New Look

After blogging for a little over a year now, I thought it was time I gave my blog a new look. Little did I know how involved I was going to get or how long it would take. I checked out several sites that have blog backgrounds, there sure are a lot of them out there. Boy, I gave myself a headache just looking for a background that I liked. I decided that I just had to walk away from the computer, and come back to it. After taking a break to go to a cooking class, (more on that later) I found a background that I liked, or thought I liked, after changing everything over, I decided that I really didn't like it and maybe this hadn't been such a great idea after all. I mean I could be sewing now instead of sitting in front of the computer. But in the back of my mind I could hear my friend Becky, talking about how much time she puts into her blog and I was determined to have a new look before midnight. When I found The Little Window Shop, I was so excited, they had some wonderful backgrounds. I was scrolling down the page looking at all of the options they offered when I found it, Red Swirl. Well, if you know me, you know that red is most definitely my favorite color. I had to have it. After I figured out how to "get it" then I had to rearrange everything on my blog, and of course try to "spiff" it up a little. I will probably make a couple of more changes, but it is 11:15 and I am to tired to think anymore. Let me know what you think of the new look? How often do most of you change the look of your blog?

I love the new look -- the swirls look like quilting patterns at the same time that the red and white sort of remind me of a bandanna. Perfect!

I tinker with my layout every couple of months, it seems like, but that could just be because I'm still on a pretty steep learning curve.

Awesome!!!! This looks like you!!! I'll have to visit that site for backgrounds, too. Love the changes you have made. I change my blog when I'm tired of it's look. Once, twice - a year. When I like something, it takes me a while to change it :) I can fixate on things :)

I love the new look! Red with the swirls looks like you. I haven't changed my blog look, but I guess I should look into it.

Love the red background! With the white behind the writing, it looks so clean and fresh and is very easy to read.

I too like the red ... but I will be good and not play copy-cat even though I would like to. So, did you do anything special to get you right hand column so far over to the right? I'd like to try that for my blog but don't know all that much about it. I haven't really changed my blog at all since I've started although I did save info on how to change the background. I'll probably check out your back ground place too. I like the new look! Bonnie

Great new look! I am tempted to update mine but don't want to get sucked into more time at the computer LOL!

I love the red (my favorite color, too!). It looks very cowgirl-ish! I've been thinking of changing my blog look, too, although now it matches the website so I'm not sure. It hasn't risen to the top of the list yet!
