Thanks to Hanna's design skills and my husband's HTML prowess, the new Gifted Blog banner is up! Hanna made a few helpful tweaks to the last draft. She enlarged the title, swapped out a photo that wasn't mine (though I wished I could have used that one from Nice Package!), and added some drop shadows for dimension.
first round of drafts, I immediately thought, "It's so me! She nailed it." Hanna took my initial thoughts and developed them into something that reflects the simplicity, joy and thoughtfulness that I want to convey with my gift wrapping and blog. Yay!
I also spent way too many hours last night playing around with the new sidebar widget for my favorite books on packaging and gift wrapping ideas. Do you like it? Or are the sidebars getting too crazy? There is so much I want to put there, but I don't want it to overwhelm.
And finally, if you're wondering about the heart-shaped box on the banner, a tutorial is coming! I'm thinking about calling it the 'Woodland Gift Box'. But I usually hate naming things; don't really have a knack for it. Any other ideas?
