For the last couple of months I’ve wanted to change up the look on my blog, but I haven’t know exactly what I want to. I love brown it’s one of my favorite colors, but I really love the way a white background makes pictures pop! I’ve also wanted to change the layout a bit, but I’m not to HTML savvy. I found a website the other day that lets you download different templates for free so I’m going to play around with it and see if I can come up with something I love.
My main reason for talking about this today is due to my lunch date yesterday. I’m lucky enough to live semi-close to the lovely Patricia from PVE Design so off I went yesterday morning for some girl talk, work, and lunch.
I’m even luckier, because Patricia was helping me out in a huge way by making me a new blog header! It was so much fun to sit there with her and see the process. I saw it go from a pencil sketch, to a lined black and white sketch, to a finished water-colored version.
Here is the final version we came up:
Now I just need to work on finding a font I like and adding my Blog name on to it!
It’s all so very exciting. I’m also thinking of taking a new look at what I originally had slated as business cards for Effortless Style. Perhaps I can use the fabulous wallpaper design Patricia did as inspiration.
So that is what I’ll be working on today along with some floor plans as well. Not that excited about the floor plans, but they must get done.
