Trying on a new outfit

Sorry if any visitors are getting confused. I'm learning how to manipulate the HTML codes of my blog and having fun with design.
It's still the Oyster, just tweaking the ribbons and bows!
I found this background on Simply Chic Blogs.

I like it. :)

Janet Johnson said...

I agree. It's nice. I like to tweak, too. Happy tweaking!

Deb Salisbury said...

I like it! Calm, but festive. (If that makes any sense... LOL!)

Lydia Kang said...

Yeah, I'm trying!

Calm but festive.
Femme but not overly girly.
Organic but not too crunchy.
A touch of wit but not silly.
Soothing but no soporific.

I have a lot of demands!

Amanda J. said...

Yea, that's what I did to mine since I was tinkering with it because it was being stupid anyway. I like this one; it's very soothing. :)

Janna Qualman said...

LOVE this color scheme!

I was eying mine today, too, thinking it may soon be time for a change.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

This is a beautiful blog design and color. Thanks for visiting my blog and mentioning my contest. I'm now following you, too. It's a pleasure to meet you. :)

Wen Prior said...

Hi Lydia! Nice to meet you on my blog, I'm a follower too, although my profile picture didn't show up. Pft. I love your background! I've learned how to do the background bit, but not the color around the text. Love it!

Gail said...

I do like it, but for me, darker backgrounds with muted print color are hard to read. But then, my eyes don't work so well anyway!

Thanks for the sidebar mention of the contest!

Jemi Fraser said...

Very nice! I'm totally jealous if you're finding it easy to do - I just about broke the universe trying to change mine :)

Lydia Kang said...

Jemi--it took a while for me to figure out how to do stuff. If you have any questions, email me and i can try to help!

Gail--I'm going to change the color of the highlighted stuff so it's darker and easier for you to read. HOpe that helps a little!

Tricia and Wen--nice to meet you too!

Jana and Amanda--I love your blog schemes! They're gorgeous. And enviable!

Hi! first time visiting you. I like the soft look. Well done!

Alesa Warcan said...

Good job!
I've been wrestling with HTML as well, but I still haven't a thing to show for it.
I pretty much want to do everything from scratch... and I'm just taking my time. It'll get done... Tomorrow.

Talli Roland said...

Nice! I like it, Lydia!

Jaydee Morgan said...

I'm loving this new background. It looks awesome :)

Slushpile Slut said...

Love the background! I myself, just figured out how to do HTML...It's a lot like rocket science!
