    A New Look

    For Spring.

    It's not perfect and there's bits that annoy me, and it's probably a wee bit girlier than i'd like, but i'm self-taught-by-tweaking and no web-designer.

    Helping Crafty fix her blog made me think 'gee, it's time for a change', and then I stumbled upon a flickr tool that converts your photos into blogheaders ( yes, that's my photo in the header, and i'm mighty pleased with that bit ! ), so I had to go play.

    Am loving flickr at the moment.
    Discovering so much, and had a photo of mine used ( borrowed with permission and cited ) for a foodie website.

    Also found pics of my new nursery on a French blog, and had to translate the page to make sure they liked the images rather than saying "ah, poo, these Australians with their crap baby rooms, pass me my Marlboros and a wheel of Brie"

    Anyway, i'd like to simplify the look further, perhaps just a header on a plain coloured backdrop to write upon, but that will have to come with time.

    I'm done tonight.

    I think your header is lovely. The rich colors are beautiful.

    dancingmorganmouse said...

    ooh so clever, but how do you make the header go in? (I'm sure I've just breached blog etiquette by asking but I don't care)

    shula said...

    Beautiful.

    I just lost half an hour playing with that tool.

    And it's all your fault.

    Victoria said...

    Nice work. Your selected colours work harmoniously with your photo.

    Loverly!! You sneaked this in while I wasn't looking. That is a great header! I would love to be able to do stuff like that!

    Very lovely! That Flickr photo tool is pretty fun! I will have to bookmark that!

    I like the header. It's very relaxing or Martha Stewart

    Suse said...

    Noice. I need a picture in my header if only I can get my computer and Flickr talking to each other ...

    And I had a similar experience. Found a whole lot of my pics in a blog in Hungarian and politely asked them for a translation thank you very much. Turned out it was all good and nice, but gees they should have asked first.

    Damselfly said...

    !

    Your mention of translating the French blog was so funny!

    I love your new look (I keep forgetting it's spring where you are), and I think that flickr feature is cool.

    Fairlie said...

    Ooooo! Very nice. Love the banner pic.

    Any chance of a Creating-a-New-Look-for-Dummies tutorial???

    My float said...

    It's a beautiful new look. I did a double take when I popped by the first time. The photo is excellent.

    French blogs? You're going all professional on us, haha!

    I think I have to stop being so nice to you otherwise you'll just get a big head.
