Most of you know that I've only had this little blog for about 6 weeks, and I used ready-made backgrounds and other elements to start with so I could get up and running in a hurry. Being the creative type like all of you are, and not wanting to have a blog that looked like anyone else's, I have been doing a little research on how to design my own. Well, today I really spent the "rump time" at my computer and put together a whole new look, and I have to say that I'm pretty darn happy with the outcome! I still have some tweaking to do to some little things that will likely drive me crazy until they're fixed, but overall, I think I have a look that I'll stick with - at least for a few months.
I want to thank the desingers that I got the "papers" and other elements from to put my page together. Amanda over at kevinandamanda.com has some gorgeous stuff, and she's also a very good photogrpaher who gives tutorials on her site sometimes. Be sure to check her out. I also want to thank Carrie Stevens at Creative Complexions. I got most of the elements I used from her site. Both ladies offer free downloads.
So, now that I have the blog all spiffed up, what about a new file? Well.....I just so happen to have one almost ready to share with you. It's an elegant little hexagon-shaped box. Think miniature hat box. I have some final details to work on, but I will have it ready for you as my New Year's gift tomorrow afternoon, so come back to check it out. I think you'll like it!
