You've got the look...

I have been spending lots (and lots) of time trying to give the blog a new look. You know a bit here and there for a fresher look. Nothing really took my fancy - nothing. I kinda want to take this blog on a detoured path to what I originally planned. You know a bit more of me. Yes, I have been warned that I am up for criticism. One thing I have learned about life is you will never please everyone no matter how hard you try. If you do try, the people who were pleased with just the way you are, wont be pleased. Nor will the people you are trying to please because you will never be able to please them anyway!

So here is a new banner. All I want to do is add an extra column to the left of this blog - but if I cannot keep this minimalistic look then so be it. I don't really have the time I have already wasted looking for one!

Time for me is precious at the moment. Big boys are on school holidays and there is little man to factor into the equation. It has been a testy holiday to say the least. I am determined to let it get better for the last month of it.

I am terrible with my blog, I get bored with its look and I am sure you have noticed how many times I can it. Someone normally makes some comment but what the heck, like you, like it or lump it!Hugs Deb

The new blog header is just fabulous... and you just reminded me that I still have a couple of ferreros in the fridge!

Helloooo there Miss,
LOL to Leisl ...partly consume ... looks like solely wrapper ...s to me.
Yep you are right , you can't please all of the people all of the time. Re your blog template look at blogs you like and see who designed it, mine is a column on either side and was free. Its an 'our blogger design templates'. When I reorganise mine I'm taking you from my sewing links to friends ; )

Hope you are staying cool.

Sarah, your blog can take any detour you like, and really if people don't like it, just thank them for their creative criticism, have a giggle and don't worry about it....

I love the new header !

The school holidays have been keeping us busy too...no time for sewing.

Love the new header. Just remember “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.

Love the new banner! I've been working on mine. Yours is lovely! Make the blog what ever you want, don't worry about others! Only lovely things have happened to me from my blog. (I have met some of the nicest people!)

picklesticks said...

I love the new banner too and agree do what you like with your blog. That's one of the best things about blogging - you are in charge of what goes on :)

Nikki Cardigan said...

The new banner is awesome... esepcially the eaten "o". Cute!

I hope your blog becomes just what you want it to be.

I don't know if you are still wanting to redo your blog more. I had a lot of help form this web site. HTML was even for me suddenly understandable!
