I'm so excited about this. I've been thinking about doing a redesign for a little while now but couldn't find the time or motivation to get it done. Finally this week, I just sat down and began working. The first banner idea was awesome, but Nick always says I fall in love too quickly with what I create. So, I made a second banner to see what would happen.
I am so happy I listen to my husband's suggestions. The second banner turned out so much more our style than the first. I considered making a third banner to see if it could get any better, but Nick was in love with the second design too, so we decided to quit while we were ahead.
What do you think?
I used the colors that I fell in love with in a spread in Rue magazine.
Then I looked at inspiration pictures I had been collecting for a pattern. Chevrons are very "in" right now, and I love the sophistication they bring to our blog.
