Since everyone loves a good before and after, I thought I'd hit the highlights of my new blog makeover. If you're reading this on Google Reader or some other site, go ahead and click over to see the prettiness :)
First up, a new background! I went from the lovely yellow with bunting from Shabby Blogs to a teal quatrefoil background from Sprik Space. It's meant to be an iPhone background, but I just edited it a bit to make it blog-suitable!
Moving down, I separated out the subscription options and the ways to connect with me, and created slimmer buttons for each option. I also added a new button: read me on Blog Lovin'!
And you'll see the same bunting echoed at the top of the blog and in each post footer. I designed both using free backgrounds from Sprik Space. Since I'd lost the cute bunting from my original yellow background, I had to get some back in!
