Baby Steps!

My blog is under construction (finally)! I have been wanting to ditch the old background for eons, but I have been holding on to the old look because I dread making design decisions.

Well, I am finally taking the plunge because I was lucky enough to win a flashing blog header from Jenny at Through Jenny's Lens.

However, I am totally dragging my feet picking the pictures for the new header. Looking over my 10,000's pictures makes me realize what a perfectionist I am. Why? Because I look at all of my photo's and I don't find any of them worthy of a cool new header.


Sigh! I know that I seriously need to get over it, because they don't have to be perfect shots (oh that is hard to type).

So I am taking baby steps by putting up this quickly created header (by me) and changing the blog layout/size (thanks to Jenny).

If you don't know Jenny, head over to her blog and check out her header.

It is so cool!

Oh my gosh, I totally know how you feel!! I was so bad that the girl that did my blog did three makeovers for me in less than three months!!! Great $$ for her, but waste of money on my end! But, if I knew how to do it myself, I'd be changing it all the time.

It's kind of like clothes, isn't it? You want to look your best, have it look like "you" - and yet, you have to wear the same thing every day! Makes sense to change it every once in a while. [I LOVE your photos - I wouldn't be able to choose!!]

Congrats on winning a flashing blog header! Hard to choose a picture? Perhaps, you can create a new one. :)

I totally understand! I've been deliberating over mine for a long time now, too. A friend made me a great banner design, though, so now I'm excited. Now I just need to decide on the rest of it! LOL!

Kristi said...

Super cute new banner!!
I used to change my banner and entire scheme every 2-3 weeks. Now it is every 2-3 months.

OH! I need a makeover. I picked a template that I like (not LOVE, but like...), but my husband is too chicken to help me because he thinks if he messes it up, I'll be mad. (why would he think THAT?!? :-)

Congrats on the win! I'm eager to see what the final look will be.

Have fun deciding. I think the most fun is in the experimenting, the anticipation of the final outcome. Do you have a separate blog which no one else sees but YOU where you can try out new ideas?

blueviolet said...

I am a terrible decision maker also, so I can appreciate this. However, your photos are spectacular! You must have a bajillion that would be worthy. Of course, that doesn't help with the decision either.

I know how you feel. I get tired of the same old look, but it is so hard to change.

Mommy Kennedy said...

I hear ya! I totally get it! I've taken time to investigate other designs, pondered them and then chickened out on making any final decisions. Maybe it's some anxiety over any more change in my life!

I need to get over it too!

Congrats on winning... loving the new look!

Sometimes I think I want to give my blog a "face-lift"... but I really like my header. It's ME, you know? And no one else has it (at least that I've seen)

Jenners said...

I love what you picked! Can you rotate it every so often to showcase your different photos?

Whimsical Creations said...

LOve it!! Congrats on winning!

Jen said...

I LOVE your new look!!!!!

First I must apologize for being so far behind, blizzard, hubs home and underfoot, grandkids spent a night, and gingerbread houses have left me little time on the computer over the last few days.

I love your header! I know it's always hard to choose, I never feel like any of my photos are perfection, lol. And I love the mushrooms. :)

Congrats on the new blog renovation! You do take some beautiful pictures, so I can understand how hard it must be to pick just one. I happen to like the one you have above my own self :)
