Under Construction

I've had this blog for almost 18 months now.  I've made relatively few changes to its set up.  I like the current format in a lot of ways.


But Blogger has come up with a lot of new & beautiful designs.  I switched over I looked for love.  It took a bit of work.  I lost a couple of things.  I've played with different formats & colors.

I'm going to switch this one over, but i'm a bit fearful.  I don't want to lose anything!


I do like & use these colors:  




Ok, these didn't line up so well.  These are the colors, to wear & to look at, that i'm drawn to again & again.  I use similar colors in the blog set up currently.  What i'm seeing in the other designs is that i tend toward a greener look, more like what I looked for love is currently.  


Anyway, i'm going to give it a try.  I'll probably also create tabs for most of the info currently in sidebar.  I like a wide page without a lot of other stuff to distract from it.  So, wish me luck!  If this doesn't work, it may not be easy to recreate what i currently have as Duane has re-written some of the HTML for me.  :)

(Ok, it is done, what do you think?  Is it too irritating to have the background show up thru the post?  Post #350 ! ) 

Ok, a few things are still under construction, but most of it is up.  

Here is how it used to look, just 'cause i want to remember.

I like the new look. The other was was fine also. Yes, I like your color palette! Thanks for the kind words on my blog. I have been sick lately, so I appreciate your prayers. I am not used to being sick.

I prefer shorter blog posts--just my opinion. But it's your blog, so you should do what you want. My posts can be long at times also.

Thanks, Ms. Mommy. :)

Hope you are feeling better soon. Being sick is draining, & i know you're used to lots of energy.

Sorry about the grant scam thing.

Well I love it! It's very fresh, and cheerful. You chose a very good color for the text, a lot of times floating text can be difficult to read, but this is quite easy.

It looks a bit like an impressionist painting in the background. It's very soothing, well done!

I personally have no graphics talent, whatsoever, so even though I'd like to change mine a bit, it will be like it is until the end.of.time.

Or thereabouts ;-)
