New Year, New Look, New Sleep Patterns?

I know that many of you who read my blog are creative types like me, so you'll probably understand this. I woke up at 3:30 AM this morning and spent the next half hour lying in bed, my mind bursting with creative ideas. I decided to write them down and try to go back to sleep. Didn't happen.

So, what did I do? Well, since I didn't feel like dragging out my paints and supplies, I just moseyed on down to this computer and started playing with my blog design (yes, that was on my mind, too). This is what I came up with in the wee hours of the morning. I completed my header on Picnik ... a tip from Danielle at DanielleisNesting. The layout is the basic simple template from blogger. I like it right now. Simple, yet sophisticated and the best part about it is that I can do a seasonal header if I just want to change it up a bit.

Anyway, I do have some cool projects that I'm thinking of creating, but first I have to head on over to Home Depot to see if they have what I want. Oh yea, and then there are my writing deadlines...I've got to finish a few articles before I do anything else (including rambling on this blog).

By the way, my (personal) new look is courtesy of Ki at Junk Camp. I won this great hoody last month on her blog giveaway! So comfy, so cool! It says, "Peace, Love, Junk" in case you can't read it. I actually selected a brown hoody, too. She has a shop at her Junk Revolution site where anyone can purchase them or something else. If you haven't heard of her or visited her blogs, you are missing out big time!

Later the same day...still haven't managed to get to home got in the way...funny how that happens. Anyway, I'm starting to get tired, but I'm determined to go to bed at my regular time, so maybe I'll actually sleep all night!!

Hi Renee. I know exactly what you mean about getting up super early or staying up WAY past bedtime because of creative projects or ideas... That's me all day! LOL

Love the new header! A New year is a great time to change things up a bit on the blog. I like that you can customize by season, I would try that but I know I wouldn't stay committed to it. ;)


BTW, super cute hoodie!
