A New Look

If you're reading this via email or in a reader, you won't notice anything different.  But if you're visiting my blog, you'll see some major changes.  I'm so excited about the new look!

I've been wanting to change my previous header for a long time.  A really long time.  I never really intended the old header to be anything but a placeholder until I could design a header I loved, but the next thing I knew, two years had passed with the same old header that I didn't really like.

Along with a new header, I wanted a fresh look with a brighter color scheme.  While I love brown, cream and green together, not all of my projects are complemented by those colors. Switching to a white background would better showcase my photos.

I started experimenting with new header designs.  When I realized I could use my One Little Word tags as a header, everything fell into place.  I based the colors on the tags, changed some fonts, and kept tweaking things until I found the combination you're now seeing.

I took a screen shot of the old design before making the switch.  Quite a difference, isn't it?


The only downside to the new look is that I'm going to have to update it in January to incorporate my new One Little Word tag.  Oh well... it's well worth it.
