New blog look

While there are many things that I am good at, visual design / marketing type of stuff is something I can definitely continue to improve myself on.  

I started this blog with a free template that I thought was cute, but it didn't really gel with the name I had chosen or even with the type of blog I wanted to do.  So, after many frustrating hours last night, I have changed the look of my blog to more of a literary, story-type feel, which at least matches the title of my blog.  I had seen myself using this blog to tell stories about my soaping journey, recipes I have created, lessons learned, etc. 

I may continue to adjust the blog design as I learn more about Blogger, and as I develop more fully the essence of this blog.  Just wanted to give you all a heads-up that this is indeed the same blog - just trying out some new things!

Let me know your thoughts on the new design and layout - what you like and what doesn't quite work for you.  



  1. I love the new look has more of a virtual notebook feel, and the search and subscribe buttons at the top are very cool!

  2. Love the new look! The banner is fun and I love the cute little buttons that look like stamps. =)

  3. Thanks, Cee and Anne-Marie - I really liked those buttons, too. That's one of the things that drew me to this blog format. Like everything in life, this is definitely a learning process for me, and I know I will continue to improve over time!


I would love to hear your thoughts, comments and / or questions, but inappropriate language or spammy comments will be removed. I try to respond to all comments, so check back!
