A New Look And Some News

 Over  the weekend Talk2thetrees has acquired a new look! 

It had been nearly a year since I redid the look of my blog..
So, I sat down and sketched out some ideas.

I wanted a more refined look.
A little darker.
But also pretty.
Less cute, but still happy. 
Less scrapbooky, but still artistic.

I think I've accomplished just that.

I'm very very happy with the way my blog looks now. 
I feel it fits me quite well. 

It took me over 18 hours to redo my blog.
To make the buttons and the banner, figure out the HTML and CSS and get it to look just right.
Those of you who are serious bloggers know how long changing a blog can take.
 It's no easy task.  
But, when the end results are just what you've wanted, it's totally worth it. 

So, let me know what you think of the new look.
Let me know if you notice any funky problems, like images being cut off.
I know on some screens you have to scroll to the right a bit..
But, let me know if you notice any problems! 

And now for the news...

Talk2thetrees hat shop is staying closed until further notice.
What a fun shop that was. 
But, I am having even more fun focusing on my art work.

I'm sorry if you wanted a hat for Halloween!   
I may open in time for Christmas.. 
but if I don't, and you still really want a hat, 
send me an email and I might just make private sales.  

I've had some incredible opportunities come up lately, and it is pointing me in a different direction.
And I'm excited. 

A few weeks ago, I mentioned I had some big news...
then I forgot to mention it.
Well, I will soon.

Sorry for the cliff hanger.

  7. I love the new look! I just use templates, I only started blogging two months ago & don't really know what I'm doing yet. One of my favorite things on your blog is when you do outfit features. My blog is about sewing, it's my passion. One day I'd love to make you a dress and link blogs. You are deep into painting and I'm covered up making Christmas presents...but if you are interested for a later project lmk. Oh, my blog is don't judge...I'm still in my early stages! Ha!
