New Layout!

Hi all. The month is drawing to an end, and as each day passes, it's another day closer to this blog's first birthday. It's a bittersweet sort of realization, seeing as it unfortunately coincides with my graduation and unemployment. But such is life. But I've been soothing my poor soul with my (re)new(ed) singer obsession, Bat for Lashes.  She's pretty awesome.  Her voice is slightly haunting, and reminds me of Tori Amos in some ways.

I've been listening to this song on repeat for pretty much the whole day while playing with photographs and css/xhtml. As useful as Blogger is, it's slightly limiting and frustrating to edit the layout with all its widgets and gadgets and whatnot. Staring at the expanded code for the widgets made my brain melt a little.

Anyhow, I wanted to liven up the page a little. I usually play it safe with very neutral colors (well, technically black and white aren't colors, but we'll pretend they are) that aren't very glaring or diverse. This time, I'm going for the whole green/teal thing. I think it works well with my header photo, don't you think?

I also added pages! That way, I can revel in my vain self-whoring. That, and now there's a menu page! With photos! Go go go check it out!  I'll hopefully be adding a recipe index section as well whenever I get around to it...

I want to thank everyone for all their comments, emails, and orders so far. It's definitely been making this past year a lot easier, especially as May is inching closer.

I've been baking here and there since coming back from LA, but most of my time is spent working on dance stuff! My dance group has our first showcase coming up, and I decided to be in 5 dances (semi-in charge for 4 of them), I've been working on advertising flyers and programs, and whatnot, so I've been keeping busy. I've also fallen slightly behind on my economics homework, oops.

Anyhow, I hope y'all like the new layout!  And I leave you with one more Bat for Lashes song.


  1. You'll find something soon! :D

    I love the pictures you post of your creations.

  2. The new color scheme makes me want to eat the screen. Kudos for getting the blogger toolbar to behave with the right color.
