Changes to the blog...

If you've been on my site this morning, you may have noticed a lot of changes and things not lining up quite right. I'm in the process of changing the blog layout (I do this about every 6-9 months, I get bored easily), and hence while things are in progress, sometimes they won't look quite right.

The main change you'll notice (other than the obvious background and color changes) is that for the first time EVER, the girl in the logo has changed. Since I went back to a more natural brown this spring, I've debated about changing her hair color as well. But then it drove me crazy that she didn't actually have an entire set of hair, the top of her head was cut off and I couldn't seem to draw one that looked quite right. So, I did some searching and playing around with images, and found my new girl on iStockPhoto. She's been highly customized since I bought the file yesterday, but she does look quite a bit more like me (minus the 7 month baby bump) and she'll likely stick around for quite a while! I think you'll notice her changing clothes and accessories over time, but she's likely here to stay. What do you think?

I like the new girl! I think its more personal since you darkened up your hair. I love her look. She looks so dainty and feminine.

I really liked the old one though, so I would suggest putting her somewhere on your page. Maybe at the bottom of the "Who writes this stuff?" section.

I immediately noticed the girl had changed. Love her - she is super cute! Will be looking out for subtle changes to her accessories etc over the next few months.

Love the changes and love your new "girl"! I have been wanting to change my blog layout too (to make it more personalized), I just havent gotten around to it! I want my "girl" to look more like me on my blog too. LOVE the new layout!!! :)

I'm so glad everyone likes it! I'll put the old girl up over on the "About me" page, that's a great idea Cass!

I'm running over to check it out Crystal, and Pammy I got the girl from iStockPhoto. The file had all of the different layers separated, so it was pretty easy to customize her even more. I had to use both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to do it though.

I love comments! Please ask away, provide info on how you liked something, etc. Note that spam, comments with random links (which I count as spam), anything not in english (again, spam) and comments that are completely unrelated to anything will all be deleted.
