New Design

I have spent part of this weekend playing around with the design of this site.  I wanted to go for a more simplified look, and wanted to take advantage of blogger's page feature.  I've created two new pages: "About me," that goes into a bit of info about why I started blogging in the first place, and "Project Archives," which has a better list of projects categories in specific sections like food, pets, crochet, etc. I'll be tweaking these pages a bit more in the next few days.

I also have a rotating image for the header.  It appears that the sizing is slightly off in IE8 and below. I am aware of it, and am looking into it (something to do with the background-size not available in those browsers).  A few other changes, the tag cloud has been condensed considerably, as it only represents tags that have been tagged more than 3 times.  Also, I've brought back the Blog Archive list for quick blog browsing. In the future, I plan to also include a Charity page and a Recommendations page.

Anyway, let me know what you think of the new design.

Thanks again for reading and Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day. :)

[Update 9-21-10: I believe I fixed the sizing of the header for all browsers.]

I love the new look! I especially like the crafty photos at the top. I read your new profile too (though you misspelled your name- it starts with a 'C' you know) and I had to look up amigurumi animals, 'cause I had never heard of them. In finding them, I also found pics of amigurumi ROBOTS- sooo cute! I think you should make one of those! (And if it needed a good home, it could come live with me ;-P)

@Ladyaero: I'm glad you like the look. LOL... I think several people would agree with you on my name.

It's a deal... if I make an amigurumi Robot, it's yours. :) Thanks for coming by and checking out the new design.
