Amazeballs

You guys. ROCK. hard. seriously. 

Friday night I plopped down on the couch with a little wine, and a lot of Say Yes to the Dress (or mayyybeeee it was the other way around) and your great suggestions, determined to fix some of the things that had been driving me bonkers on my blog. Namely the photos along the side (done in MS Paint, originally. I'm so fancy!), centering the banner, and wanting to add some centered tabs below the header to direct you to specific pages..

(I'll wait for a second while you hop off Google Reader to go check out my pretty new design!) 

I stumbled my way through Picasa, thanks to a suggestion, and after some googling..discovered easy tips on how to center things. MAGIC, those interwebz, I tell you what. I LOVE the new feel. Streamlined, clean, and dare I say it looks a little bit like I could've paid someone to do it.. ;-). I am not TOTALLY computer inept but I am pretty proud of myself for figuring some of this out myself!

I feel a little bit more "official" now, guys! 

Oh, and I stopped by my own home page to see I had 25 followers! To you newbies: Hi! Feel free to click around, OR just click on my super fancy new "About Me" tab for a brief summary. 

M is in the midst of refinishing an oldschool trunk we got from his mom, that SHE got at an estate sale for $3! We're thinking it will live in the living room as coffee table. Stay tuned, hoping to bring ya'll a before and after by Monday!

(2 posts in a row without photos. My bad. Buuuut I HAD to come back here ASAP and thank you guys for the great advice!)

  6. I love the new look! :) Designing blog stuff is crazy confusing at first, but eventually you'll get the hang of it! I use Pixlr.com for my header, buttons and other blog things. It's like Photoshop, only free!! :)

  7. Header looks great! I still haven't decided on one - I'm just as shallow and didn't want to create anything that isn't nice enough to put it up there. Heh heh! Maybe in the summer holidays?
