Readers, please let me introduce you to my new image: the revamped, put-together and all around complete package!
New image, meet your biggest fans, loyal cheerleaders, obsessive stalkers, random passersby, and most creative craftiers. "Hi!"
Pleasing color palatte, don't you think?
I have been putting a lot of effort into making a complete image, making my blog easy to navigate and inviting, and pulling all the various jannypie elements out there together. That all started by designing a new logo and banner.
Watch out, I'm soaring with scissors
I think it is so fun and excatly "me", while still being simple and clean. The owl is meant to be changeable and I will give him different styles and activities throughout my sites.
One of the first things I wanted on my blog was an easy to find and use search bar, and collection of important links. At the top of the page you can find all of these!
There is the RSS link to subscribe in a reader or via email. Also included are links to email me, my Twitter, Flickr photo album, Facebook fan page, and my Etsy store.
Just below the action, I have included a little welcome message, to greet new visitors and kind of give them an idea about where they are and what they will find here.
You will kindly notice the smooth rounded edges to my sections, quite pro, tyvm.
I've included some highlights throughout the information in the side, such as an area to find my new "Share This" button
My most recent Twitter feed
Shots of some of my favorite projects
and a little graphic with my owl pointing out the "Older Posts" links, so that new visitors know there is more cool stuff to find!
Keeping my new image going, I have created a matching Etsy banner and avatar set
And the same on my Facebook fan page
I feel as though as a blogger, an artist, a starting business woman, it is taking me a long time to build my foundations and creations, but it is all going in the direction that I have pictured in my head, and I couldn't be happier about that.
I truly hope you all like the new look, and I would love comments, positive or negative, it would please me to know what you think!
Thanks again, and I'm leaving you with a final graphic, which will be my post signature when read in RSS readers only... signing off,
