A New Look!

For quite some time now I've been wanting to update the look of my blog using My Digital Studio. The announcement of the Color Renovation was the push I needed to take some time and give my little web space a renovation as well.

We will soon be saying goodbye to my beloved Mellow Moss, the primary color of my blog before my renovation, and hello to two of my favorite returning In Colors...Baja Breeze & Riding Hood Red. I combined those two colors along with favorite green (besides Mellow Moss ;-)...Certainly Celery.

I hope you like my new updated look! I'd love to know what you think. With the lack of comments lately I wonder if anyone even looks at my blog?

ETA: Thank you for the nice comments regarding my new look! Sorry I sounded a little whiney/needy yesterday when posting about wondering if anyone even looks at my blog lately. lol With all the time I spend on this stuff, I just hate the thought that it may be time wasted. I guess sometimes we all just need a little encouragement...so thanks!

A few asked if updating the blog was complicated? Well, I'm still do some tweaking and trying to get things to look right. To me this is the hardest part, because my HTML knowledge is very limited. The actual designing of the banner and buttons was fun & easy using MDS. The hardest part there was trying to decide which elements to use!

I like your new look, Lynn. I have your blog on my Google reader, so I see everything you make - I just rarely comment on anyone's. I like all the white space on your blog - some I see are so busy I can't find the latest project for all the other stuff.

I love the new colors you picked out! Fabulous! I also read your blog whenever you post, I'm just very bad about commenting. I never know what to say without repeating what everyone else is saying. I also agree that I like the white space on your blog...a lot of them just get tooooo busy and it's difficult to find things!

I'm also bad about commenting -- love the new look though! It's hard to find the time to comment sometimes, especially when I'm getting more than 100 emails a day with blog updates! You're one of the ones I check faithfully though! TFS!
p.s. How hard was it to do the blog banner with MDS? I still have to do that myself!

Love the new look Lynn! I'm so happy RH Red is coming back as well as Pirouette Pink....and others! As much as I hate to get all new stuff, I love the new color choices. Sorry I don't comment more. I usually see your stuff on Google reader so I don't see you actual blog look. If you hadn't mentioned it, I don't know how long it would take me to notice! I love your style! Have a great day!

Love the new look! White space is so appealing and makes the blog info jump out at you. Keep up the great work - we are following you almost daily!

Kathy Mc said...

Have to agree that the white space is a warm welcome. Some blogs take forever to load, and my new computer is pretty fast. Like the clean and simple look!

I love the new look...I liked the old one too ;) I saw this many weeks ago, but did not get the chance to comment. I still look often, but do not always have the time to comment anymore. You still inspire me (even though I haven't done a thing in over a year!)
