New!

Sah-WEET! It's done - a brand new shiny blog template (hit refresh if you can't see it)!!!

I've been wanting to change my blog for quite some time. Yes, perhaps I've been a little obsessed with "new" these days. New hair, new seasons, new classes, new outlook. But hey, it's spring - why not, right?

And now, may I point out (just cause I'm tickled that it all came out ok! Humour me in this "Look, ma, I did it!" style announcement :P )...

- New header. Hopefully it's not too huge anymore. And it shouldn't overlap with anything important. Let me know? Thanks to Brad and Paul for teaching me about transparent backgrounds and for tweaking the image.
- New sidebar. Yup, it's officially an orchid theme. My landlords gave me the flowers, and I used them as inspiration! And it's all flipped around and everything! Hee hee! Plus, the sidebar is waaaaay less cluttered now. Check out the photos, the links, the blogroll - they're all up to date
- New drop down menus. Just click the boxes and they'll expand. Faaancy! Thanks to Jenn, from whom I yoinked the code.
- New footer. Scroll down. Waaaay down. It's even pretty way down at the bottom! hehe

Here's the old template and the old sidebar (ew!), just for kicks and giggles. OK, OK, I'll stop now. Thanks for putting up with me! :D

Your blog is beautimus! :)

I've been thinking of changing things up myself. Of course, I love the double side bar and it's taken me months to get it the way I want, so I'm cautious to change it. We shall see.

Awesome, it's pretty satisfying to get something new done, I'm still a total neophyte with all the terms and possibilities, old dogs can learn new things, but maybe a bit slower :) Have a ball at your dance classes.

I just loooooove your new blog template. It is feminine, elegant and simply beautiful. Plus, it reflects the beauty of your writing style. Well done! I wish I had a Brad and a Paul to teach me cool stuff like that...

Looks great! I'm regretting switching from blogger to wordpress more and more cause wordpress won't let me put my own design (or download one) that they don't have. They suck!

Oooooh....purty! I love the new template! Your fresh new look is making me want to do something new to my template, too. But I'm sure if I sit down for a minute, it will pass...lol!
