Face-lift - or not..?

I recently redid the theme on my personal blog (if you are really bored you can check it out here: ) And I really like it - its fun and colorful and cute - it makes me smile. I noted over there, as I changed the theme in quick succession that I was (am) really trying to fine 'my' blogging identity, 'my' voice, 'my' theme. And although here I pretty much know my voice -- I've never been so sure about the theme - its been basic, plain - perhaps a bit boring. *snorrrrrrre*

Hence the change. I kind of liked it at first but now I'm not so sure. Its kind of dark. And then last night my son told me it looked like a swamp. Then he clarified, not just any swamp - a putrid swamp he said. I did a few other renditions which I got screenshots of, but they are on my puter at home - will put those up tonight. . . they are lighter, brighter, and some are pinker. ;-) I've never been a frilly-girly-girl - but I do like pink, not on me but as a color in general.

So, what do you think? Is the current theme too swampy? Too dark? PLEASE let me know what you really really think. K?

Thanks -


  1. I like it! It leaves the blog a natural tone. You don't need anything flashy. With a jewelry and metalsmithing blog, you want the jewelry to pop! I like to keep my blog boring looking, then accent it with splashes of jewelry with colorful stones! Just a thought! :)

  2. Did I know you had a personal blog...hmmm? I don't think so. I thinks it's a nice colr...perfect for the upcoming Spring. As for looking like a swamp or should I say "putrid swamp" ...that I don't see.

    You have been given some love on my blog...check it out. :)

  3. I really like it, but then I'm a rustic kind of gal. Your personal blog is cute except for the graphic dog :P
