A New Look

I've just spent the last couple of hours giving the blog a make-over, and I'm loving the new look! I've lightened it up a bit to make it neater and cleaner looking, and added a third column. Over on the left is where you'll now find any advertising opportunities, such as Project Wonderful ad spaces, as well as links to other blogs and sites I'm following. On the right is a link to my Etsy shop and other places to find me online (Ravelry, indiepublic, etc), and all the other bloggy stuff like the label cloud and archive. Ahhh, organized!

Here's a screen shot of the old layout for comparison's sake:

And the new look:

And the new look

The part I'm really excited about is that I figured out how to work with the HTML and change this around by myself! Normally I'd go running to my web-designer brother to do it for me, but I was determined to learn how to do it. I'm pretty pleased with myself that I was able to persevere and accomplish what I set out to do! I've got to thank Amanda at BloggerBuster for the great tutorial that helped me do this!

The new layout looks great! I know what you mean about doing it yourself, I feel so good when I figure this computer htmling stuff out, but usually go to my sister for help. :)

Thanks for sharing, I've yet to conquer my html demons! I should try, though.

It looks terrific - and I know just how you feel, I was so proud of myself when I managed to write my website in html!
