Playing with my Blog Design

Happy Monday Everyone,

I think it might be a few more days till I get my energy back but I'm on the mend.   I did find enough energy to make myself a new header..  Those of you who come here often know I change it per season and often per holiday:)    I've worked in graphic design for 7 years and never tire of it.. Always something new and different with each piece of art.. At least thats how I think of it, as Art.

  I made this tag free button for this template design,, this will go on my sidebar...
  Still trying to decide if I want to use a divider..

What do you all think- do you like dividers used in a post or are they distracting?
 How do you feel about changing the blog design and colors?  do you like things to stay the same or prefer to see something different when you open a blog you've been to before..  Its ok Be honest, wont hurt my feelings either way:)  

 Your visits mean a lot to me so of course I want to put on my prettiest clothes and offer you a lovely space to spend the time in while you're here..

   There are tutorials all over the net for making headers , so I'll just say this.. If you try and any part of it gives you a rough time, email me.. I usually know a way to get,  Over- Around or Through that type of issue and just might be able to help you get where you want to go..

 thanks for stopping in to visit. you know I love it when you're here..
Happy Fall Ya'll


  1. Love the neutral tones you have on your blog right now but have fun and change it up as the fancy hits. I love making mine seasonal...seasons of my mind ;-)

  2. Love your new header and all of your pictures are stunning. Great collage. I love to change my header also. Hugs, Marty

  3. I personally love to change. These colors are very soothing. If it feels good, do it!

  4. Love the header! Change is good and brings on a fresh perspective.

  5. I'm all about the change on blogs! I love it and would think that most of those who enjoy decor also would enjoy changing their blog backgrounds and headers too. I am in love with your new header! I am a fellow basket lover so this header just sings to me! Great job, it's beautiful!

  6. Keep on doing what your doing cuz your doing it so well. I love the new header, loved the old header, and always love change, but that's my personality. If something stays the same it gets boring, in my humble opinion.

  7. So glad you're better, Sonny. I love the new header. I'm always screwing things up, so don't be surprised if I take you up on that offer!
    Big hugs,

  8. I love change and there was a time I was quite innovative and technically astute. Now I am far too old to grapple with computer technology and so I must learn to let go of change. Gosh I hate to admit that I'm too old for something. At least I can enjoy the changes you create for yourself.

  9. Sonny, I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been well. I've been so out of the blogging loop lately. Glad you are doing better. Love your new blog header. When your blog opened, before I read your post, I haven't stopped by in so long,, I studied all of the photos in the header, thinking it was new since I was last here and it is beautiful. then, I found that you had just changed it. Maybe I'm not as behind as I thought I was! laurie

  10. Hi Sonny!

    So glad you're on the mend. I've had the crud too. Dang it all. At least I'm holding the cold sore at bay. I have to go to a wedding tomorrow... hopefully, it'll still be hiding. :-) I get one every single time I get the crud. YUK.

    Love the new header... I don't know anything about the divider question. It's all I could do to change my blog look. Thanks, Sonny, for walking me through. :-) I like keeping it the same. Sort of the same colors and look.... but I enjoy going to other blogs and seeing new looks too...

    Keep feeling better...


  11. Hi Sonny! I love the new header. I like change but in moderation. At this point I change my header out per season, so a couple times a year. Some say it is not good to change, others say change is good. I say do you what you like and what feels good.


Ya'll Come Back Now, Ya Hear :-)
Hugs and Smiles
