, I sketched it over a year ago. I had an idea of what I wanted – the tequila worm with his sombrero on & some sock alphabets (trust me when I say that searching for ‘sock alphabets’ on google can be frustrating and a bit scandalizing – what are people up to?)

The ‘make do & move along’ design:

Since I don’t have the design capabilities required, I made do with this little black & white logo that I put together myself.

The birthday present:

Then I came across this lovely lady – Maria from StyleGraphicsDesign who patiently heard me out, looked thru my sketches, put up with my endless bickering (did I mention how patient she is? Bless her) and designed my new logo! Like I promised in my first post – I wanted my logo to be fun, happy and colorful (I tried not to go overboard tho!)

I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has stopped by during the year. Without the love, support and feedback you guys send my way, I’d just be doing my own thing, rambling to myself! It feels nice to hear from people who have read my blog. I appreciate all the emails and comments – thank you & bless you.

Over the year, I’ve really enjoyed writing. Below are just a few of my absolute favorite posts:

For those of you who want to know why the name ‘Shots and Socks’ ??? may I please direct you to my about page. (Nope, I do not enjoy Tequila with my socks on!)
