You're in the right place!

Don't worry... you're definitely in the right spot, just gave the place a little face lift.

I decided it was time to update the photos at the top of my header... and I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to do this... but I opened Photoshop and started playing around and an hour later I taught myself just enough to be able to replace the old pics with new pics! I have to say, when I actually uploaded the new header, I had my fingers crossed it would work, and when it did, I gave myself that 'uh-huh, oh-ya, pretty impressive' type nod! Back in University, I actually had to learn Photoshop as part of my degree, but do you think for the life of me I can remember anything everything it does? With this small feat, it could be the start of a new learning obsession.

Once I got the header done, then I started surfing around for a new background and came across one from Dotty Dot Dot that caught my eye.  It's still polka dots but has more of a boy feel to it, which I'm into these days because, as you know, I'm surrounded by boys all. day. long.

Then, just to be fancy, I added this fab little signature! It's been a full day at the bloggy office... hope you like it! Let me know if you have any problems viewing the new look, as it looks great for me in Firefox, but I know there can always be a few challenges if your using Internet Explorer or Safari.

Happy Friday!

(Editor's note: I got a little crazy last night and figured out how to change not only the look of the text in the header, but the background too... I LOVE Photoshop! Beside is what it use to look like - it was previously designed by Becky Squire of Creative Blog Designs.)

I love it! It's something that I have been meaning to figure out how to do on my blog, you've given me inspiration!
