Did You Cut Your Hair?

I am so excited about my new look!

Though I'd love to rave on and on about the designer, I put it together myself. Somehow, sharing about how wonderful I am doesn't seem quite kosher. I will tell you how hard (and easy) it was, though. I put the header graphic together a few weeks ago, but I wasn't sure how to get the picture to show up as a part of the blog design.

I was awake until nearly 4:00 this morning trying to figure out what I needed to do in order to put the graphic up, but get rid of all the heading text. I didn't find Blogger's tutorials especially helpful in this area. They seem to have been written for people who already know what they're doing, not those of us blogging by the seat of our pants, so to speak.

However, after a quick Google search, I found this tutorial which really gave me a head start where the official Blogger people left me behind.

Once I had that piece in place, it only took me about 5 minutes to put it all together and make the hyperlink work. Then another hour or so admiring my handiwork and polishing up the edges (or in this case, the sidebar).

So, she asks, shyly, do you like it?


  1. Love it! That is a great font and shape for your title, and I love the image. Maybe you could help me with that--I like my picture, but would love a better-looking title.

    I can help you change your background color, if you ever want to do that, but that's about all I can offer!


  2. Jeanne, well, it all depends on whether you are just looking to use a different font/color or if you want effects on the text (like the wavy "Imagination"). I'll e-mail you and we can chat more.

  3. I love it, so very creative, and a little edgy too.

  4. It's awfully cute! I sure love the pix of the little girl in a pink dress. What a sweetie! I'm way going to copy that tutorial link. Getting tired of my own blog's look...

  5. Very nice. My screen always seems to show pictures a little unnaturally dark, though . . . which makes the last half of experiece sort of blend into the background.

    I love your title banner. If I ever decide to do one, I'll have to ask you how you did it.

  6. Your blog looks fantastic! Want to do some work on mine? LOL
