New Design

It took me many hours of metaphorical sweat and tears, and copious amounts of literal frustration, but I have successfully updated my blog design! In a way I miss my old design, because it's the first one I've ever put a lot of effort into. I think the new design is a bit more streamlined. Here is a before and after:

I decreased the size of my banner, added and modified the top links, redesigned the side links, changed my about me intro, increased the width of the blog a bit, and changed the background to a honeycomb pattern I made here.

I want to say thank you to Pugly Pixel. Almost all the graphics I used were from her site, and the scalloped edges tutorial sure helped a bunch.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, it was rough. I was borderline obsessive-compulsive over tiny little details. But I suppose attention to details pays off in the end, even if it drives you crazy!
