tart & brush up

With all these new beginnings I reckoned it was time to soften the look of my blog a little.   I wanted to remove the emotional pain of the last year, while leaving any creative pain intact!

This was the old header:

pings and needles nerdy creativity

It captured my mood perfectly when I first designed it.  Those scissors on the right were the hospital scissors that we used to trim my brother’s eyebrows while he was in hospital.  When the nurse went to throw them away I asked to keep them.  They travelled with me while I quilted.  They don’t belong here anymore. 

I like how the pin connects to the'g' in pings ... I wanted the colours to reflect Brighton a bit more too ..

I’ve changed the fonts around as well … I felt that there wasn’t enough white space.  I like a clean blog!

So, what do you think?  Do you like the new header?  Is the font easy to read?

I’m still playing around, but I’d love your feedback …
