blog | a new header

For about 3 years now, I've been using photos of the kids as part of my blog header. You can see some of the different photos I've used here at the wayback machine.

I do all my own creating in photoshop elements (I upgraded to PSE9 six months ago, but still use it at it's most basic), and have tried to tie all my blog elements together. I don't like the "cartoon-style" of lots of professionally designed logos and blogs, and my blog is about our life behind our door, so a photo of the door needs to be part of my "branding"

I have been on the lookout for a nice template to use as my header for many months. So you can imagine my excitement when I randomly checked out the Coffee Shop Blog (for the first time in a year or more), and found the perfect header!

I'm pretty excited about it - I can change the photos as often as I want, or never change them again, and still keep the same basic design. I can also use the same design on my facebook page.

Do you change your blog header regularly?

  2. I do like it and agree the door needs to be there. I have changed mine a few times. I actually am feeling the itch now but since I paid for someone to redo the blog, business and etsy shop I can't really justify it @@

  3. You have just reminded me that I need to change my blog banner now that Valentine's day is past. I always love your banner with your kid's photo included!

  4. I like that you've included the door in your header! I've changed my blog header at the beginning of each new year.


Thanks for leaving a comment!
