Whew! Let me take a quick little breather…
Ok, thanks! 😀 I’ve been working late nights to get the ball rolling for an updated look. We said goodbye to my tagline
, gave Niko an animated look
, and I’ve been playing around with coding on the blog to change some things around. Do you like the changes so far?
Yesterday, I had the chance to swap out a lot of graphics including my updated logo that you see above!
old logo with tagline
old logo without tagline
The biggest thing I needed to change was the gift bow icon. “Oh! That’s
what it was?!” Yup. It’s suppose to be one of those pull ribbon bows you put on the top of gift boxes. No? You don’t see it? Hahaha, it’s ok. I’ve had people point it out calling it a flower and ever since I came across this dog butt cover
, I never really stopped imagining my icon on Katsu’s butt. (I love their tagline: “No more Mr. Brown Eye!” Lol!) So a new icon was a top priority. I designed a more simple bow that was a better fit with “mydeardarling” and changed up the colors for a less in-your-face pink. I kept my original type as I’m currently in the works of creating the whole alphabet. Go, me! 😀
Other graphics I changed out:
old 2009 & 2010 avatars
(it’s a little embarrassing posting photos of myself everywhere)
niko in a twitter bird costume!
etsy shop banner
(I do see the alignment issue but right now I’m pretending not to notice)
And poor Facebook. It didn’t get a banner update because I didn’t realize you can’t have a text banner without it being jumbled up every time the page is loaded. (-_-)” So I’ll have to design something else for that.
I’ve also joined Google+. I mean, how can I not! I’m a big Google fan so it was a no brainer. Add me in your circle if you’d like. I’m still exploring so maybe you can teach me a few things. 😉
That’s it for today! How are you liking all the updates? There’s still more updates to come as I work on projects along the way. 🙂 A special thanks to my sweet husband, my sisters and Bryce for their critiques during the final phase of my logo.
