Givin' the Ol' Blog a Face Lift

i've been inspired by Somerset Studios Artful Blogging magazine (Feb/Mar/Apr 2009) Edition. i have started giving my blog a little 'pep me up'. So far, the only major change is the blog header. What do you think?

i started my blog back in November 2005, and like so many other 'artful' bloggers, i did it because i wanted to participate in Illustration Friday and the easiest way to do that was to create a blog. Lately, i've noticed that blogs are getting much more creative and customized and i think Artful Blogging magazine can probably take some of the credit for this trend.

My favorite blog from the magazine ... definitely has to be Geninne's Art Blog. i just love everything about it. Her blog is so crisp, colorful and organized, just like her life, judging by her posts! Her artwork is beautiful and she has lots of great ideas. If my blog could end up being half as good as hers, i'd be thrilled beyond measure. Stay Tuned ...

This is what my old Blog Header looked like. What do you think of the new one? i've done something similar for my Etsy Shop as well.
