I liked the idea of my blog looking like a journal, in theory, when I installed the current theme.  I still do.  However, now that it's been put into practice for 6 months, I feel as though there are a few things it needs.  You know, like better graphics that are more me.  A larger space for writing would be great, one less column and nicer ways to display the information that I have. Overall, something that is a bit more functional.

So...I starting playing around with some graphics and came up with a few things.  Becky over at Broken Pencils are Pointless had a look at it and gave me her opinions and I went from there.

I thought I'd let you all take a look at it as well, and let you comment on the header for the new design.

    I think your current layout is cute! Truly feels like a journal. But I do understand the want of a new and professional looking design. I just got my own professional design.

    What program did you use to make the header and where did you get the graphics from? I used to create websites.

    Popping in from the Monday Mom's Mingle! :)

    All the graphics are done in Adobe Photoshop. The girl was purchased as I just didn't have the time or inclination to fire up illustrator to do the vectors.

  4. Yes, I do love the new look! I think it's very "you". Not to mention, it was the inspiration for me to spruce up things a little over at my own humble abode. <3

    Your new header is really nice but I have to say this layout here is really good, I love this diary look, even if I understand it makes writing space quite restricted!!!
