I hope you’re all having a lovely start to a new week! You might have noticed that my website has had a bit of a polish and is wearing new pretty graphics (if something is looking wonky, you might want to refresh your browser). The structure of the main site or the blog hasn’t really changed that much, as I’m a great believer in ‘if it’s not broken don’t fix it’, but for a long time I’ve been feeling that the overall design lacked some personality and femininity.
When it comes to the blog, while I appreciate that all sort of fancy sideways-scrolling cartwheel-spinning visual feasts are nice to look at, I’m such an old skool blogger at heart, that for me blogs need to first and foremost work as a reference library. Hence you will always find different ways to browse content, and links to archives, on my blog. Even if it doesn’t look as sleek as some other ways of presenting blogs, content will always be king in this particular one.
A huge thank you to Sabina from Design Garden, who created the beautiful graphics for me (I wanted something feminine, fun and reflecting my love of DIY) and Paul Thompson (who still after 10 years of coding my websites doesn’t have a site of his own), who implemented the changes.
So, do have a browse and take in the new look, I really hope you’ll like it! I appreciate all feedback you might have. In fact, at the end of the week I will draw two random people who comment on this post from the hat and send them a little surprise.
