New Look and 10% off in the Shop!


Ava's sultry look, originally uploaded by wickedfreshie.

So, after much soul searching I decided to change the look of my blog a bit. I've read a lot of comments lately that people DO NOT LIKE black backgrounds. I chose a dark background for my blog for a few reasons. First, my color scheme was an homage to the cute little monster in the above photo, my cat Ava. Also, I'd heard that black backgrounds were more energy efficient and better for the environment, a la blackle. Third, I thought the dark background was more striking and a stronger anchor for my words and pictures. But, I don't want to hurt anyone's eyes, so I acquiesce. My new color scheme is inspired by the sky; the blue of a sunny sky, the grey of a stormy one and the pinks purples and oranges of a sunset. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Is the new color scheme more pleasing to your eye? Is it easier to read? I'd love to hear from you! How about this, every person who comments here will be eligible for a ten percent discount off an item from my shop! What a deal! Just be sure to mention your etsy name in your comment and mention your comment in the notes to the seller when checking out.

I love your kitty. I have always had cats...Last year, we bought a "rag doll" cat from a breeder and my son (who is now 7) is severely allergic. Of course, we did not know this...Your blog is great. Good luck to you.
