A Nice Day for a New Look

Do you like the new look on the blog? I went to shabbyblogs for the free background, which I think is super cute. They have a really good selection and it's very user friendly. I did want to pick something that wasn't to distracting so that's why I went for muted tones. I also redesigned the header. I was the same image that I had been using for the past year and a half, and it looked a bit fussy. I went for a crisp font and used some of my many photos of buttons.

I also added a quick 'interesting, cool, and like' button at the end of each post. I like using this tool on facebook, it's a very handy way of saying you like something without having to leave a comment. I didn't even know it was an option until last night when I went browsing around through all the tools/functions. Lastly I've also added a search bar to the top so you can search the blog for exactly what you're looking for.
Any other suggestions to make this beast more user friendly?


  1. Hey Ruth - out of interest, what size is your new pretty banner - I've been meaning to make one for AGESSSSSS for LuckyRainbowDesigns and its been so long since I toyed with photoshop!!! :)x

  2. Hey it's 100 dpi, 50cm by 12cm. I'm sure you could have it wider but I'm happy that it doesn't take up too much space

  3. I love it!
    Very bright and fun!

  4. Wonderful new look to your blog! You have inspired me to go change mine up a bit. I'm going to have to add a banner and I really like the cool like buttons =)

    Thanks for the inspiration! Happy friday!
