52in52: The blog makeover reveal

Sorry I was closed over the weekend.

I know you will forgive me when you take a look around and see what has been happening.



The bird has been retired!

The exceptionally talented young lady from The Stockport Hotel worked busily over the past couple of days on my blog makeover.

It turns out I won the competition that Suger Coat it put together (thanks to you guys!) and I am now sporting a whole new vibe.

Same me. Different space.

Thanks x1,0000000 to The Stockport Hotel. I completely rate her patience and her skills. What a cool chick! You should visit her gorgeous blog to see more of her talent on display.

I still have a couple of tweaks to do here (like my signature and fixing up that blasted LinkWithin that has been kaput since I changed my blog address details) but I was so excited to show you that I just had to do the big reveal.

What do you think?

Oh and I have a button now  - so don't forget to grab it if you want a piece of me on your blog :)

Love it to bits. You look great!

Link within in working for me... go figure.

One thing... I can't read your header font very well. Might just be me, but it's a bit 'busy' for my eyes. That's the only negative I have. The rest is ALLLLLL positive. The pegs are beautiful. x

Good Golly Miss Holly! said...

Well, good for you, MM! I particularly love the simplicity of the header. I did a post on doing a fancy signature if you want to try that. J x

Love it!
Love it!
Love it!

You must be thrilled.
The pegs are inspired and I love your photo....and the button!

I'm with Bron, the subtitle in your header is a bit small.

Apart from that, it's all super fabulous!

Looks fantastic!! Love the pegs!

Andrea said...

I really, really like it! I think it fits you! I like how you added a picture of yourself too! Congrats on the new look! Yea!

Megan Leslianne said...

Hello everyone! :)
I designed MM's blog for her.

In regards to the font issue:
The subtitle font on the header may appear small or slightly blurry to those of you who are using Internet Explorer. I create my designs based on Google Chrome as it is a superior browser (try it out!). The header is sharp as a tack in Google Chrome.

The subtitle font is actually the exact same size as the OLD subtitle font on the old header (both were 7 pixels high). The fact that the old subtitle was in caps might have made it appear more readable.

Have a great week!

Your blog looks fantastic. The pegs are such a great touch - like everyone else I love love love them! Congrats - it's brilliant!!

Rhi @ Hummingbird's Song said...

Megan, you are one talented lady! I absolutely love it!

Kymmie said...

Loving your new bloglift (and new profile picture - there you are!). Clean, pretty and gorgeous. Although I will rather miss your little bird. She was sweet too. I have a thing for handwriting fonts - love. And so perhaps just increasing the size might help? But that's just me (and yes, you'll notice some handwriting fonts in my space too). So glad you won the competition! xx

Christie said...

Congrats on winning! Your new space looks fantastic.
