Today I declare that we shall take ourselves slightly less seriously. At least until I get utterly sick of this new background, that is.
It's true, I have a history of revising my website design without much notice. Some days I just wake up and realize I'm exhausted by the look of it, and must make a change before fourteen minutes pass. That happened a couple weeks ago - I'd grown tired by the simplicity of the white background that had so satisfied me for months and months, and gave myself this red background. Which I never have mentioned in my blog because I knew it wouldn't last (I still love the texture and the color of that red background...it's just not particularly interesting, now is it?) although I did get an email from a concerned friend who said, "Um, that's kinda' dark isn't it?" And she was right but whatever...some days we feel a little dark.
And today? We feel a little...um...punchy! So I'm playing around with red circles and as soon as I finish writing this post I'm going to click the button that will make this funky background my site's background. I'm not bored, exactly. I'm just looking for some fun and some change.
Soon, hopefully, I'll sit down with some real purpose and think through a design scheme that will be worthy of keeping for longer than a week. But for now? Now we're gonna' have some fun...
Circles on the brain?
Something just occurred to me. Earlier today I was on a blog I found because of an email sent to me through my own site. I posted a comment on that other site. There are circles in that blog's design. Green ones, in this case.
Meanwhile at work I've been working on the design of a newsletter. Used circles in that design, too.
Plus, standing behind a colleague yesterday while she pulled up a site online, I noticed this gloriously fun design in the header of a site she was using. Yup...you guessed it: circles. Colorful, magnificent ones. Loved that design.
Whassup with the circles? They're everywhere I look. Maybe that's why I was so keen to have some circles of my own for a while. So to speak. Anyway, I just thought of it and thought it was worth mentioning.
Now I'm gonna' go have some yummy dinner with sis and her baby. Haven't seen Mr. Pie in a while. (Sunday seems like a long time ago, somehow.) Been kinda' missing them. Gonna' have fun. Kid-friendly restaurants. Yay.
