Re-decorating the Blog

You know, I just cannot commit to one look, I just can't. I love too many styles. I'm eclectic. So I have decided to embrace my many moods and inspirations and give in to this designer's heart of mine and stop worrying about having one everlasting look - at least here on my blog!

Maybe that it's just too much fun to make new banners! Esp. with the fun and easy to use graphics from Shabby Miss Jenn Designs.

Still, I do believe that it's important to have a logo, and marketing materials that make you stand out and that are recognizable for your websites, boutiques, etc.. I'm working on that. And I think that by going through some of the changes I have played with here on my blog that I have begun to develop my own look. I will brand my company and products in some kind of consistent manner, but I still will want to incorporate some small flexibility for changing out the colors and textures to flow with the seasons and moods of my designs.

So I will compromise. I have made this background that I really like, it's textured, it's subtle, it's damask (which I obviously love!) and it doesn't clash with anything else, so that can stay. And I won't move the furniture around in here too radically. I worked to hard to figure out how to make that third column, so the structure will stay intact here too!

But I'm likely going to indulge in a new banner at least every season, maybe every month. So don't be confused if you see a new one! It's just me redecorating again!

Hey a girl can change her mind! The main thing is no matter how many times you change things up your blog is always FAB! You are a little computer whiz! Good job!

I think changing things up keeps it interesting as long as you stick to the same kind of look. Branding is important but changes can be good. Your blog is great!!
