Blog redesign

As you can probably see, I'm in the process of revamping my blog. I got so sick 'n tired of the way it looked, that I finally sat down and did something about it. As you can see, it has all the things that I like: stars, stitches and my favorite bright colors (pink, red & orange). Now all I have to do is the sidebar buttons, but they will by one at a time.
Credits (also in the footer): Star stitches by Tracy Blankenship, Rope by Gina Marie Huff of Weeds & Wildflowers, various AtomicCupcake actions, font: Roadway, papers and all other elements by IkeaGoddess
I'm out of time now, have run and pick up my booger-boy at grandma's.
See ya later.
PS.: I would like to know what you think about the layout. Like does the pink hurt in your eyes..?

Fabulous banner.. I like the way the string ties everything together -- very clever.

Love the colors in your new blog....I love bright colors and I love the mix you did with the browns. I'll miss the pink and green stitched stars, though :(

Love the new look! The colors are great! Is it just me, or is the banner a few pixels too wide? I have to scroll to see it all....?

Love the rope through the letters.

Very nice.

Erin said...

I like it! Since you used neutrals as backgrounds (tan for the page, dark brown for the header), I think it tones down the pink, red, and orange enough that it doesn't hurt to look at it.

I love the colors and the layout but have one thing that I wonder if it could be re-adjusted? I have to scroll left and right to see the full page... is that your pic on top that sizes the whole page that way?

But I love the look overall!

I have meares irlen syndrome (text can be like when you look at an optical illusion pattern that looks like its moving) and I have to admit the pink's not great for me, however the creamy coloured background is great - so much easier for me than a white background and the orange is fine.
(Thanks for asking by the way :p)
