NEW O.W.L. Layout and IMM

Owl of the Week: My NEW BLOG DESIGN!

Ok everyone I'm sure most of you have noticed the new design and layout.  After sharing the two I found a few weeks ago and looking around, I decided it was time to get my own look.  I wanted a layout that was all mine (both of the two options before were at other blogs).  After looking at several blog designers for one I felt created designs closest to my style I picked Custom Blog Designs.  She was fantastic!  I got on the waiting list and within a few days she was ready for me.  We emailed back and forth a ton.  I didn't like any of the digital kits with owl - they weren't my style - so we were working with stock images.  When I saw the image with my header I was in love! It was colorful but not overly so.  It was cute but not little kiddish.  It was perfect.  And it was even more perfect when I found the two owls winking at each other to use as well.  Within just a few days, Diana had the whole thing ready to upload.  It couldn't have gone better!

I just love my new look, and I hope you do to. I've been looking at it trying to figure out what part I like the most, but I can't!  Having a navigation bar now is great though.  I'll be working on making those really useful especially "For the Guys" and "Reviews".  I even have a button now (hint hint).  If you are looking for a new blog design I suggest you check out Diana at Custom Blog Designs.

Ok now for IMM.  In My Mailbox is the time to share what I got in the mail, from the library or bought. It is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren
