Friday, April 20

Welcome!

Welcome to my new layout!  I am SO in love with it!  It's not that I didn't love my old design (because I DID), but I was ready for a change.  This change has exceeded any expectations of loveliness I could have had.  First of all, the pretty painting was done by my dear friend Beca (of Tumbleweeds) and then tweaked just a bit.  The amazing Jill (of Lune) helped me customize a template by Katrina (of Pugly Pixel).  For reference, here's a screenshot of my old design:


She served me so well.  Thursday did this blog design for me, which was my first real blog design.  I will always have a special place in my heart for it.  (Thank goodness I remembered to take a screen shot!)

I hope you will be patient with me as I adjust and add a few things here and there.  I'm still a novice when it comes to this stuff, so I'm sure there will be much trial and error.  Oh, and while I'm thinking about it, I have a dot com now!  You can find me at skunkboyblog.com.  That makes me feel so fancy!

Alright, now it's time for me to play a game of catch-up on emails and blog posts.  Wish me luck!
