A Break Up And A Makeover! (EMI Gets A New Look)

2:36 PM

I Cant tell you how thrilled I am to get this blog design of mine up. A big thanks to the hubby for tolerating all my nagging. We have spent the last two days designing this. So glad it all turned out looking... well. quite fantastic if I do day so myself!

My biggest struggle with designing my blog has been keeping a signature look while my blog evolves and requires new features.
I would find these fantastic digital scrap booking kits that inspired me... however in the end it did not quite represent who I was or my true style. While I have become more comfortable in finding and sharing my voice I have begun to yearn for a blog look that reflected that.

Headers Of The Past: Most people have a list of ex-boyfriends well... I have a list of ex headers. The struggle between what I want and what I think my readers want. And well like any relationship a blog evolves and grows and if you cant grow with it you end up left behind.
 So I guess this is where headers go to die... a header grave yard if you will.

Break Up With Header Poem
For I am your maker and you my creation
created from my mind and my determination.
It was great while it lasted. You gave it your all,
you sparkled for me and I had a ball.
Its so clear now, how it wasn't made to last
Its not you... or even me. The Internet changes too fast.
Stubbornness isn't progress. Now I can see,
your unchanging ways are stifling me.
Though the separation may sting as you reflect on the loss
know that I am grateful and don't forget to...floss?
Its better this way and someday you'll see,
life will go on and your better now without me.
The world awaits you, life is like butter,
spread it around and it couldn't be better.
Your still a breath of fresh air, just like a tic tak,
Now go on your way and never look back.
