So....

What do you think of the new look? My sweet husband has created my banner, and I fooled around with the colors and fonts on the rest of it. It's not one of those cute templates like Brandi or Missy has, but I like change about as much as I like getting my tonsils removed. Which is why I still have my tonsils.

Back to the new look. What do you think? Is the background too dark? Does it look too much like mud? My husband said he didn't like the way it looked on his computer at work, and he has a fancy dancy iMac. I just wonder since I have a dinosaur Dell if it matters what monitor you have. Of course, I didn't like my old color when I saw it on his monitor, either.

I do know that I lurve the new banner. I will post more about it later. And don't think that I've forgotten about the recording. I'm still working on it. In my mind, at least. I also went to a
party last night that I'm so posting about (at some point). I have a ton to post, but school is in full swing, so I have had limited time on the 'puter.

Oh, and one more thing...if you haven't signed up for
Blog Around the World, why not? Debbie has created a monster. I mean, like Grover or Elmo. A fun monster, if you will. She started it as a blog post, asking for a comment from every state in the Union. Somehow it morphed into a brand new blog...a fun one at that. Check it out and meet women from all over the world! Be sure and tune in when It's my turn to introduce y'all to Mississippi. I can't wait!

Okay, now I need your opinions! Leave me a comment, pleeeeeeease, and tell me what you think. And I'm serious, tell me if you like it or not. You will not hurt my feelings. I need to know if it's visually pleasing. If you don't like it, why would I want to keep it this color? And if you don't have a Blogger account you can leave an anonymous comment. Just click on the "Fantabulous People said" at the bottom of the post and it will take you to the comment page. Leave your comment, leaving your name at the bottom of it if you'd like me to know who you are, then click "Anonymous" under the writing space of the comment box. Clear as mud? Hey, then it matches my color!

Hubster did a GREAT job on the banner. I think it really looks awesome. As for the background and all, still looks great. I really think it warmed up your page, not that it was cold before, it looked great then too.

It's fab! Just like you. As for my page, it's just a free template I found. So, it's not like my hubby took his sweet time to make ME a pretty page (like he would know how to do that anyway...).

And you know I love the pops of red... :) Brandi

I love the color and LOVE the banner! I'm not as crazy about the signature, to be honest. That font, the lowercase "h" specifically, reminds me of Dracula. And butterflies and vampires conflict in my mind. Is that wrong? :)

I'll keep reading your vampire signature if you decide to keep it, though. XOXOX

I think the colors are great! It really is nice!

Kat said...

Hate. it. Naaaaawwwwwwww! Just kiddin'! Really, I just have blogger envy. Blogless, you know. Although even if I still had a blog, I'd never figure out to make all those fancy shmancy changes. Anywho, like it and love it. Although I will say, I'm not liking the script for the Heathahlee at the end. I liked the other better.

I think it looks really nice.

I think it looks great! I can't resist changing mine up too...so I changed my header.

Last time I changed the whole layout it did away with most of my stuff!

The only thing that bugs me is the signature/Dracula thing. I think it might be the white outline or the font, I'm not sure. On the other hand, it does have a sort of "Lord of the Rings" vibe going on.

However, it's your blog. I've never quit visiting anybody's blog just because I didn't like the colors/fonts/whatever. If they have something to say that I'm interested in, I'm there. So, Sister, don't fret too much about what it looks like to us - it's yours - fix it like you want.

LOVE YOU,

Sister

I'm telling you, when I first read Katie's comment about the whole vampire thing I'm glad I didn't have Diet Coke in my mouth at the time, or my computer would have had a bath. I laughed so hard at that. I have to figure out how to not have that white outline. That was the reason I chose a thicker font anyway. I'll take it off until I can figure it out, because far be it from me to make anyone have bad dreams of Dracula. Although from what I read on so many of your blogs some of you are quite addicted to "Twilight" so it may not be so bad for y'all. I'm taking it off anyway!

I think it looks great!!! I love the banner.

Good grief, ANOTHER thing to add to your Husband Rocks! It looks awesome. I do think it matters what monitor you have because the background color varies from my laptop to my big screen. On my big screen the font blends in a bit much with the brown, but on the other - fabulous. It is so cozy and inviting. It's so hard to decide. I have asked someone to do design my blog since it's just one I have played with, and when she asked me what I wanted, I haven't had a thing to tell her except 3 columns. How sad is that? Completely understanding the school thing....whew!

I am going to be totally honest with you. This is my first time here and my very FIRST thought was "wow, what a great looking blog!!"

Thanks for stopping by today and visiting the great state of Colorado! Come back any time!

I think it's great. I like the 3 header and the simplicity of it.

Ironically, I am thinking of changing mine! I need the 3 header thing and I think mine is too busy.
