Mixing Things Up Blog Style


You all know I like to change things up.  The blog isn’t even safe.

I wasted most of my day off yesterday learning blog things.  Like downloading new fonts.  I’m addicted.

New things to be aware of include:

1.  The header.  Oh, Ike.  I have been wanting to switch a white background.  Just to try it out.  I felt like the header needed an extra dose of color.  Thoughts?

2. I am actually going to start labeling my posts.  I wish I would have done that about 500 posts ago.  You live, you learn.  How does this help you?  I’ve added some tabs on the right to better direct you to things you may be interested in…without having to scroll through the entire blog.  I ramble on about many different things.  If you’re only here for the decorating, go on and click that decorating tab.  I won’t bore you with my amazing kitchen skills or how I sewed through my finger.

I’ll be cleaning up the top tabs this week-end as well.  Hopefully.  Maybe.

Let me know if something looks funny or isn’t working!

Big week-end plans?  Seen any good movies lately (rentals are a-okay with me!).  What meals should I add to next week’s meal plan?  How is that for laziness?

  1. Looks good. I like the white background.. supposed to be calming. Centsational Girl did a post on blog layouts and that was one of her main points. I may try to follow your lead a bit here and do some sprucing up. It's just like everything else in life, occassionally it needs to be torched and started over.

  2. Yay for new blog organization! I have to get my labels under control, too. I have them but I think there are too many. I like how you made individual boxes for them instead of the cloud/list format that Blogger provides...how did you do that using Blogger? I will patiently await your Blog It expertise. ;)

  18. The header is so artsy and fantastic. I can't even remember what your other one looked like anymore, but Ike looks so at home here.

  19. Love the new header. You can never go wrong with color and Ike. Font downloading can be addicting. I had to detox after downloading like 500 fonts when I was planning our wedding.

  24. Just discovered your blog & loved the powder room - so fresh & beautiful. Btw, ligers do exist - have seen them myself at the Big Cat Habitat in Sarasota, Fl. Big cats living together in captivity will mate - even the solitary tiger. Look like lions with striped legs.
