About my new look, what do you think? As I started out to design a new banner my thought process went something like, “I have to keep it light and airy,” because I love that look. But as I started creating, the hopeless romantic in me was asserting herself into my design. I tried to shush her but I kept hearing the mantra, “Be true to yourself.” So, here’s a confession, I’m really not that light, I’m much more melancholy. And so this is what I came up with. It is authentically me. Moodiness and all. Moody’s okay. Moody’s me. I just don’t want it to read dark and gloomy. Is it too gloomy? I would love your feedback.

Thanks for visiting me in my new place!

  1. Thank you Ann! Your words of encouragement are so welcomed, let me tell ya. Yes, kickin’ this ding dang crap to the curb and then running over it with a garbage truck is my favorite image!!!!

    I still love these frilly, feminine designs. wow.

  2. Oh Ann, I can’t enter the giveaway because I ain’t doing facebook. They have ticked me off for the last time. So …dang. Maybe next time. I do Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram {which I looooove} and Bloglovin’. But don’t feel bad or anything, like that. okay? k.

  3. Your site doesn’t strike me as gloomy at all. One thing I do wish about WP websites is that the same Follow box as appears on blogs was there. Having posts appear in the reader is so convenient.

  4. Not gloomy at all. Looks elegant and romantic. Has a southern feel, to me. Love it!!! I’d say do more of it! (PS-I can’t seem to enter give away either because I don’t do Facebook. I did put in my email address so maybe that worked? Can’t tell. Anyway, no worries, just thought I’d report.) Love the header, definitely not gloomy, definitely romantic.

  5. Well, I had to smile because I started out with WordPress, and switched to Blogger. Yes, I’m certifiable.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say, I love the new, romantic look of your blog. It is so you.
