Thought I'd Try Something New

Well....do you like the new look? I've been playing around with it all afternoon. It is sad, really, how long it took me to figure out how to do this little change at the ol' blog. But it was fun to try my creative juices out. I am not very computer savvy nor am I terribly artistic or crafty at all, but it was fun to try to figure out how to make my own picture and put it up there. And yes, that is my Bible, my glasses and my glass of sweet (with Splenda!) tea with lemon. It's not professional, and I'm sure you truly artistic people will think it's amateurish, but it is the best I knew how to do. Plus, I've been thinking about a change for a little while, but couldn't really justify spending money that we don't really have for splurging to have it redone professionally when blogging is just a hobby that I'm somewhat sporadic about. So, when I had a little brainstorm this afternoon, I thought I'd try it out, and it was free - I even found some free software to download that allowed me to play around with my picture and get it ready to post. My husband was laughing at how excited I got over my little project. It's just so seldom that things like this that I dream up turn out anywhere close to what I wanted. Anyway, I've done something new and I enjoyed it. :-)

I think it looks great...not amateurish at all. Great job!

I think it turned out great..and I think it's more special because it's personal. : ) So good job! (not that I didn't love the other one..you know what I mean...)

Thanks, y'all. Yes, I really like the other one, too. Jules at Everyday Mommy designed it for me a while back, and she did a lovely job. I've enjoyed it for several years now, and I'll keep it for when I need to change again. I just had a brainstorm this afternoon and thought I'd like to try it out.
