New Layout! What Do You Think?

So I was wanting to wait until I had everything finished and organized with my new blog before putting up my new layout I just got done designing and making all by myself (thank you thank you). This is my second time designing my blog layout. I'm happy with the outcome. Although I may make it a bit wider. Not so sure yet. So that it will fit a three column layout.

I haven't made my new blog button yet so I just took down the old one for now and the little "About Me" photo I had up. I just have the blogger default for now until I get a chance to switch up to a new one. The signature is gone and I have made a new one, but for some reason, its not cooperating like it should at the moment so that too is not up. I am not sure if I am going to post a new divider in-between my posts yet like I had before.

So for just some minor tweets, this is pretty much it. I'm pretty satisfied with it. I don't have a header yet either, but I kind of like the simplicity of just the text up at the top without a header. Again, I will see if I can design anything that pleases me.

If you recall my old template used to look like this:

I liked it but it wasn't me. I only chose that because the scrapbook kit I used had all the different elements I could play around with and be creative. It was fun, bright and very coordinated, but I wanted now something that was more of me and my personality. Isn't that what a blog is anyway? So I love this design because its more simple and fresh.

I didn't use a design kit. I made everything on my own in Photoshop and Illustrator. I took a damask pattern and changed the colors to buttercup yellow (which is my favorite color besides pink) and then thought it was a nice pattern but wanted something a little more to it. So I designed the bumble bee and placed it on the edge. I love bees too. So it went well with the design.

So there are still some things left to do, but I just couldn't take waiting to put it up. So far, I think its looking pretty good. A lot less busy, but that's ok. Sometimes, less is more.


  1. I love it! I like the simple header. You could update it with a super schnzazzy font or something? I love the ribbon nav bar. It's cute! LOVE the damask! Bee is adorable. Funny how the last one was more busy, yet this one has the bee. Get it... busy bee? I am oh so funny. If you need help figuring out the signature let me know!

  2. I like this! I am enjoying the color too :-) oh, I'd like to know how you did your nav bar, please! Mine is really miserable :-)SpanishPinay
