Still Partying - and My New Look

Some people buy a new outfit to wear to a party. However, since this is a blog party, I decided to get a new template and update my photo. I know what you're thinking: I'm a party animal!

Again, I must be a technological dolt because I cannot for the life of me make the Ultimate Blog Party picture 'clickable.' Here's the link:

I've had a few guest stop by my humble blog. I've been reciprocating by visiting theirs. As few I'll probably visit again. It's been fun. A bit of work, though. I actually don't mind that my blog doesn't have an awful lot of traffic. I also like that my 'must visit' list of blogs is relatively small. I'll always make room for a really great blog, and sometimes I have to let go of other blogs (none recently, though). But I digress....

So, how do you like the new look? Is it too blue? I looked at a pink template, but to be truthful, I'm not a pink kinda gal. Nothing against pink. I like the color just fine. It just that as a mom of three boys, the past 13 years of my life have been filled with blue, blue and blue.

I also updated the photo. It's not the greatest shot because:
  1. no one was home to help me so I took it myself - of myself - not as easy as it sounds
  2. my digital camera adds 10 pounds
  3. my digital camera adds 10 years

Anyway, this was my first blog remodel since I began in 2005.

I like your pic and you look younger and trendy too.

Love your new blog design too :D

Hi Elle - I like the new look. The blue is soothing (at least for me!) And the picture's great, what are you talking about?! Love the haircut!

Thank you for the kind works, shionge. The template is a standard Blogger template, but I grew tired of the green and yellow dots.

Thank you, sue. I've missed you - been checking your blog for updats. Thanks for the compliment. I actually cut it last summer. Every few years I revert to the bob. I didn't know if the template was too blue. Glad you like it.

First off, I love your title! Cheese goes with all kinds of whine in my book. Second, I LOVE the colour blue! My curtains are teal blue right now... can't imagine any other colours... and no way would I ever use PINK for my rooms.

Third - I LOVE your humor!

Enjoy rest of the party!!

Okay, I had to come by because I have to tell you how much I LOVE your new picture. You look great.

Elle*Bee said...

Thank you, curiosity killer, , please stop by again!

And thank you, nadine, for the kind words. I actually cut the hair last summer (the photo was taken yesterday). I figured it was time for an update.

I've given up trying to get to every blog. :) Come on over and party at my place! Nice to run in to you at the party before the clock strikes 12!

Better get back to my carriage before it turns in to a pumpkin!

I'm giving away some Pysanka Easter Egg Sleeves that are fun to decorate your eggs with and very pretty (Russian and Ukranian designs).

I've never seen your previous blog, but you can't go wrong with blue :)

Elle*Bee said...

Thank you, gavin, that's what my boys said! Welcome to my blog.

So sorry for not welcoming you to my blog, sprittibee. I did visit your blog and love the egg sleeves. Especially the one of Jesus. Wow! Please stop by again.
