New Stylin

Well, I have finally (with lots of help from Case, xxxx sweetie) broken out from the standard blogger header and colour scheme... so ta dah!

I am pretty happy with it, but maybe it needs a bit of tweaking? The LCD monitor on my laptop is good but I am not sure how the colour scheme is represented on other monitors. Maybe I should cut to it... I am really anxious to know what YOU think, please be honest... The good, the bad, the ugly.. Like it, loathe it love it etc.... I promise I wont get mad or offended. So please leave a comment or email me (eatstuff (at) gmail dot com) and let me know..

If you do, I promise (cross my heart) to return to regularly scheduled blogging and give you my SHF entry.. ok? Well we have a deal then...

Looks great, but I think I prefered the previous colour scheme... although not sure why!

I wait with asbestos suit to be shot down in flames :)

Clare Eats said...

No Andy....
I said I would be very nice and not shoot anyone down in flames.... anything in particular you dont like?? the sidebar colour... I think perhaps it should be the dark red... and am in consulations with his master about it...

Clare Eats said...

lol, much to practical?

hi clare - love your new banner and light blue background. Ambivalent with the sidebar color, i think ur right tho', u may need a darker shade of red but all in all a real nice change!

Clare Eats said...

Hi Eatzycath!
I am so glad you like the banner...
Yeah I think the same darker red would be better too.... I will have a look at how that comes across tomorrow

Stephanie said...

I'm really liking the new red...makes me think of cherries...

The blue's a nice contrast, and I could go with the sidebar either way.

All looks good to me!

Hi Clare,
nice changes! although I agree with what you've already been discussing: the sidebar. I think its colour should match better with the colours in your banner, the darker red or even the blue at the top. Your pictures have been great lately, so Im not surprised you're ready to take the rest of it up a notch! :)

Amy said...

I really like the new colors, Clare. As for the sidebar--I dunno, I kinda like the idea of white. But I've had white on the brain lately (been thinking about my own design changes), so that may explain it.

J said...

hiya, think it looks swell...adorable, just like your blog content ;) cheers,j

mariko said...

I think it looks great! How do you make your photos look so outstanding? Is it just some natural Aussie talent or something?

Hi Clare,
Well, I've figured it out. You never sleep! That's how you get so much done (and fit in so many meals!) :)

LOVE the purple color (though someone else called it light blue)--my monitor is ancient.

Cute cup with heart at top, but IMHO that bright pink/red is pretty, well, bright. The sidebar color is nice, but it's hard to read the black type on it.

Or maybe it's all absolutely perfect and I'm just cranky because I'm hungry and just saw that AWESOME pizza! I am definitely having pizza withdrawals now. :)

Nic said...

I lover the foam heart, Clare! I can never get that in my foam.

Ana said...

Clare,
I like the new template. And I see lavender, not light blue. Love it. It goes well with the dark red.

I guess I'm getting behind in my own template design. I have some glitches that some times show and some times don't and I cannot see what is causing them. Sometimes my top banner shows and sometimes it does not. Very frustrating.

Well I'm going outside weed the garden. At least I can pull something out in frustration and do some good.

Nice colour scheme. Nothing like a fresh coat of paint to liven up the place!

Clare Eats said...

Hi Mariko

thanks!!! I think it is just that the bush is sooo beautiful ;)

Hi Farmgrl....

hmm you will definately have to tell me what you think when you arent having serious pizza cravings! It was a good looking pie he he he

Hi Nic

(dont tell anyone... but it is actually an old photo from EOMEOTE that I didnt use...) The foam was actually abit thick.. compared to what I am doing now but it is so cute!

Hi Ana
If you have a problem.... let me know and maybe I or case can help??? cant wait to see your new template!

Hi AG

I definately agree.. and it's mine, all's mine I tell's ya! :)

Reid said...

Hi Clare,

It looks really nice. I like the colors, although maybe the side bar is a bit light.

Clare Eats said...

Hi Reid
I am so glad you like it! I am definately going to try a darker side bar!

boo_licious said...

clare, I like the light blue/lilac bit and the foam heart on your banner. So cute. The red bits are also quite unique esp the way it fades from light blue to red.

Are you giving any lessons on changing templates as I would really love to break out of the Blogger mould!

Cara said...

I love the color, although I haven't been to your site enough to remember the old scheme (sorry, I will try harder!!) But the site looks great to me!

Lex Culinaria said...
