- a small collagraph print with colour added digitally
I am so pleased with this new blog design. As it turns out, it is the perfect eighth blog anniversary gift from Elisa and J, though likely the timing was serendipitous. As you may recall, it was J who started me on this fascinating and addictive project eight years ago. I've surprised myself that it's still going, even if sometimes limping along (like me).
This is the biggest redesign yet, affecting many areas of the blog. If I recall correctly, this may be the third banner, after the one put up on its 4th anniversary. Then a couple of years ago, youngest daughter Erika changed the font. As I wrote then, I'm very picky about fonts so am pleased we found this one called Calluna Sans Light.
This redesign is still a work-in-progress, as are most creative projects, with a few little details to adjust. One new and developing feature is the 'About' page. You might notice the old gallery/slide show is gone because Flash no long works with this design. Hopefully a new improved one will come sometime. So many dead links floating around now - will I need to update them all?
I wonder if anyone else feels a sense of loss when changing things in a bigger way. Like the banner...it's just not the same to have the digital file and a screen shot as to see the whole blog with it. Rather like when moving house, I feel sadness leaving the old one, but nervousness and excitement with the new. I hope to have more adventures ahead, shared in the deep pleasure of friendship with all of you readers. Thank you for being here on this journey.
