new look

In honor of valentine's day and the fact that I can get away with using my favorite color over and over and over on the blog, I decided to redesign my blog.

By myself.

This is a first for me - making the background in Adobe Illustrator, then putting the elements together in Photoshop, and then changing the template and HTML code in Blogger.

But I finally got it and it worked! Yippee! And it was so much fun too!

Oh the possibilities this has opened up! (Are you tired of the exclamation points yet?!?!?)

Anyway, let me know if you like it.

If you don't like it...well...I'm sure I'll be changing it again in a few weeks. So you'll just have to suffer through the pink for a little while longer!

UPDATE: Does the design fit all the way to the edges of your computer screen? It does on my home and work computer, but it doesn't on Kent's laptop. So I'm trying to address the problem but I need to know if it's more than just his laptop that doesn't stretch the screen.

You have way to much time on your hands!!! I'm jealous.. I would love to make my own but i'm not that crafty! I love pink and brown and it looks great.
Hope all is going well.

You Arizona pen pal

I love the pink! I only know how to use the pre-made backgrounds. Your sister can tell you how "untechie" I really am!

pink's an awesome color!
Hey it shows up on our computer all the way to the edge

You do have too much time on your hands!

It's GREAT. The design goes to within 1" on each side.

I love the redo but I miss the chair with the snow, but then again I am in the south, where I don't have any snow.

by the way - it doesn't go to the edge of my screen - but most blogs don't...
