A Little Updating : :

I spent a little time yesterday changing a few things around here and in my etsy shop. Notice my new header up there? I like it much better than the old one, although I just can't seem to figure these things out completely? With this one, my problem is getting the size right. I'm only able to add one much too big or this size? Without that issue, I really hope it represents my blog well -- pillows, organizing, Anna Maria Horner fabrics, more Anna Maria Horner fabrics, and applique. I hope to add a quilt up there very soon, as well!

I also updated my Elephant Pillow photos, finally. The last pictures were taken on a dark rainy day and the redo for them was altogether forgotten... until now!

Yes, Much better! But there's still so much work to do!!!

And what about you? Do you have any new changes to share? I'd love to see what you're up to!

  1. The pillows are so cute! I have lots of photos that I'd like to do some updating on. Oh, to find the time! :) I did a new blog and Etsy banner a little while ago. It feels so nice to make a change. It just makes everything feel fresh!

  4. I like the new header! I revamped my blog a couple of months ago and I'm so glad I did.

    Love the elephant pillows, too!

  5. The pillows and header look great! I think the sizing has to do with the built in coding of the page...i struggled with that too and ultimately had my husband help but got a lot of info from the blogger forums on where to go in the code to fix it...couldn't describe it to save my life!

  6. I one day just sat and re-did my header in small pixel increments until I found the right size, then I saved it in my computer as "blog header" with the dimensions next to it so I knew what fit. I'd like to re-do my header now, but wouldn't you know that computer crashed and I'm on a new one. Ugh!

    Love your elephant pillows, BTW!

  7. I know how good it feels to finally update photos you weren't happy with! They turned out beautifully. And your header looks great too!!

  8. I have the same issue with my header - it's a titch too narrow. When I tried adjusting the pixels it would sometimes lose all of its sharpness for some weird reason. So I chose short and clear vs. wide and blurry.

    (love the elephants!)

  10. I am going to TRY to make some pillow covers. I can sew, so hopefully they will turn out ok if I use your tutorial as my guide. We just got a new couch and I want to "fancy it up" a little bit. Thanks for the great instructions. I can't wait to get started.
