Showing Off My New Blog Design!

I just wanted to write a quick note to say, I’m sorry I haven’t posted much this week!  All the blog work I have done hasn’t shown up in the form of tutorials this week – I’ve put my time into the brand spankin’ new look I am debuting at Happy Hour Projects tonight.  What do you think, do you like it?

One of my new year’s resolutions (I’m sure I’ll have more, I resolve to do lots of things all year long) is to simplify.  That theme is carrying over into the blog as well.  I love the old design (a huge thank you to Carlee from Ladybird Ln for the brilliant header – it was exactly what I asked for, and it served me well getting started!!) but everyone who has dared be brutally honest with me has suggested that it’s time to retire the bright pink “since I’m not fifteen anymore,” (LOL).  Hey, I liked it – but constructive criticism prevailed.

So this is me, simplified.  I’m still swearing at Photoshop (and will take any tips you have to offer on the software – we are not getting along yet).  You may see some tweaks here and there as I get the hang of it.  And if you notice anything broken, I would love it if you would drop me a note or leave a comment and let me know so I can fix it – I’ve been updating a lot of code, and things do get missed!

I’m not in love with my buttons yet, so those may go through another round of upgrades.  But, at least the new ones match, and if you’re itching to retire the neon pink and purple I’ve subjected you to this year – feel free to grab a replacement. :)

See you tomorrow afternoon for Freestyle Friday!

    I think it looks great! You need to teach me how to make the link buttons up top, that is one thing I need to do!

    Your blog design looks pretty! I've also done a lot of tweaking on my blog design in the past when I was still learning some html coding, etc. I thought it was fun and I felt proud of myself when I saw my final blog layout hehe :-D
