Pampelmuse and Me has had a facelift! 

Over the weekend I put the final touches on my new blog page. The old one had been with me for a little while and I was feeling in need of a bit of sprucing.  If you read my blog in your reader, pop over and check out the new design.



The re-design also gave me the opportunity to have a bit of a play around with 'css code'. One of my long-term goals is to become internet and computer literate, which includes knowing some basics about html and css code. Many youtube and blog tutorials later and I'm a few steps closer to my goal.  I want to thank one person particularly, and that's Katrina at Pugley Pixel and Powered by Pastries. Katrina is a bit of a computer-whizz and has some awesome internet tutorials on her blog as well as lots of freebie fonts, graphics and little pieces of internet wisdom. She also has two free blogger designs available for everyone to use - I ended up combining the two, deleting a few things and adding a few more to come up with my final design. Thanks Katrina!

There are still a few things that need working on - the blogroll and archives pages are still works in progress and I'll slowly be adding to them over the next few weeks but right now I'm feeling prety proud of my internet wizardry.

it looks great! I've been meaning to redo mine for a while but I'm so busy that I've had to settle for minor tweaks for now!

You should be really proud Clare!
I love the new look, and am so in awe of anyone who can work on the code to make the changes they want. I keep saying that I am going to try to learn more about that, but never seem to get to it :-(
Maybe over the summer!

it like the internet version of rearranging a room in your house, sometimes you just need a change!

i'd like to get better with html but i get lazy because lachlan knows what he's doing so i just direct him while he types away :)
