Site Design, ever evolving

I keep talking about revising my template and I've got a workable setup. I just need to sit down and hammer it out, instead of going on and on, talking about doing it when I should just shut up and do it. In the meantime, I've changed my wallpaper to the ivy pattern that you see now. It's always been my idea to rotate the background image, with the seasons perhaps, to evoke the sense that the Armoire was situated in different rooms of some old Victorian manse, at least as reflected through the change in background. At least it's a way to refresh the look of the site periodically without too much revamping of my templates.

Anyway, this dark ivy is more fitting these cold, sunless days. I'm hoping that by making this little change, it will spur me into action, since I want to be accountable not just to myself, but to those of you who bother to stop by - for which I thank you.

I like the new background. It actually is quite warm and reminds me of the bedspread that was on my bed at my grandparents house (a nice old Victorian house). Many fond memories of warm summer nights and sleeping just under that crisp cotton bedspread. It also matches Ms. Austen's nice over-dress in her litho on your page. Keep up the nice work! I enjoy stopping by each day.

It just occurs to me that our names indicate we obviously have a thing for baked goods. ;)

Thank you for visiting! To clarify, the image isn't actually Jane Austen. I just wanted to find a suitable avatar for Lady Crumpet. I am not quite so girly or pale or costumed in real life, alas. *grin*

I like! And, while I understand the desire to be accountable to yourself, I hope that you have FUN redoing the template. This web thing we do... it should be fun. Even when you're making yourself respect your own goals and deadlines. So, enjoy!

Thanks...I keep forgetting the fun part. Once I get into the process I do enjoy it. It's the sticking-with-it-part that always gets me discouraged and so I end up leaving things unfinished.
