New header

The Backyard has a new header. This has taken me a really long time and I hope it doesn't take a correspondingly long time to load if you're using dial-up.

I don't seem to have the width quite right. But it still looks lovely to me. It's taken from a picture of the backyard of my Mt Victoria flat.

I'm doing a photoshop course next month. Exciting huh! No doubt I'll be able to whip these up in a flash after that. Gotta love the Wellington High School Community Education Centre.

Three posts! I think that's quite enough from me for one day.

Thanks B! Credit also to James for helping with the fiddly-template bits. Thanks James!

Looks like i'm not the only one trying to do some re-designing of blogness. I blame that Tam meself. Ever since she awesomized her layout etc, i've been totally dissatisfied with my own blog. Totally.


Still a long way from doing the logo, though... Yours looks great! Yeah, fitting it all into a nice border is really tricky when yer new to it (I hardly know where to start!). I was looking at Danielle's Den for ideas on that... (see me links) she's got a neat and simple pic nicely embedded into the top of her page.


PS: What's yer fave gemstone?

Esther - he's probably still there, just sans cigarette :)

Sat - rose quartz. I wanted to move away from the template a bit, since it's one that so many people use. And yes, Tam puts us all to shame, even if she is awol more often than not nowadays.

I like it. It is good. I am feeling monosyllabic, but don't let that fool you into thinking I'm not shitting myself out of sheer rapture at your new header.
BTW: That's not sarcasm, I'm just so. Very. Tired.

Good to see you don't match peg colours when you hang out clothes.

I love the new header, too. Must go find some multicolored clothespins...they only seem to come in wood and beige here. I'm envious of your trees.
