I have been feeling like my blog needed gussying for some time now; frankly, it was long overdue. I have had this same basic look for years and had that weird little bitstrip Kimmie in the masthead (yeah...remember her) as a place-filler for much too long. Daily, I have looked at it and dissected what wasn't working for me...so finally I decided she needed to be sent off to cartoon heaven and I needed to come up with something new.
|this was one of the original sketches she sent me! So cute!|
She did not disappoint. I sent her some pics of me and after some back and forth conversations, we arrived at the awesome image above, which seems to work awesomely with the fonts that I already had in place. I couldn't be happier with it! [Tangent: I love it so much that I want to take it to the stylist next time I get a trim because this is exactly what my hair looks like in my mind! This would not be completely out of the question because my hairdresser told me that on more than one occasion she has been brought a cartoon character's photo to replicate. Apparently the "after" haircut in Tangled was very chic. ] Go check out Michelle's etsy! She is a doll.
