I was feeling an itch for change. It's the same itch that makes me rearrange furniture. Following that logic, I guess my blog banner is a couch. It needed an update, a refresh. This was going to take more than toss pillows. My previous banner (with bobbins) had been up since last year. That's ages in the blog world right?
A couple of days ago, I designed the stripey, herringbone-ish banner above. The inspiration came from this business card I saw on Pinterest. I loved the crisp feeling of that card. After I put it on my blog though it didn't feel quite right. A little too generic?
I tried to see it through the eyes of someone visiting my blog for the first time. Maybe a a blog banner should give you a clue to what lies inside?
I went through my project folders and gathered some of my favorite pictures. Then I cropped them, lined them up and added a title. It feels more like me and as an added bonus I can bring back my polka dot background. Woohoo! I missed the dots. : )
