Just a chat....

Oh look!  I have a new look blog!  Again!  
I know, I'm a complete tart when it comes to changing it about.  Originally I decided to change it seasonally, but those seasons, well, they just kept on and on, and it's a lot of work.(ish). And also, there's so much choice!  But now, after years of using Leelou Blogs' free templates, I've bought and paid for this one, and Leelou actually built it for me!  I know.  Getting a big head? Having a bespoke blog because I'm so important?  No. You can get her to do one for you for a ridiculously small sum of money.  Really, all of this has cost me less than $25.  With the sort of geek knowledge needed, I'm astounded by this. I love it!  So...this may be my blog look for a while gentle reader. Anyone want to start a book about how long it will take my eyes to itch and I'll be needing a new look?  Lawks, it may be that in the depths of my shallowness, I'm actually quite fickle!

I had a half day at my desk yesterday, mostly for putting away and cleaning up.  This was lurking after last week's workshop, so I thought you may like to see it.  This little dove may well turn out to be the most overused of my Christmas stamps this year.  (It's a Woodware clear stamp).  See what I mean?

You're looking lovely and fresh! I may have to go and redo mine now, cos I love a change too and I haven't done it for yonks. Hope you are well? Me, I'm back on my feet & doing ok-ish again. Lots of rest having to be done just so I can cope with boring mundane things like bank visits but better than I was!! Take care Zo xx

Nice bit of re-decorating, Julia- and you didn't have to move all the furniture into another room! Love that dove- thats what I like for Christmas cards- something pretty much all done with the one stamp- I have so many stamps that would take me weeks of colouring, they never get used. See you tomorrow, Hugs, Shaz xx

Love the "new" look Julia. I tend to get itchy eyes and change the ole blog quite often.
Your Christmas dove is so pretty.
Wonderful works.

Hi Julia,

I like this look! The turquoise lined paper and the yellow dots -- fab! Actually, it's kind of the color theme of my house!!! haaaa

The cards are wonderful. Love the embossing.

Hugs,

I just changed mine a couple of weeks ago..I got the header from Shabby Blogs and built the background, using an image I got for free from some geeky blog background place. I like to change it up and it had been a year since I had changed it...So I'm trying to do it once a year...Cx

Helen said...

I keep thinking about changing mine but it seems such an effort (just call me lazybones!) I'd hate to mess something up... I do like your new look though - AND the gorgeous cards.

These inspired me to use tags a little more often...

Have a great evening!

I like it, oh yes I do. Very easy to read and bright and cheery. Been thinking about doing that myself. Maybe after the holidays.

I'm loving the new look every thing is so sharp, crisp, clean. I used to change mine too, now that I found the rain background I treasure it LOL, it's on my Google page too, I loooove rain. That's a beautiful stamp and lots of creative ways to use it, all the cards are beautiful, like the die cut too. This is such a busy time of year, we all get a little frazzled, crazy, exhausted, but we end up muddling through, then can breath around Jan.1st. LOL.. Have a wonderful day, see ya soon..

Eliza said...

I love the change and good for you for taking the plunge and really if you change it weekly or monthly it is you that has to be happy.

Beautiful cards too.

Hugs Eliza

I love the new look, very fresh looking and just wish I had the courage to do the same but i have this horror that my blog will disappear in its entirety if I mess about with it!

Nan G said...

Love the doves! The new look seems a bit quiet for you. I do like changing things around when I can too. See ya Wednesday. Hugs
