Blog Banners

Dear readers, I decided to redesign my blog. I like to do this approximately once every season. I wanted to make it look a little simpler, and to tell the truth the HTML coding was kicking my butt. I know you feel me when I say that I am swamped, so I am limiting what I'm learning, and I am not fooling myself that I will learn something when I won't. HTML (along with sewing) didn't make the list.

Here is the banner I used for summer. The blog design was done by blogger and designer extraordinaire, Jessie of My Mod Style. I love the design and I am so grateful for Jessie's help. Contact Jessie if you need help designing a banner or mood board for your room. She's great fun to work with.

Here's a draft banner I designed. I used one of my paintings as the background. I wanted to include something that looked like Autumn, hence the tree to the right. Also, this reflects my new love of the color gray. However, once I placed it in the template, I couldn't bear not using pink in my blog design.

So I opted to use this design. The background is also one of my paintings. I like the simplicity of it.
For my photo blog, here is the banner I used for Spring.

And this is my Autumn banner.
