A Few Layout Tweaks...



I grew bored of the LCH layout not long after I installed it in December, but each time I go to design something new I find it impossible to leave behind the original colors of my personal branding. Instead, I opted to make a few minor changes. New background, header, a super fun navigation bar (hover over them!), etc. I'll roll out the rest of the tweaks in the next few days but I wanted to get this up while I was on a roll (mainly so I couldn't back out of it!). I think as a designer you tend to be your own worst critic.

If you're reading in BlogLovin' or Google Reader, click over (HERE!) to check out the new subtle look yourself! 

I'm wiped out now! Last night was a long night of work and I'm gearing up for another! xo

  2. That's so funny. I've hated my blog design for ages and been trying to think of some ways to tweak it so I had yours, along with a couple of my other favourite blogs open for some inspiration and then *poof* I refresh the page and it's suddenly all changed! I love the new navigation bar, those little graphics are so cute! Plus the whole blog kind of looks like it is on a cloud now. Wish I had your design prowess, I totally love this xo

  23. This layout is brilliant!! I've changed the layout on mine so many times before I finally stuck with the one I have. Even though it isn't exactly what I want (I'm still unsure about the style) it's something I designed using my own photos and without Photoshop (that was a challenge). Anyway the new design is so cute, d'aww :)
