Ye olde rainbow-felt banner image had been getting me down for a while. It was just kindof blah, a remnant of a time before I had really worked hard on my photo knowledge/skills, before I made friends with Photoshop and LIghtroom. Today I tossed out that old scraggly felt and found something a little more sparkly in my archives. I also revamped the side menus and made the entire content area wider. I'm still not CSS-savvy, but I'm much happier.
The new banner image is the morning sun reflecting off of raindrops on a mimosa in our alley. It was a close race between that one and this pink-and-pretty image.
I do love the ladybug (you know me and my bugs). It was just a touch too pink, not sparkly enough, and I identify with green, so the mimosa won.
Let me know what you think, or if you have ideas that could make it better!
